@friarmark: Thanks for this. I'm no expert, but I've noticed that in any discussion about the minimum wage, it's often taken as gospel that increasing it will cost tons of jobs and raise consumer prices enough to cancel out the wage increase.
But that assertion is often made without much evidence, maybe because it makes intuitive sense.
I'm 30 and I'm beginning to think I like alcohol too much. Stay on your current path. You'll be better for it.
But if you do decide that alcohol just isn't you're thing (on balance, probably a good decision), don't get all sanctimonious about it. If there's one thing that bugs a social group more than the sloppy, inappropriate drunk, it's the preachy teetotaler.
