The Old Turning a Negative Into a Positive

Remarkable. Sixty hours later, after some sleep and a cold shower, a nasty hangover can be beat. Frank Solich is living proof, and we're not talking 120 proof, either. Solich apologized Tuesday for parking/driving his car the wrong way down a one-way street, being unable to roll down his window and struggling with his command of English (no, I have not been drinking ossifer) during his arrest on drunken driving Saturday night. But hey, every burg has an Otis the Town Drunk. In Athens, it just happens to be Solich! The good folks at Ohio University see this as an opportunity to move forward. Because of Solich's interest in the mysterious demon alcohol, the 61-year-old will now be able to better educate the student body about its dangers. We never knew that good, old Ohio U. had such a reputation as a research university. We'll drink to that!
