Good Cheap Wine
Last night I had to work late and had a slight stomach ache, so when I got home and didn't feel like eating or drinking "the usual," I pulled out the last bottle of wine I bought a while back. A few months ago I decided to experiment with Cabernet Sauvignon of various prices under $20. I don't even remember what they all were now; I just know that the last bottle sat and sat. It was the cheapest of them all, the Tisdale 2004, price: $2.99.

As I sit here drinking another glass, I'm still amazed. I'm not a wine connoisseur by any means, but I've certainly had more expensive Cabernet that tasted much worse. I decided to look it up and found that one source - reviewing the 2005, not the 2004, I'd note - didn't have much good to say about it (although some of the replies are much more positive), but said it was much better after it had breathed. Then again, I see that others say that letting wine breathe is overrated. I only found one review of 2004 Tisdale, and it was Shiraz, not Cabernet, but it still seemed good and sensible and similar to my own experience.

One Down, How Many More to Go?
In case you haven't heard, the Diocese of San Joaquin (California) has voted to leave the Episcopal Church.

"Please, young people... Elvis has left the building. He has gotten in his car and driven away.... Please take your seats."

Here is some interesting commentary from Kansas City Episcopal hospital chaplain, Father Marshall Scott.
