Bon mot for the week

"Alcohol is a good preservative for everything but brains."

Mary Pettibone Poole

Who? You might well ask. She is fairly extensively quoted on the Net, but there doesn't seem any autobiographical information availale on her at all. I'm guessing an American newspaper writer or epigrammatist of the first half of the 20th century...
