Letter: Society winking at alcohol as drug

Jess Shively


To the editor:

I am writing in support of the letter from the Rev. Ed McClure titled “Alcoholic excesses destroy lives.” This letter was published in the Daily Journal on Nov. 15.

I agree wholeheartedly with his comments. It is interesting to note that on that same day, your newspaper published a nearly full-page story extolling a new nanobrewery in Greenwood.

Recently, I issued a challenge to a leading media outlet in Indiana to conduct an in-depth investigation of the effect of the personal and family lives and society as a whole, due to the use of alcohol. Excerpts of that letter follow.
