Opening Arguments

Up all night

Man, I should be practically immortal then:

Drinking coffee can not only boost your energy but also your longevity. That’s the key finding of a new federal health study of nearly a half-million coffee drinkers that found those who regularly enjoy a cup of java live longer than those who don’t.

 The National Institutes of Health study, published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine, indicated that caffeinated and decaf coffee drinkers were less likely to die from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections.
And wide awake for the whole thing. I was an addict even in high school. Other kids would be drinking those little bottles of Coke -- can you believe we had a machine in our high school newspaper office? -- and I'd be sneaking across the street to get a cup of coffee at the gas station.
Is there anything more satisfying than discovering that one of your lifelong "bad habits" might not be so bad after all?
