a conference. As evidenced in
writeups in the black flags of the
industrial pirates, liquor seems to be
uppermost in their minds. Here's
the songs they sing:
"Lead us to that happy, happy land,
Where rivers of beer are found,
Where sloe gin rickeys
Are a hangin' in the air
And highballs rollin' on the ground."
