    HELP!! There was a hilarious article by Florence King in the 07/05/10 issue of National Review Magazine, and I have searched their archives, Google and Bing and can't find it anywhere, using every cross-reference imaginable. I even tried accessmylibrary.com where I've found articles before not found in a magazine's archives for some reason.

    It's about that inevitable question a doctor will ask "How much do you drink?" and her "conversation" with the doc after she was honest and said "...I don't know. After I finish writing, I unwind with two or three or four, depending..."

    Does anyone have any other suggestions (short of my retyping the whole thing)?

    Nope, that doesn't even give her newest NR column titled "The Bent Pin." It used to be called "The Misanthrope" or something like that. But thanks anyway.

    Which is probably no problem unless your schedule is for you to do three or four writing routines a day, I suppose.

    Exactly, but it's the freaked out reaction from her doctor that's funny. And it's the type of reaction that leads people to be dishonest.
