@NightShade09 – In case you missed Sam Tomaino’s answer to your question late yesterday, “Drinking the Kool-Aid” refers to that horrible tragedy that occurred in Guyana back in 1978 when the “Reverend” Jim Jones got his followers to drink poisoned Kool-Aid and commit mass suicide. Included among the 918 dead was US Congressman Leo Ryan. The incident has been declared by several people, including survivors, not mass suicide, but mass murder. However you look at it, it was one of the greatest tragedies involving the loss of civilian life in US history.
