Still, I take your point, generally, and agree that we would prefer not to see partisan bickering in either the magazine or the forums. And yet, the whisky industry does not exist in a vacuum. Taxation, environment, social and moral issues, all touch on the drink we love. Some political discussion is probably inevitable, I'm afraid. Keeping it to those issues that are pertinent to the world of whisky should be our goal.
Still, if we can have a "World Cup" thread down there at the bottom where anyone (not me!) who finds football dreadfully boring may ignore it, I suppose there is room for about anything. However, common decency (if that's not an oxymoron) demands that everything be kept in its proper place, and respect be shown to all.
I would like to point out, in no uncertain terms, that we seem to adhere to this idea the vast majority of the time, and would like to mention that I immensely enjoy conversing with such a group of individuals.
Believe me, no offense was intended...just satirical comment!
As Mr. T said, we occasionally need a little reminder. I don't think that many of us would want to swing entirely in the opposite direction and refrain from posting constructive material out of fear that someone may take it the wrong way. Like you wrote, suggesting that a discussion is probably for another place and time is an excellent method of self-regulation.
While we're at it, though, I like traveling to Kentucky - very close by and it comes in handy whenever I get the whiskey bug.

I may just have to write a response...
I know that Mark - I'm talking about the response. Anyway, I think the letter has a good chance of being letter of the month in the next issue.
What's the Blue Hanger like?
