It seems that booze isn’t the answer in Mary Worth — booze is the question.
“Yes,” is the answer.
It’s kind of amazing to see who imbibes:
[Think about it: I didn’t start stalking following Mary Worth until after Aldomania, but look who we have hitting the bottle and lacking the ability to exert any self-control! Aldo Kelrast, jilted lover! Charley Smith, lonely bachelor! Helen Clark, woman on the phone! Jenna Whatshername and Mogen David, breakfast of champions! Lonnie Roberts, deadbeat dad on a mission! I guess this means drinking = bad! Meddling = good!]
