How Can One Mess Up A Blog About Alcohol?


The New York Times has found a way. Here’s their latest post on how to treat a hangover. An excerpt:

In order to minimize the emotional damage hangovers can cause I, personally, practice a form of aversion therapy. If I know I’m going to a place or an event where temptation will be hard to resist, I read one of my favorite descriptions of drunkenness or its consequences beforehand, so that when euphoria catches hold there’s a voice in the back of my head telling me to go steady. I can recommend “The Ship Captains’ Medical Guide,” Clement of Alexandria’s “The Pedagogia,” Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat,” Tom Wolfe’s “The Bonfire of the Vanities” and Kingsley Amis’s “Lucky Jim,” for their stomach-turning portraits of the effects of too much hooch.
