NaturalBlog News Roundup

Boy, I sure didn't see this coming. Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown are separating. This is treasonous. How, you wonder? Osama bin Laden loves Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston is making herself available. Ergo, Whitney Houston is aiding our enemies. The NaturalBlog makes no distinction between the terrorists and those who want to date them.

Exception proves the rule. Two economists from a libertarian think tank say that drinking (moderate, of course. Moderate!) boosts your income. The thinking is that those who drink socialize more, have greater business networks, and end up with "superior market outcomes." The researchers are from San Diego State University, which was conspicuously absent from the Princeton Review's recent list of top 20 "Stone-cold sober schools."

Shawn Carter reenters the workforce. Jay-Z is ending what he described as the "worst retirement in history" and will put out a new album this fall. You had to know he was bored when you saw that HP ad from a few months back. I wonder if he's doing this because Beyonce got tired of him lounging around the house in a $50,000 robe.


Does it fly, at least? I'm all for the future, but can somebody please make sure we don't end up looking dumb?

And the NB is a great example of an ever improving market outcome, now that he's been promoted to a job where drinking copious amounts of alcohol in the afternoon and smoking long, phallic cigars have become a necessary part of life.

Poor Mrs. NB.

Now they're publishing papers to justify drinking? And here I am, thinking that nothing could further reinforce my already strong libertarian leanings.

To bad this Tuesday we have Commies A, B and C from which to choose to serve as our Commonwealth's next governor...

(Reason could be the best magazine out there.)
