I trained my Border Collie / Samoyed mix to do this, I had to put the beer in a huggie, though, as she tended to drop a bottle on the hardwood floor.
She was too smart, though, and when I left the towel tied to the fridge door and we went out, she ate an entire pumpkin pie and a bread. I was mostly annoyed that she ignored her lesson on how to *close* the fridge door and left it wide open.
The story here is that the judge is sealing the videotape of the incident until after it’s been shown in court at the cop’s manslaughter trial. You read that right: he was charged with manslaughter. Wondering if LA has a felony-murder law, as that really sounds like felonious assault.
Of course, the standard question: why is only one of the cops being charged?
Radley, use some cheaper grade of bourbon, say a blend, rather than Woodford for your old fashioned. Woodford is too good a single barrel to be spoiled by additives. Woodford should be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of spring water. Preferably neat.
I was in London recently and went to a bourbon blues bar that had waaaaay more of a bourbon selection than I’ve ever seen before (of course, they’d never even heard of Crown Royal.) They made carefully crafted old-fashioneds (?) and used real absinthe in their sazeracs. Man. That was a bar. Turned me on to the Mantini ™.
Radley, for the life of me I can’t find anything in my comment regarding how long you have or have not been drinking bourbon. But thank you for the information.
As for the “cocktail wave,” no thank you. That’s a bandwagon which I’ll let pass me by. I’ll stick to taking my whiskey neat and my lager cold.

I love Old Fasioneds (is that a proper usage), and I have never seen Mad Men, and doubt I ever will – though I have heard it’s good. I’m just not very invested in “good” television. Give me the crap on UPN, CW and the rest of the also rans.
