    begin World War I and World War II Beer drinking is at the root of the lugubrious sentimentality that makes murder for an idea logical Conversely drinking nothing at all is equally dangerous Try to imagine Washington D C s infamous Beltway as a moral Berlin Wall within which low rent chiselers concoct wars and other forms of our future suffering I recently read that there are sixty lobbyists per member of Congress Think if liquor and beer were forbidden within the Beltway and each day the lobbyists gave each member of Congress a good bottle of French wine Grace would return quickly to our bruised Republic I would also like to remind those teetotaler fundamentalist titans Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell who are so enamored of political power that the Catholic Church has maintained its political power nearly two thousand years no doubt because the leaders drink wine I well remember a group of bulbous priests at a Roman trattoria quite literally pouring down wine I asked the waiter what they were celebrating and he said enviously that they did it every day They were drinking Antinori Vipera which is scarcely cheap plonk Come to think of it I would gladly contribute to a church that offered a full glass of Côtes du Rhône for Communion At a wonderful local Mexican restaurant called Las Vigas I often begin a meal with a shot of Herradura tequila a Pacifico beer and an ample bowl of chicharrones which of course are deep fried intestines after which I have a plate of machaca and beans Mexican reconstituted dried beef laden with chiles I hosted a feast for twenty five friends last April in this restaurant which included a whole wild pig spit roasted giant Guaymas shrimp eight to a pound and platters of machaca Herradura and Pacifico Wine simply isn t appropriate for these flavors We also had a couple of divine mariachi singers who had a dulcet effect on the crowd singing their melancholy plaints about love and death which neutralized any strident effects of the beer Curiously New York City is the only place on earth where I feel an urgent need for a vodka martini actually a raving desire A day of back to back insignificant meetings and the sight of thousands of nitwits milling around talking on their cell phones deeply enervates me My soul becomes splenetic and I need to Taser myself before a pre dinner nap A bar next to my hotel on Irving Place is kind enough to serve me a martini for only thirteen dollars a price at which you can buy four in Montana In New York City however you can hear expensively dressed career people talking about themselves at a speed that will remind you of the old Alvin the Chipmunk phonograph records You leave the bar in a hurry thinking that Castro had some good ideas and take a snooze after planning the evening s wines Life is rarely instructive One
