While filming, many of the cast expressed concerns that viewers would think the landscape was fake. How, they argued, could moviegoers believe that such stunning scenery is real?

During the last presidential election cycle dressage took a hammering from liberal pundits who circled like jackals around Ann Romney and her Olympic contender, Rafalca. It was heartbreaking to witness such vicious assaults on a sport that offers so much joy to riders from all walks of life.

US sailors deliver wine to Tower of London

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

The crew of a U.S. Navy ship made history on Saturday by delivering a keg of wine to the Tower of London.

The guided missile frigate USS Halyburton was the first foreign ship to participate in the annual Constable's Dues ceremony at the tower, recalling the long-past powers of the Constable of the Tower to collect a bit of cargo from every ship entering London.

The Halyburton crew delivered wine; the Royal Navy crews that normally participated would bring rum.

The Halyburton's captain, Commander Michael Huck from Bellevue, Nebraska, led his men to the tower where they were challenged by the Yeoman Gaoler, armed with a fearsome ax that recalled the tower's sinister reputation as a place of imprisonment and execution.

Once admitted, the sailors presented the wine to the constable on Tower Green.
