re: #11 Oh no…Sand People!

Whoa, with that I will have to disagree. Alcoholism can be such that regardless of ‘happy’ / ‘depressed’, one can’t control the drinking. You don’t have to be depressed to be an addict.

I’m well aware of what addiction entails, since my grandfather was an alcoholic and died from the disease.

However, if you try to tell me that McCarthy’s censure and downfall didn’t lead to his personal disgrace and his drowning himself in booze, I’m going to have to disagree. History clearly bears that out.

So if the world censured Al Gore for Global Warming and told him it was a blatant lie and fraud foisted upon the people, would that make it a lie? I bet Al would possibly question himself a lot, but in the end it appears he is standing on his beliefs. I completely respect that.

Except we’re not talking about Al Gore. We’re talking about McCarthy and his lies and smears of good people. He ruined lives. I have a real hard time finding any sympathy for the guy.
