Think Progress Discovers Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Other Lite Fare

It’s Friday, so I’ll leave my book alone for now and focus on some less serious matters.

1. From Think Progress:  “Serena Williams Beat Maria Sharapova For The 17th Straight Time. But Serena Still Makes Less Money.”  This is one of those great stories where the laughter starts with the headline.  While Williams has dominated Sharapova in recent years, “it is Sharapova, not Williams, who makes the most money,” according to TP. “In 2014, she was listed as Forbes highest paid athlete, earning $24.4 million. Serena earned $22 million.”

Oh my Gawd, I think I’m having a fainting spell!  You can guess what TP claims the cause of this gross injustice is.  (“Isn’t it nice that TP is concerned about injustice among the 1%?” — the Wife.)

2. The Annivesary of the End One of the Worst Marketing Decisions of All Time.  Tomorrow is the 30th anniversary of the introduction of Coca-Cola Classic.  If you’re not aware of what that means, you were probably born sometime after about 1975.  For more, go to 4:43 here:

 

3. Moore vs. Krugman Death Match!  On Wednesday at Freedom Fest, Stephen Moore and Paul Krugman had a very informative and, at times, spirited debate over the topic of “How can we best restore the American Dream?”  While the debate is not yet online, my friend Elizabeth Sheld has a very good report about it at PJ Media.

4. And, Oh, By The Way.  Did you know there is a new book out about Medicare?  Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Lulu.  My friend David Catron highly recommends it.
