    Usually, I like like to take a light-hearted approach to the content on this site. But I think this a very interesting topic. Historically, its fun to look back and see a Napolean or a Marc Antony and how their alcoholism impacted history. But its a reminder that abuse of anything is obviously a bad thing including power and alcohol. Furthermore, its a reminder that these significant figures in history have the imperfections of the common man. It points out that we shouldn’t idolize politicians (wink* ;-) current president). This might be the most important topic on the site as well as the silliest. Great job Matt
