We Like the Term ‘Managing Euphoria’

The Boston Health Commission, which compiled emergency-room statistics dating from 2004, applauds Bostonians for really knowing how to handle our liquor during championship wins: “Clearly, the data show that our town of titles has an effective public safety response when it comes to managing the euphoria that comes with winning championships. And while it’s always important to remind people to drink in moderation, we are not seeing in Boston the horrendous consequences of excessive alcohol consumption that has enveloped some other cities.” Is it responsibility? Or do more people simply pass out in the street here instead of at the ER? [UH]
