Letter to the Editor: Response to research

To the Editor,

I am prompted to write to you by the article that appeared in the Feb. 17 edition of “The Bucknellian,” entitled “Study shows drinking is not all bad” and the editorial that uses the research described in that article to criticize the University for failing to “realize realities.”  Can you tell me if Hoopes and Beeson’s study considered the race and gender of participants? I ask because if it is the case that Bucknell’s white male students more heavily populate the binge drinker category than do women and/or students of color, then it is no surprise that the binge drinkers tend to earn higher salaries.
Curious about the details,
Professor Lintott
