Dear Readers,

The Wine Curmudgeon gets on several new, and several old, rants. TWC Begins with the usual good news item, but it all gets pretty steamy after that. Don't miss the items on the Supreme Court, Prohibition in Chicago, bullfrogs in boiling water and what wine to drink with Cheetos.
Dan Berger's onto one of his favorite topics saving under-appreciated wine types and dining slow rather than fast. The piece originally appeared in California Grapevine.
Frequent Wine Trader contributing writer Patrick Campbell was the recent recipient of the Lodi-Woodbridge Winegrape Commission "Integrity Award," and has edited his acceptance speech into his latest Small Vintner column.
Elisabeth Holmgren's Health & Social Issues column features all the latest news, all good, about the benefits of moderate wine consumption.
Jim Wallace's Online Report talks about the problems with keeping the information on web pages fresh.
It's time for Master Sommelier Fred Dame's annual "Best Wining-Dining Experiences" of the previous year.
In The Cookbook Corner, P.S. McCown reviews a professional quality cookbook now in its fourth edition.
The Book Report finds Maurice Sullivan with a surprising number of new titles released after the holidays.

Lew Perdue's popular new The Investor's Report has a look at investing safely in a bear market.
As usual, Sandi Wechsler is all over The Travel Trader and The Lodgings Report and from Indiana to the Connecticut seashore.
Pearson C. Trent III is back with an interesting piece on four rivers, all Named Green.
And finally, there are two reports in The W.I.N.O. Newsletter, one from Carson Valley, the other from the Napa/Sonoma Chapter.

Due to the archaic laws and regulations enacted in a post-prohibitlon furor to protect the morals of the consumer from the "evils of demon rum", it is not legal, in some states, for an individual to sell and/or trade wine or other licensed beverages. We ask that you make yourself aware of your own state's laws, as it is impossible for us to list the regulations of all fifty states.
