#9: horse shit! All wine contains sugar because sugars come in many forms and yeast are not able to digest all of them. This is why when you boil wine you get syrup instead of nothing. Unsurprisingly the amount of sugar in wines varies.

I do not get why wine stewards will bring wines that have an obvious sweetness and then do handstands to come up with fake vocab for "sweet" ("fruity" or "contains unprocessed sugars", yeah no shit it does) to make it sound high falutin.

Why can't we be adults and admit wines fill a spectrum from dry to sweet and different people like different points on that spectrum? Why are we disallowing the single most variable axis about wine from consideration in favor of completely subjective shit like "pear"?

Many wines are sweet. Many are dry. Almost none taste like a fucking pear.

The list is pretty lame. All the implemented recommendations are administrative in nature and largely have to do with making information available. That's cool and all, but the 15 recommendations remaining are all the ones with teeth -- like those that could change the outcome in a disciplinary proceeding.

Does cannabis city sell more than the one strain pictured above? The labeling is marginally better than what I get at the dispensary, but what good is information without choice?

@ 6 - if it's that simple, the people being interviewed on camera could have said, "the message is that corporate America has captured the reins of government and government is not serving the interests of American citizens," but they didn't.

A sound bite on TV is a pretty good platform for somebody whose goal is to push a specific change in public opinion. The fact that the "protestors" seemingly weren't interested in that platform says to me that they're not really "protesting" at all -- they're not interested in changing public opinion, they just want to wear masks and smash stuff.

So to recap: it is offensive for him to disrespect her based on the class she belongs to. (She offers no evidence that he did this, and a white guy saying the same thing on a talk show would get "talked over" too.) But it is also offensive for him to disrespect her based on the content of her speech ("stupid").

Meanwhile, it is not offensive for her to disrespect him based solely and openly on the class he belongs to.

Somebody better tell Mark Twain that we're not going to stop racism using humor so he can knock that shit off.
