Thanks for the quality feedback! I'm proud and honored to say that most people disagree. Consider my previous comments reviewed and accepted.
On Wine 101: The Buds Are Breaking
Posted on April 15 at 11:45 a.m.
Oldtimer, the only nerve you hit is that you have taken a bizarre and admittedly annoying obsession in attacking my otherwise relatively respected work from behind an highly uninformed and anonymous veil.
It's cowardly, and easy fun to occasionally defend myself against such shallow advances. I don't always agree with Bill, clearly, but he has the guts to use his name, for which he commands a much greater deal of respect from myself and everyone else who reads our website.
As to your request related to drunk drivers, I actually covered all that in a previous story here: http://www.independent.com/news/2013/... in which I cite a study that concludes: “There has been no significant upward trend in collisions in Santa Ynez.”
So if you disagree with the facts, that's fine, but understand that just saying the same thing over and over again doesn't make it true.

Also, if this is not of interest to you or others, may I direct you to my page of Indy articles, where in the last week or so you may have read my other stories about dinosaur puppets, nonprofit filmmaking, coastal agency fining resort for archaeological damages, vintners fighting over boundaries, sea otter lawsuits, lead as poison, old town goleta, entering the burial crypt of the mission, funk zone politics, and much much more. If you can't find anything interesting in there, well, I can't help you much. http://www.independent.com/staff/matt...

I'm sorry you're not interested in our region's most vibrant and economically important industry. It drives tourism and the restaurant sectors, employs thousands of people of all ages, classes, and ethnicities, and is one of humankind's oldest and most civiization-changing practices. And just to stave off the teetotaling comments to come, while alcohol abuse is a problem for some that should be acknowledged and treated accordingly, many millions more enjoy fine wine (and beer and liquor, etc) in thoroughly responsible ways. For such an old timer, you really need to grow up!

Oh my biggest fan, the oldtimer!
Unfortunately for your analysis, amount of comments is not a very good indicator of popularity.
What is somewhat more reliable, however, is which stories achieve a Most Emailed status, and this story has sat on that list for more than a week now. So it is, in fact, quite popular! And tasty!
On Digestif as Your New Leaf?

Sorry for the obvious typos but was rushing before heading out for the holiday. They've been fixed.
Of course, silly errors like these have almost nothing to do with "quality reporting." Thankfully, I've never been accused of having problems with that by anyone with a real name since I started as a journalist many moons ago.
Maybe you should practice a little "quality reading" though. I don't think I've ever written a surfing story in my life.
