Wives Will Be Writing in Soon

An e-mail:

I have read the drinking article and I am unable to find any reference to one drink, two drinks or three per day as you and your readers have somehow interpreted it.

I only drink on Friday evenings and now have authoritative evidence for my wife that the usual two six-packs is actually more than moderate. Thanks for the source.

I want feminists blaming The Corner for their Superbowl Sunday Myth next January. This is my goal for today.
