The US is the oldest continuously functioning democracy whose status is enshrined in the formal law of the land.

I just read Waterford-Wedgewood are on the ropes and unlikely to survive unless bailed out soon.

Waterford and Wedgewood are, and have been for eons, icons of fine living, and losing them would be terribly sad. My family has used Lismore crystal since long before I was born. It will last forever if I continue to remember to put it away on New Year's Eve.
