Old Champagne Keeps Its Bubbles - From Kovel's Komments

Old Champagne Keeps Its Bubbles
Bottles of vintage champagne were salvaged last summer from a shipwreck that happened near Finland and Sweden between 1832 and 1844. Close to 50 sealed bottles are expected to sell for about $68,000 each. The champagne will be tasted, then recorked, then sold. The current record price for a bottle of champagne is probably $21,200 for a 1928 Krug.

Quote of the Day:
"Were the pictures which have been drawn by the political jealousy of some among us faithful likenesses of the human character, the inference would be, that there is not sufficient virture among men for self-government; and that nothing less than the chains of despotism can restrain them from destroying and devouring one another." --James Madison, Federalist No. 55, 1788
