business news in context, analysis with attitude

Been a tough, long week, and haven't had a chance to try anything new on the wine front…we'll try and do better next week. (But only because you want us to.)

Check out the cover of the March 22 edition of The New Yorker. Maybe we've been covering this business for too long, but it made us laugh.

We do have one recommendation, though. It isn’t for people with delicate sensibilities, but if you have a chance to catch up with HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which is the product of the fertile and demented mind of "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David, you should do so.

The final, one-hour episode of this season's series was on last Sunday, and it may have been the second funniest-hour we've ever seen on TV. (The first funniest definitely was last season's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" finale.)

HBO re-runs this stuff, and some of the episodes are available on DVD. Again, the series is highly politically incorrect, off-color, and tasteless - and absolutely priceless. (We like it more than "The Sopranos," which also is back, thank goodness.)

We can't wait until next season.
