The New York Times is making a successful attempt at dislodging the Washington Post as my number favorite newspaper. I’m not sure what it is, but the New York Times has a more polite feel, everyone is a Mr. or a Ms. — and of course you can’t argue with the quality of the articles, they’re mini hits of crack. It still can’t really match up to The Economist, my number one engrossing reading material.
I learned the other day that 100 g of powder “blow” cocaine is equivalent to 1 g of rock “crack” cocaine. Maybe not equivalent in effect on your body, but equivalent in terms of how long you will be forced to have sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex in prison. Make sure you measure that cocaine.
