3. That's a question that should be asked.

He was evidently a party animal in high school and college; did he settle down later? Many people do. I partied hard in college but after I graduated and had to get a job all that ground to a halt in a hurry; once the party opportunities dried up I seldom drank at all, which is still the case. For me the partying was essentially a social thing and drinking was just a secondary part of it. If a person is inclined toward alcoholism, however, the college partying is an excuse for drinking and the drinking will continue even if the parties are over. It is quite possible for an alcoholic to have a family and manage a successful career, at least for awhile. If Kavanaugh has a drinking problem I should think that would have turned up as part of the vetting process, but who knows? Maybe we'll find out.
