All this education, and I'm still not a drunk

by John MacBeath Watkins

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, I'm clearly not spending my share on alcohol:

Of course, they are talking dollar value, not actual alcohol consumed. It may be that the more education you have, the more likely you are to be a wine snob.

Can't be communion wine, that's free, although it is a fact that people with more education are more likely to attend church. Could be the kind of education they get, because fundamentalists tend to place more restrictions on the education of their children -- homeschooling them so that they will not be exposed to certain ideas taught in school, avoiding sending them to secular colleges. Probably not letting them choose a party school, too.

It does seem likely it's related to income, which also correlates with education, which also correlates with drinking craft beer instead of animal beer.
