Help–Napa Valley

This is a slightly bizarre one, but I’ve got to stop writing my columns about Iraq. The Washington Post ran a story last month about the enviros waging war on Napa Valley wine-growers: “The winemakers are under assault from environmentalists, who have begun to disparage their trellised fields as sterile `alcohol farms’ and accuse the growers of `graping the land.’ A few radicals have even compared the vinters to `merchants of death,’ as if a tasty ripe Syrah with blackberry notes and flavors of sweet toast were akin to a pack of Camels or a Mac-10 pistol.”

This strikes me as a possibility fun topic. If you know soemthing about it, I’d love to hear from you…
