As a young law student at Yale, I had the great honor of studying Constitutional Law under the genius-hero, Robert Bork. He later came to grief because of the attacks on his ethics led by Teddy Kennedy.

What Bob Bork taught us was to look for inconsistencies in the way that the law is employed and/or how government is run. If you find these, you often have a Con Law problem and possibly a major social problem. If the state says that all men are created equal and then allows, even endorses, one race owning the body of men and women of another race, there’s going to be a crisis. We can call it the War Between the States.

This comes to mind because of the so-called “opioid epidemic” as to which media and government figures are screaming bloody murder and rightly so. Thousands of Americans dying because they want to change their moods and thus take fentanyl or overdoses of heroin, thousands more made into languid skeletons, the living dead — that’s no joke.

So, I think we can assume that we are wary of Americans consuming substances that drastically change their minds and moods.

But then how can we eagerly advertise wine, beer, and liquor to Americans on TV and in print? Martinis change a woman’s mood quickly, as many of them have learned to their regret. Vodka and orange juice can make a man as high as if he were under anesthesia, writes Ben Stein in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
