I've been thinking about the heartache because I recently saw a movie about Derek Bentley, the young man who was hanged in 1953 for a murder he didn't commit -- in part because of his ambiguous ""Let him have it, Chris".

I'd love to work that out, and if the Observer editors are skittish, Thomas might point out that quite a few other wine writers, including John Juergens (Oxford, Miss.), Richard Fadeley (Columbia, SC) and Randy Caparoso (late of Honolulu) have all persuaded their newspapers to share, and since I'm happy to publish a visible newspaper logo (and a link, if they have a Website), the donor newspaper has gained a significant benefit.
Of course, if Thomas is as sharp as I think he is, there's no way he gave over his copyright rights anyway, beyond first North American print publication, so permission may not even be an issue.
How about it, Thomas? I'd be delighted to archive your columns on the site.
