So, Brian Moore ("A Mischievous Leprechaun With Words," by Elizabeth Venant, May 26) is not a "jock, a poker player or a football fan."

Yet he derides some lunch companions because they "drank fruit juice." Perhaps they are recovering alcoholics. Maybe they wanted their heads clear to better hear Moore's ideas. Possibly they simply favor nutritional beverages over booze.

It is no longer a gaffe to turn down a cocktail. Catch up, Brian.
