    They don’t live longer, they just look that way. Think Keith Richards.

    WOW !! I didn’t even go to the Les Jones web page before writing that. Keith has now become a Jungian archetype for personal dissipation.

    It just seems longer for the non-drinkers.

    I drink a little, and I’m heavy. Does that count?
