Sober and depressed

Teen angst update:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana teens are drinking less alcohol than in the past, but are more likely than their U.S. counterparts to commit suicide, according to a new study of young people's health risks.

Glad they didn't try to link the two findings. "Feeling like ending it all, teens? Just toss down a few drinks and lighten up!"

The story raises the possiblity that teen drinking might be down simply because so many of them have discovered other things (such as prescription drugs) to abuse. And all that obesity-inducing junk food, of course.
