'Do you think drinking should be glorified?'

'No more than anything else . . .'

'Isn't drinking a disease?'

'Breathing is a disease.'

'Don't you find drunks obnoxious?'

'Yes, most of them are.  So are most teetotalers.'

'But who would be interested in the life of a drunk?'

'Anther drunk.'

'Do you consider heavy drinking to be socially acceptable?'

'In Beverly Hills, yes.  On skid row, no.'

'Have you "gone Hollywood"?'

'I don't think so.'

'Why did you write this movie?'

'When I write something I never think about why.'"


-Charles Bukowksi (as 'Henry Chinanski' in 'Hollywood').

I like the line, "In Beverly Hills, yes.  On skid row, no."  Referring to the question, "Do you consider heavy drinking to be socially acceptable."  There is Truth in those words.
