Branden, your credentials are impeccable, your views consistent with your
heritage, and that is fine.
I regret that the active ingredient in coffee that causes withdrawal and
addiction, is caffeine. Caffeine is deliberately injected into any number
of soft drinks to an extent equaling or exceeding coffee. These include
colas, Mt. Dew, and any number of others. It is well not to get too hung up
one way or another over coffee, without getting equally hung up over
caffeinated drinks of all kinds.
Jokes about drug of choice are very poor in any context.
It may be that coffee is a variant form of self medication approximating
ritalin, too, for that matter.
Now, let's see, are the 12 points of the law being followed throughout your
campouts? If so, let's worry about the coffee.
Thank you for listening. Ted Burton, Inland Northwest 611, Es Kaielgu 311
