08derby.1843 "Personally, I like underdogs. If they lose, it's not a terrible surprise, but if they win, it makes you feel so damned good, like finally somehow, somewhere, somebody got some justice."--Riggsveda


Update: The recipe for the Mint Juleps worked out swimmingly. I made them in a silver cup that frosted up just as nicely as the photo, and they were quite good. Aromatic, not too sweet, just as delicate and evanescent as a butterfly on its first flight, and as deceptively powerful as 4 month old bull. Say what you will about the south, but there's a poetry there in the literature and the liquor.
