It could, but corn whiskey isn't required to sit in charred oak barrels. It can be made in charred, uncharred or gently-used barrels.

When the mix is >51% corn and the barrels are charred (and there's no sugar added, which happens with some corn whiskeys) they just call it bourbon. Also, over the past decade bourbon is on fire - so it helps with marketing the product.

I am not criticizing this article except for the stuff about Biggie Smalls, [comma splice - use a semi-colon here] I am in morning [mourning] for [our? the? US?] education system these people on tweeter [Twitter] have been through. No one has ever told them Juicy was released in 1995 [1994 - it's in the article] and in 1993 The wWorld tTrade was attacked by [terrorists using] a bomb placed by the front door [below the North Tower on the B-2 level - linked in the article]. So you can see that "Blow up like the World Trade" is a reference to the attempt in 1993 which happend [happened] 2 years before the song came out. I guess we need to update the history books again.

Just an old Big Ten student newspaper copy editor trying to help you out.

Also, read the paragraph riiiiiight after the uneducated tweeter people part. The good news here is you're correct.

Well, I won, beating the other 63 entries including one from Louis Nix, who could probably pop my head like a zit.

Feeling slightly bad about a Buckeye winning an ND contest, so I wrote an acceptance speech which they've posted here.

For those of you who don't know, D'Angelo Russell is the spitting image of DJ Byrnes if DJ was black. It's goddamn uncanny.

I hate commenting on my stories but you've sucked me in.

This is a piece about jealousy. It concludes by explaining that the jealousy is misplaced; we're comparing the 2014 Buckeyes to previous, more successful editions, not the other teams still playing. I think this what you're getting at - the end sort of ah ha's that as a revelation.

You thought correctly. And you also "bothered to look it up" which is cumbersome and time-consuming. NERD ALERT.

Fixed. Thank you.
