If you don't want HOFers who used steroids, kick out the ones who used amphetamines. Oh, I'm sorry, that's a lot of HOFers? Never mind. Let Bonds and Clemens in already.

I'd say I've been in a solid 7-8 state for the last year and a half. Some bad days, some great ones, but overall life is good.

I posted in the JAS thread that I want to buy a bottle of this, but realistically, I'd probably work my way up, rather than just splurge on it out of the blue. I love cognac, but I've mostly stuck...

Islay's my personal fave (Lagavulin 12 cask strength!), but my wife finds it completely unpalatable. She does like some of the entry level Speysides (e.g. Tomatin).
