Do they usually drink sitting next to, and talking with, reporters
interviewing them?

Also, saying practically every Mormon you've ever met drinks
occasionally is no different than me saying every Catholic I've ever
met has had premarital sex and an abortion or two - it may be true
(hell, it *is* true), but how large and how representative a sample do
you really believe you're looking at? It's a bit insulting really,
don't you think?

Lastly, "he wears a white shirt like those missionary kids" is a bit
of a reach, no? Mormon missionaries - the bike dudes - are generally
18 to 20 years old; they do their time between high-school and
college. Our man was well past LDS missionary age when said interview
took place. A white shirt doesn't mean anything. The real trick would
be looking to see if he's wearing magic underwear.
