Big night for drinking last night. Swung by a friend's place and had a dram of scotch (Aberlour a'bunadh for me, Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or for him) while he handled a spur-of-the-moment work crisis, then we headed out to join some others at a great wine bar. It was packed and lively. I began by sampling two different Pinot Noirs; both were decent but unremarkable. Then I tried a delicious Sauternes. Several ounces of this liquid gold found their way into my glass over...

Good to know, Buzz Killington.

From a character standpoint, I always find Don's displays of ethics fascinating. He has a very firm sense of honor and decorum (remember him taking the other man's hat off in the elevator?), and yet he has made profound moral lapses. Both elements are plausibly written and acted, so...
