It's martini time

Full story: Eureka Times Standard

Bernard de Voto, an American writer and historian, described the martini as "the supreme American gift to world culture." That gift will be mixed, poured and enjoyed from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka, and all for a good cause.

Not that anything will probably be done about it but your drunken threat is a legal threat to specifically kill someone.

Not very bright are you.

You don't know the name "Lois Wilson" because he's ALREADY DEAD doochbag. "Lois Wilson" started the anti-drinking movement.

Lois Wilson did not found an anti-drinking movement! She was the cofounder of Al-Anon Family Groups, a 12 Step support group for anyone affected by someone else's drinking.
Al-Anon was adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. It was founded in 1951. Alateen, a youth program for young people affected by a relative or friend's drinking was formed in 1957. Lois Wilson was also instrumental in its formation. Lois Wilson (aka Lois W.) was the wife of Bill Wilson (aka Bill W.), the cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Millions of peoples have been helped by Al-Anon around the world.
