Let's remember that alcoholism is a disease, so clinically diagnosed that  
treatment is paid for by health insurance.

Andyrene: mocking alcoholics is so low....John  Berryman, 
Edgar Allan Poe, Truman Capote, Jack London, Ernest 
Hemingway,  William Faulkner....Okay, Eric, what say, let's 
mock all those  people.

You forgot Elizabeth Bishop, whose poem ("One Art") I was  
parodying. Poor lesbian Liz with her hourly scotch on the 
rocks and her  dead lover in Brazil. She was one of the best 
American poets of the  twentieth century.

Instead of playing The Spirit That Denies, Andyrene  should 
submit some of her own  poetry.
