Driven to drink 

A larger proportion of Americans are drinking alcohol today than at any time since 1985. I have several reactions and questions.

  • Awesome! I hate drinking alone.

  • Is it any surprise that Americans, at the margin, need more self-medication
    at the moment?

  • Does this mean that the neo-temperance movement has peaked? I sure hope so.

  • Talk amongst yourselves while I ride my bike to Lambertville, drink beer, and -- Allah forfend -- return.

    Be careful!! DWIs are issued even when riding a lawnmower.

    Wouldn't the TH Teen be the one to ask on this?

    Lambertville is a fine place to engage in this thankfully-increasingly-prevalent diversion, 'Hawk, or so say I from my less-than-diverting digs in Yardley. Though, I do quite like the view from "The Landing," in New Hope.
