    He's no hero, and, if as AA said -- if he were my son I would have lost my mind if I saw what he was doing and been tempted to do what those rioters couldn't -- but he ain't guilty.

    Sanity has prevailed. I hope the prosecutors die in a fiery car crash on the way home.

    Let the riots begin.

    Just wondering.
    My guess, and just a guess, they had agents on the ground during a LOT of the riots last summer.

    They weren't there to make arrests.

    Maybe they were too busy with their ongoing search for Jimmy Hoffa.

    This site has great reporting on the trial.

    They actually tracked down Freeland’s previous addresses and knocked on doors. Almost like real journalists.

    It’s a good bourbon, but I’m not a fan boy like some with it. I much prefer their Col. E.H. Taylor, George T. Stagg, and Elmer T. Lee bourbons from the same distillery. All are hard to find.
    ER tasted a bit too thin to me, I don't know, something about it.

    Thanks for the input. I have been a beer drinker my whole life, but have had to give it up as I can't keep my weight under control when I drink the beers that I like, so I have been broadening my liquor horizons lately. My foray into Bourbon is rather new and I am looking to find a daily drinker that doesn't break the bank.
    Elijah Craig small batch is the shit. this is my goto
    Buffalo Trace is good for the price

    CGVT,

    You probably want to start slow and mellow and then branch out with the higher octane cask strength and more oak-rich piquant varieties. I would stay between 80-90 proof until you acclimate on the jump in ABV from beer to spirits.

    Regular Woodford, Old Forester, and Four Roses are all good places to start for a smooth starter bourbon. The latter two are cheap. Woodford is a bit more. I’m not a huge regular Maker’s guy, but Maker’s 46 is worth the few extra dollars, IMO and is mellow.

    For a few more dollars, Blanton’s (if you can find it) and Basil Hayden fit that same bill.
    The ABV is not an issue. I have not been a real bear drinker for a few years now. It’s more of a transition from clear to brown liquors. I have found the Gins that I like but am looking for a change of pace. Years ago I was a semi serious Scotch drinker but have found that I have lost my taste for it. Bourbon seems to suit me better now
