Mourning an Alcoholic Father


According to myth, Jews don't drink. This is false. According to the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous, alcohol is cunning, baffling and powerful. This is true. Otherwise, why would my father choose to move in 1991 to Portland, Oregon, to live alone with his Dalmatian and begin drinking after 18 years of sobriety?
