The bottle is then riddled, so that the lees settles in the neck of the wine bottle...
Manual riddling is still done for Prestige Cuvées in Champagne... mechanised riddling equipment (a gyropalette) is used instead.
I always think, It's extremely weird that people in other countries are so interested in American politics!And then I remember: Right, that's because they know our dying and half-imagined empire might feel compelled to prove its elderly mettle by declaring war on them for harboring terrorists, Voldemort, the minions of Sauron, the "bad" Indians, Loki, the T-1000, etc. and they need to know when to run.Really sorry about that, by the way. I intend to protest very self-righteously on the White House lawn itself if for some reason we accidentally destroy Wellington with nuclear warheads.
There is that, Emma, but mainly it's the sheer entertainment. It is as if Dickens and Dostievsky and Ionescu got together to collaborate on a novel, not caring about plausibility of character or plot. Our own politicians seem boringly realistic in comparison.

Are we clowns? Do we amuse you?Well, I was reading some heavy-handed satire over at Gawker about a Congressional stenographer losing it completely and screaming into the microphone about Masonic plots and Jesus' plan for US while security dragged her away. "OK," I thought, "A valid allusion to the level of Crazy in the US House of Representatives, but not very subtle."Then I checked around to find that this is reality.
Who would have guessed that there was a House steganographer.
