Issue Number 1:

I'm currently drinking a Red Hook ESB ale. It's kind of thick and fruity. Discuss.

Thick and Fruity.  Initials R.H.  Man, I have this feeling that there is a joke in there somewhere, but I just can't seem to place it.  ;)

I'm not drinking anything right at the moment, as I have a lawn to mow.  But I do have a 2002 Familia Zuccardi Malbec that I am itching to pop the cork on.




Excuse me, but according to the United States Supreme Court, a tomato is a vegetable:
Nix v. Hedden, 149 U.S. 304 (1893)[1], was a case in which the United States Supreme Court addressed whether a tomato was classified as a fruit or a vegetable under the Tariff Act of March 3, 1883, which required a tax to be paid on imported vegetables, but not fruit. The case was filed as an action by John Nix, John W. Nix, George W. Nix, and Frank W. Nix against Edward L. Hedden, collector of the port of New York, to recover back duties paid under protest... the court unanimously ruled in favor of the defendant, that the Tariff Act used the ordinary meaning of the words "fruit" and "vegetable"—where a tomato is classified as a vegetable.
