Non-Meeting Follow-Up: Sweet, Sweet Electricity

So, no meeting due to the blackout.  We’ll reschedule this topic, maybe for early next year.

Anybody have any interesting blackout stories?

Oh, BTW, here’s something I’ll bet you didn’t know that I learned while researching this topic.  At least 50 countries have legalized prostitution, including Germany, France, Canada, and Israel.   Some allow solicitation, but not brothels.  some allow brothels and even pimping (but other criminal acts by pimps, like violence and sexual slavery, remain a crime, of course).

Next Week:  Is anti-intellectualism making as comeback in America?  I’m going to try to read Hofstadter’s Anti-Intellectualism In American Life, among other things.
