Martini or Chardonnay?

One of my favorite moments at yesterday's Symposium to Celebrate UCSD's 50th Anniversary was when Henry Allison hypothesized that his philosophical differences from Paul Churchland might stem from Henri's preference for Martinis over Chardonnay (the drink Paul and Pat use to restore their glucocorticoid and dopamine levels). What interesting arguments the great German Idealist and the great Eliminative Materialist must have had while playing golf! I should've asked who won-- the golf game, I mean.
