That's just not good enough people. I know I have been pulling my weight like I used to but I thought for sure some young whippersnappers would pick up the slack. Well it's Thursday. That gives us 3 good nights of drinking AND Sunday is the Super Bowl. I think with a little bit of effort we can get back where we belong. Top 5 at least.

We're number 15 and Milwaukee's way down at 58? I question the methodology of this undoubtedly rigorous and ultra-scientastic report.

Boston is last? The death of Ted Kennedy continues to haunt Massachusetts.

Hey, folks in Milwaukee can just hold their booze better.

To quote the late great Albert Collins:

I don't care
What the people are thinking
I ain't drunk
I'm just drinking...

No way - it's just way more expensive to go out drinking in Milwaukee, so they instead spend more money on hair gel and drink more slowly.

That being said, I'm curious how they compile "frequency of binge drinking in the past month". Is that data anecdotal?

I gotta question any study that concludes Salt Lake is a drunker town than Boston.
