The Old Oligarch on alcohol
Old Oligarch has been waxing lyrical about the benefits of alcohol, especially since the recent study confirming that regular drinking is very healthy for men. I myself am quite pleased with this latest study, and as I make my nightly cocktail, I now have a legitimate excuse: it's for my health!
Good old St. Paul was right: "No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments." (1 Tim 5:23)
