Thank you Bill, with all the bad news in the world it is comforting to know that there are people working for big companies that really care about us.

I will take this opportunity to admit that usually I pass on these touchy feely kind of messages, but I actually feel better after reading this one, Bill, thanks again.

The folks at Miller don't care about Kevin or anyone else. They care deeply about selling beer and not losing market share and they will go to any lengths to accomplish these ends. They will even use poor Kevin as the focal point in their local ad campaign. It's not about helping Kevin, it's designed to keep their brand name in front of people and, secondarily, to appear as caring good guys. These people are not brewers with a marketing department, they are marketing machines that just happen to be selling beer.

It's "The Onion," folks; it's a joke.

I agree with Rob.

Sales come before brewing in their eyes.

I thought alcoholics went to meetings? By the way, My homebrew club meets every other Wednesday so I'll see ya there.

Hey wait a minute, that didn't come out right...
