Scott Adams wrote yesterday about risk assessment regarding the two candidates for president.

But even in your own life, you see alcohol being the force behind unwanted pregnancies, drunk driving, bar fights, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, and just about every bad decision you’ve ever made. If we humans were even a little bit objective we would never select a leader who is likely to be impaired by alcohol several hours per week, including the workday. (Allegedly.)

    As if abuse is limited to alcoholics, nice try.
