Normally, I find George Will to be a bit of a dour gasbag who is too content to be accepted by the DC Cocktail Party Circuit. But today, I have found a reason to sing his praises, especially since he seems fit do defend beer!
Now, he masks it in sociological dork-speak and wonkishness, but here is why I have a newfound love of a Cubs fan:
Suffice it to say that the good news is really good: Beer is a health food. And you do not need to buy it from those wan, unhealthy-looking people who, peering disapprovingly at you through rimless Trotsky-style spectacles, seem to run all the health food stores.
So let there be no more loose talk -- especially not now, with summer arriving -- about beer not being essential. Benjamin Franklin was, as usual, on to something when he said, "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Or, less judgmentally, and for secular people who favor a wall of separation between church and tavern, beer is evidence that nature wants us to be.
Now, if he endorsed Val-U-Rite Vodka, I may even give him a tongue bath.
