The JW thread got me thinking about the great drinkers of today. Christopher Hitchens might be one. There is something about the British that allow them to imbibe huge quantities of booze and still remain coherent and compelling even. I wonder if dedicated drinkers are drinking all day, and it becomes like breathing? Or what? I've only noticed the British to succeed at appearing 100% lucid and still have massive amounts of booze in the bloodstream.
