I had to google this:
On November 19, 1924, the silent film producer and 'father of the Western' died, officially of a heart attack suffered while on a weekend boat trip with William Randolph Hearst aboard Hearst's lavish yacht, the Oneida, while attending a cruise in honor of Ince's 42nd birthday. Other prominent guests in attendance were actor Charlie Chaplin, newspaper columnist Louella Parsons, author Elinor Glyn and film actresses Marion Davies, Aileen Pringle, Jacqueline Logan, Seena Owen, Margaret Livingston and Julanne Johnston.

In the years since, several conflicting stories have circulated about Ince's death, often revolving around the claim that Hearst shot Ince in a fit of jealousy (or shot Ince accidentally while fighting with Chaplin over Davies) and used his power and influence to cover up the killing.

A 2001 film directed by Peter Bogdanovich, The Cat's Meow, tells a tale based on these rumors. Bogdanovich claims he heard the story of Ince's death from director Orson Welles who in turn said he heard it from writer Herman J. Mankiewicz. Ince is portrayed in the film by Cary Elwes, William Randolph Hearst is portrayed by Edward Herrmann, Marion Davies is portrayed by Kirsten Dunst, and Charlie Chaplin is portrayed by Eddie Izzard.

'friggin', frakkin', frock...not only did I have to google NOW I have to NetFlix The Cat's Meow. Ugh.
Plus, I would never use a gun.
Might accidentally slip on the blood and spill some wine.

Yeah, so, she and her pal are driving down to get free wine. I can hear the conversation now.

Katie: Do we have any wine left?
Friend : No.... you drank it all. Want to go to the liquor store?
Katie: No, I'm broke. But we can take a ride to Chicago. My aunt has a basement full. She likes me. She'll even give you some.
Friend: So why aren't we on the road yet.

And I am actually happy that I am clearing some stuff out.

You might be a wine.woot addict if you really consider returning your new spiffy Droid phone because a Ty Caton TyTanium offer came up the very next day.

I will drink no wine before it's time. What time is it, anyway?

Yeah, mine too. Our regular FedEx guy is totally cool, he actually calls to make sure it's OK to leave it. Of course, I made sure I caught up with him and thanked him with a couple of nice bottles at holiday time.
For a while, there was a UPS regular guy who would leave it, but he got hurt and we had a succession of temporaries who went strictly by company policy. Now I don't know what's going on: sometimes it gets left, sometimes they leave a tag. And I can't ask when I see the guy, "Are you the one who left the last 2 shipments when I wasn't home?" If he's not the one, somebody might get in trouble.
I understand why the laws require an adult signature, they (and we) don't want alcohol falling into the wrong hands, which is the reason some states (NJ, I believe) ban such shipments altogether. And UPS doesn't want to be held liable, so their policy is to obey the law, for which you really can't blame them.
So whenever they leave a tag on the door, I call right away and tell them to hold it for pickup. That gives me a week to get to the UPS Depot, which is only 3 miles away, and stopping in on the way home from school only takes me about a mile out of the way. I really feel for the folks who have an hour+ drive. That would begin to eat into the considerable savings we enjoy here.
If you can manage to catch up with the driver once, and get him to make a second loop, be sure to thank him properly, but don't leave a gratuity in advance, hoping he'll leave it. Somebody posted here a few months back that he did that and the guy took the money, but didn't leave the wine.
