  1. I think it's time to accept the fact that these kids are looking for the shortest and most efficient path to the NBA, and I don't blame them - the halcyon days of Lew Alcindor, Bill Walton, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, etc. etc. etc. are over, I'm afraid - it's only fair (who are we to deny these kids their wealth and fame before they get injured?), but a part of my youth has gone away. That said, there's LeBron James.
  2. Noted chocolate fanatic "Scott" of dallasfood.org fame alleges in a series of exposés that from inception through 2009, the Masts were peddling remelted commercial bars as their own bean-to-bar products. At that point, having established momentum, the Brooklyn-based hipsters apparently tried to make a shift to legitimate in-house production from bean-to-bar, with disappointing results. It is unclear what goes into their current bars, but their labeling has shed most of its origin information, leaving behind a disputable company history. What kind of people would have the audacity to start another Noka-type fraud, post-Noka? "Celebrity Hipsters Reportedly Sold Remelted Commercial Chocolate" by Tony Cenicola on vanityfair.com
  3. Summary: 1) Empire Merchants (a wine distributor) donated $33,000 to Sen. Jeff Klein's re-election campaign. 2) Empire Merchants is pushing a bill, which was authored by Jeff Klein, that would benefit almost exclusively them. How? 1) The bill requires that all wine sold in New York is warehoused in New York for at least one day 2) Empire Merchants has their warehouses in New York 3) Almost all other competitors have their warehouses in New Jersey with its lower costs 4) These competitors will now have to make arrangements to store their wines in New York for one day 5) The estimated consumer effect is that wine prices will be raised up to $7 a bottle Here is the New York Post article. For $33,000, Empire Merchants gets to try and drive their competitors out of business. Courtesy of Senator Jeff Klein, author of the "At Rest" bill. Is this a de facto bribe? Is it a payback? Or ... is this just good, honest lawmaking? Decide for yourselves.
