Not-so-finely aged whiskey

A couple construction workers in Holliston, Massachusetts were rebuilding a chimney in a 200-year-old house when they made a rather unusual discovery: a bottle of whiskey that is, quite possibly, 80 to 200 years old.

It was half-drunk before being put away, though, and experts say it probably has gone bad.

In what I'm sure is a pure coincidence, Senator Ted Kennedy announced he's leaving immediately on a fact-finding mission to Holliston.

I love it! HA...That Teddy is something else isn't he? He probably wants to check to see if it was one of his fathers old bottles. It is kind of a family matter on behalf of the senior senator!... Actually, it would be kind of interesting to see! Joe was a bootlegger back in the day wasn't he? Isn't that where the Kennedy clan amassed most of there wealth? It would be a fun bit of history!
