GEORGE: "Yes, 1 certainly would like tp hear why you call that an old fashioned idea, Judge." OLD JUDGE: "Glad to tell you. George. Until recently, a person known as an alcoholic was generally treated as a socia,! outcast. Little if anything was done 19 understand him or help him. But, during thp past few years, medical research and study has developed that alcoholics are really siclf: people ... that there is usually a deep- rooted physical, social or emotional reasoi 1 i behind their behavior. That's why today so much is being done to help them by finding out and correcting the condition that leads them to excess." GEORGE: "How many folks are there like that, Judge?" OLD JUDGE: "Well, according to scientific research, 95% of the people who drink, drink sensibly. 5% do so unwisely, at times. Included in that 5% is the small percentage of the sick people I'm talking about." GEORGE: "That certainly gives me a clearer picture. It's the most sensible approach I've ever heard on the subject."
