Link-O-Rama: Alcohol responsible for more hospital admissions than heart attacks last year

Alcohol responsible for more hospital admissions than heart attacks last year
One statement jumped right out at me: "There are also broader social implications, the report said, such as unemployment, crime and the "substantial" impacts on people other than the drinker. These include injuries related to assault, workplace accidents, motor vehicle collisions, family disruption, violence and lost income." and also a broader concept - that being that WE NEED TO PRIVATIZE LIQUOR SALES IN ONTARIO!!! Consider this: "For instance, in Quebec, where beer and wine have been available in corner stores for years, there were fewer alcohol-related hospitalizations."

There are more interesting links on the linkorama page...



The Beer Store

Two years worth of bottles. Riiiight....

My son and I are returning a couple of weeks' worth of my wine and liquor bottles to the beer store for refund. (That's how you do it in Ontario.) The clerk and I are remarking at how diligent he is as he brings the bottles in and puts them on the conveyor. I explain that he's interested because he gets to keep the money.

The clerk says, "Oh, did he go around the neighbourhood collecting bottles then?"

Long pause. "Uh no, they're just my bottles."

Jerk.
