Apathetic Insularity

From Ryan Sayre Patrico over at First Things: "The news is dreadful: According to the Census, since 2006 we have been living in a republic where, for the first time in the history of the republic, Americans drink more bottled water than we drank beer.
Why is this important? It’s important because beer is a socially oriented beverage, and bottled water is a privately oriented one. . . . Read the rest at Front Porch Republic."

In other news the sport of bowling has more followers but fewer people playing in leagues.Viking Man has been saying for years that people are getting more technologically intelligent and less able to successfully navigate relationships.
Something to think about.

So wait, now we're encouraging beer drinking? I'm confused. I got in trouble for that and now we're encouraging it? Gee wiz. Younger siblings always get away with things that older kids would have been hung for. I protest.
;-) Kidding, kidding, and again I say, most of the above script is based on fiction. :-D
