What’s worse than finding out that a former classmate was published in Linux Journal? Finding out that he works for Google and races BMWs on the weekends, of course. Hi, Laz!
The world’s oldest profession? Not recession proof. How did I know about this? CNN Headline news decided it was newsworthy enough for a noontime story slot. I think we’re going to need a smaller violin, folks.
