A very good year for vintners

This story about wine production in the United States (with the news that there are now bonded wineries in all fifty states) struck me for the quote from an Alabama winemaker: “The Taliban are alive and well in Montgomery.” That’s an exaggeration, but not by much; one look at the Republican primaries and you’ll find lots of people with Talibanic attitudes toward just about anything fun. But I also couldn’t help but think about the leader of Jose Padilla’s old mosque… who lives in Montgomery.
