When Can a Drink Solve Your Problems?

Tonight President Obama, "Skip" Gates and Jim Crowley get together to drink a beer and discuss their problems. Will this help solve the controversy of Gates' arrest? When have you solved an argument over a brew? Is there a better way to settle a dispute?

It is discouraging that we, as a nation, are wasting so much time and energy on an autocratic cop and an egotistical professor, both of whom refuse to yield an ounce of authority. It is ludicrous that we're wasting even more time discussing what kind of beer they chose to drink. The lesson in all this is that cops don't tolerate their authority being questioned and college profs are used to ruling their kingdoms from Mount Olympus. Both need a lesson in civil responsibility humility.

A beer is nice, but it's not strong enough to wash away the anger, disrespect and ignorance we've enslaved ourselves in for generations. I think it's time for something stronger. How about we (America, Europe, Central Asia, Africa and the Middle East) hold summits where we pass the peace pipe around -- get stoned, laugh a lot, eat some great food and come to a better and peaceful understanding.

Besides, I don't like beer.

I can answer your question, when can a drink solve your problems.
When you are blowing up innocent civilians with your CIA drones and ballooning the federal deficit and want to divert media attention away from important issues.
