Nixon didn’t eat. He lived off of booze, coffee, and cigarettes. In that order. Deprive him of one and he’ll overindulge in the other two. Deprive him of two and he has the capacity to ruin the lives of everyone around him. Ask any of the boys up at HQ what it’s like dealing with Captain Nixon when he’s running low on fuel. Somebody once suggested caging him for a week and giving him nothing but water, then letting him loose on the Krauts. That would have leveled the playing field.
