Drink Less

After the morning of Jan. 1, it's not surprising you probably wish you drank less. The question is whether that resolve will last for the other 364 days of the year. Drinking less is undoubtedly good for you: it's better for your health, your wallet and probably your reputation. Then why do we keep on boozing? Folk more learned than we may point to modern science for definitive answers, but we prefer those Greco-Roman ancients who proclaimed "In vino veritas" — "In wine [and whiskey, vodka, gin and beer], there is truth." They said it, not us.
