Isn't it civilized that when folks don't like someone (other than his singing) everyone turns to drink.
Just read a dissertation on 'painters and plumber's colic' caused by lead poisoning from lead coils in ancient stills.
Fortunately in a coral island lead plumbing is quickly lined with calcium carbonate deposits or I'd be gone to the happy hunting ground a long time ago. I'm forgetting the lead glazed water monkeys and corrugated asbestos sheets I cut and fitted in my youth. Now if I could only find my Cadmium Yellow printing ink! And I need some red lead caulking for these pipes and my dinghy.
