I love Father Rutler! He is so smart, and so profound.
Is Hitchens alcoholic?
Father Rutler is amazing.
Mrs Parkes:He denies being an alcoholic but admits to drinking enough “to kill or stun the average mule” on a daily basis.About the difference you have to ask him.
I once went on a conference on alcoholism. They pointed out that the definition of an alcoholic is anyone who is dependent on alcohol on a daily basis. Alcoholics therefore ranged from the nice lady who had two Martinis every night before dinner to the pissy drunk lying in the gutter.
Yes that definition sounds right to me!
This explains a lot.
