Like the lady said, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
But the fact is that if roses were called "fetid sewage and cheese
flowers," you'd probably never stick your nose in one to find out.
Sometimes our prejudicial reaction to a familiar name keeps us from
enjoying something or someone altogether new. The wounded winsomeness
of a Casey Affleck, for example, or the song stylings of an Ashlee
So here, for the Nth time, is a stylish little
digital camera with a lot going for it--a seven-megapixel resolution, a
3x optical zoom, image stabilization. In spite of its super-compact
design, it sports a generously-proportioned three-inch LCD
and 16MB of built-in memory (expandable with SD cards). It's even got a
distinctive look. The main strike against it is something over which it
has no control: The Polaroid name.
Hey, maybe that's enough for you to write it off. Dismiss it. Pfft, Polaroid, no thanks. But let us ask you just one thing: You liked Casey in that Ocean's Eleven, right?
Think about it.

poured out the kool-aid, locked the closet door, and told Aunt Edna we
don't want another bite of her delightful mushroom gravy. So what's
left? Only the second greatest invention the world has ever seen.
Imagine the sad world of 1927, where nannies had to spread peanut
butter on hard rolls at lunchtime and it was impossible to make a
proper grilled cheese. Where Texas Toast was still a thing from the
comic pages and flatbread was an abomination from the Ori-ent. Praise
to you both, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sliced_bread">Otto Frederick Rohwedder and Gustav Papendick</a>! You truly were the architects of modern lunchtime.

Now, we've got nothing against the established, respected wine
critics and magazines. They've earned their reputations with
insightful, knowledgeable wine criticism. (At least, that's what the
guy at the liquor store tells us.) But sometimes a perspective from
outside the wine establishment can really help us reach a deeper
understanding of what a wine is all about. Here's what three
nontraditional wine authorities have to say about the wines in this
Lucas & Lewellen Three-Pack.
Phelps County Truck & Boat Trader, Sept. 23, 2006:
"FOR SALE: 2004 Petite Sirah, low miles, good cond., runs good. Santa Barbara AVA. Big mouthfeel, berry & anise flavors, smooth tannins. Ask about hand-punching. $26 OBO."
GrapeAura: The Journal of New Age Wine Studies, Feb. 2007:
"A beacon of spirit energy radiating throughout the universe and the
innerverse, Lucas & Lewellen 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon embodies
mind/body harmony in its multicultural blend of red varieties.
Black-currant nymphs and spicy oak satyrs cavort in a deep violet
forest, twirling to the mad symphony of existence. More renewing than a
crystal yoga colonic."
Alcohol is Murder!: The Official Newsletter of the Ladies' Temperance Anti-Pleasure League, Spring 2006:
"Perhaps most insidious is the poison known as Lucas & Lewellen
2003 Cabernet Franc. Where common ordinary rotgut warns away the timid
with noxiously toxic odors and flavors, this liquid seductress hides
its peril behind the enticing flavor of blackberry jam. Stout indeed
must be the soul who hopes to resist its lush, ripe, rich, dark,
flavorful, aromatic charms, especially when served with grilled duck or
there you have it. If you've learned as much as we have from this
little exercise, you still have absolutely no clue what this Lucas
& Lewellen Three-Pack is like. Guess you'll just have to taste it
