Thanks for the kind words. I raise my glass of RB to you as I write this note. I had a bit of fun writing the review of RB, It is Great Bourbon.
BTW, add Flannery O'Connor to your list of great American writers. She is by far the greatest writer Georgia ever produced, even though Joel Chandler Harris (Uncle Remus stories among others, e.g. 'Free Joe and the Rest of the World') is a good read too.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas
