In Vino...

I don't think that Christopher Hitchens comes well out of this.

And oh, yes, he's an alcoholic all right. If, as a commenter claims, Hitchens drinks because "he finds people boring," instead of for the enjoyment of the drink itself, that's classic alcoholic behavior. Alchy's usually get religion in the end unless their brains go first (well, it must be admitted that sometimes both things happen), so Fr. Rutler wasn't proselytizing or uttering clerical wishful thinking, just common sense.

I can't become an alcoholic because I just don't have the liver enzymes for it. After a glass or so of wine or beer my bod just says "no mas", so there's no way to get properly baked. If it weren't for that I'd consider staying chronically toasted as a means of making boring people tolerable. But since I can't I just have to hide in closets most days.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
