Mainlining Yoo-Hoo

I think the closest human counterpart to RJ is the Dennis Leary character on Rescue Me.   Both are self-destructive, unrepentant and unintentionally cool.  We forgive them their indiscretions because they sacrifice for others.  It’s the degree of sacrifice that determines our respect for the character.  While The Dennis Leary character is a fireman and saves lives, RJ  suffers Verne.

Really not a contest.
