Who remembers this? It's an unopened 1972-73 vintage bottle of Boone's Farm Wild Mountain wine. Marked $1.25 and recommended to be served "very cold". Most likely originally purchased from the Arrowhead Farm Fresh store in Virginia Beach by someone of legal age for someone not yet of legal age. I'm naming no names.

Today marks the 136th birthday of General Douglas MacArthur. On my way to and from work I walk by the memorial bearing his name. Like most heroes and great leaders, he was a complex person. William Manchester's biography entitled American Caesar suggests that "MacArthur was an analogue of Julius Caesar, a proposition he supports by noting their great intellect, brilliant strategic generalship, political ambition, magnanimity as conquerors, and shared tragic flaw of hubris."
One of my favorite management quotes from the great general is "You are remembered for the rules you break."
