I stumbled upon this list of teetotalers on Wikipedia.

Clearly I'm not famous enough to be on the list. But that's okay, George Hrab isn't on there either, and he's more famous than me.

It seems Geo and I are in good company on that list: Bruce Lee, Penn & Teller, Kim Cattrall (Lt. Valeris from Star Trek VI), Isaac Asimov and Bartholomew "Black Bart" Roberts (who may have been acquainted with my ancestor, Edward "Blackbeard" Teach).

Of course there are some less-than-impressive names on that list as well. But I won't talk about those.

My point is that there appear to be some interesting, intelligent and respectable people who have made similar lifestyle choices to my own. It's comforting to know that, since I am often accosted by drinkers who don't understand or respect that choice.

I wonder how often Warren Buffett gets hassled about it.
