Who's to blame when you get drunk?

On National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation yesterday . . .

Who's To Blame When You Get Drunk? A man who got drunk on a United Airlines flight was arrested for beating his wife as they walked through customs. The couple is now suing the airline for serving him too many drinks. On an airplane, at a bar, or at a party, who's responsible when someone gets drunk? Guests were:

Jody Drews, mother of Jesse Drews, who died after drinking 15 shots in less than an hour at a bar

Michele Simon, a public health lawyer, and research and policy director for the Marin Institute

Susan Cheever, author of My Name Is Bill, about Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous
