I'm All For Longevity

From Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit:

A case for wine’s effect on longevity? California wine makers tend to live very long lives. Here is a look at just a few of them:

Ernest Gallo (EJ Gallo Winery): March 18, 1909 to March 6, 2007

Robert Mondavi (Robert Mondavi Winery): June 18, 1913 to May 16, 2008

Anthony George Diener, Brother Timothy (The Christian Brothers): 1910 to Dec. 2, 2004

Andre Tchelistcheff (Beaulieu Vineyards): Dec. 7, 1901 to April 5, 1994

Louis J. Foppiano (Foppiano Vineyards): Nov. 25, 1911 to present

John Parducci (Parducci, McNab Ridge): January 22, 1918 to present

I don't think this supports any scientific conclusions. But why take chances?"

Or as WC Fields used to say when asked if he wanted some water in his drink "Good God, no! Have you ever seen what that stuff does to steel?"
