Bemoaning the standards at Slate 

Yes, I am something of a crotchety old man.

I'm sure everyone who glances at this blog reads Slate every day because you're all pathetic and predictable. So I'm sure you read this article about "markets" for digital music. Markets, as I learned in economics class, have the desirable quality of allocating goods in socially optimal ways (so long as you believe that a person who "has" no money doesn't "want" any food). The problem with the article is that the system the author proposes obviously has nothing to do with markets--the guy is just talking about a seller who varies his prices according to demand. That's it. No market whatsoever. I don't know how that got past the editors.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
