One of the joys of the Northwest Arkansas Times giving its Letters to the Editor section over to enthusiastic men of the cloth is the Bible lessons they share by quoting Scripture with no further obligation to back their claims with empirical evidence. I know that many readers are partial to the teachings of Jay Cole, Junior, but he is not alone.
Rev. Bill Boatright, the learned textual scholar and prolific writer from Huntsville, in today's sermon declared, "I’ve never seen any good come from alcohol — period!"
Rev. Boatright also issued a warning to his reading flock against allowing "alcohol turn you into a fool." Assuming that Preacher Boatright has taken the bone dry pledge, I'd say that other things must have that same effect.
