      When somebody says that, I figure it's sour grapes because they had absolutely zero shot at attending a school like that.

      No. Oberlin College is a high end small liberal arts college. It's pretty tough to get into it. A big chunk of their students go on to graduate school or some kind of professional school. New...

      The problem is that by the time cheap French table wines get imported to the US, they're typically no longer cheap table wines. La Vieille Ferme used to be my house wine around 15 years ago when...

      With Subaru selling 500K cars per year, I doubt the used market is going to be as robust as it has been. I just looked at the pricing for a used 2012 Outback 3.6R to see what I might expect for...

      I was going to suggest a Chevrolet Subdivision or the GMC Yukon XL clone until I looked up the price. $60K+? That's nuts.

      Pharma lives off the IPR. When the patent expires after 20 years, they'd better have other high margin drugs in the pipeline because they make doodly-squat on generics. Half my New Jersey friends...

      Layer Cake is a brand I pick if I don't recognize anything else. I know it's going to be drinkable. Chapoutier & Guigal for Rhone wines and Georges Du Boeuf for Beaujolais are the same way. Those...

      I buy it occasionally. I like to taste fruit in my wine and Menage a Trois is a real fruit bomb. It must have a ton of red Zin in it.
