    K. pneumonia!!!
    but remember and look at the question, if alcholic guy found outside a bar he is shaking and has a rusty sputum= s.peumo...
    but if he is kind of clammy due to release of endotoxin then its K pneumo...

    I was thinking K. Pneumonia but the Kaplan says that S. Pneumonia is more common, so I just wanted to double check!

    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    Remember: alKoholiKs = K. pneumoniae
