Food has become what makes us fat or skinny -- acceptable levels of fat or skinniness are determined by sex appeal, not by doctors, physiologists or experts in health.

Icewine is perceived as the untamable beast of the wine family. Have you ever heard someone pronounce their undying love for it? Highly unlikely.
