Mr Picky sez that guy between Winnie and Joe on page 20 is Harry Truman, not FDR. You can tell because he's standing.
The first time I'd encountered the quote it was in Molly Ivins' first book ("Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She?") and she had introduced it in the context of referring to the Texas state legislature.
In researching this article, I came across one source that attributed the quote to former U.S. House Speaker Sam Rayburn and several sources that attributed it to "anonymous". The majority of sources I encountered attributed it to Molly.
So, here I had all these sources attributing it to Molly Ivins, but Molly herself was chalking it up to being one of those common phrases tossed around the state capital. I just thought the quote was too good (and too much fun) to leave it out, so I couched the sources as "often attributed to political columnist Molly Ivins."

Beyond just the particulars of the case itself, I loved the way he hinted at the double-edge sword that is "heritage". On the one hand, people love the history and tradition associated with whisky and its production. On the other hand, as Buxton points out, everything has changed in the production of whisky.....it's all been modernized. And hey, thank God for that!
I hadn't received Issue 51 when Issue 52 arrived, so emailed Helen at Galleon.co.uk about it on January 4, 2006. The replacement issue arrived today. I am very impressed with this service and I think illustrates why I choose to subscribe to Whisky magazine. An interesting and thought provoking magazine with truly superb people providing support.
Helen, thank you very much.
