Healthy Outdoor Activity
I don't smoke. I never did. Well except maybe once or twice when I've had a feed of pints, and that mostly involved sticking them in my ears nose and so forth. It was always clear to me that one could no more justify permitting people to blow smoke on their peers than urinating on them. But what consenting adults did in private was entirely another matter. They could inhale Wavin Pipes full of tobacco for all I cared. But drink. Now that's a different kettle of fish. Drink, a priori, can be consumed without necessarily causing discomfort to thy neighbour or his wife. Drink, in moderation, need have no deleterious effects on one's companions at all. The fact some overdo it can hardly justify prohibiting the rest of us from imbibing. But I live in fear of a growing consensus that contends that alcohol as a social fact is poisoning the body politic. People are faintly aggrieved that they do not live forever, and there is mounting evidence that our lives are shortened by any consumption beyond the merest sip. May I say now to you my friends on the hills that if I am taken from you prematurely and if alcohol is a suspect at the inquest you are to rejoice in my passing, and be glad that after long days on the hills I have enjoyed that special moment when the life shortening elixir of darkness spills throatwards. I raise a special glass to Martin Scorcese McCritchly and leading lady Sharron for their recreation of this sublime moment as night fell on the Turks and the angels sang.
