Reasonable Doubt

There are a lot of reasons I don't go to church much anymore. The fact that the people I'd be surrounded by in the pews are desperate enough to think that New York City tap water can cure cancer or jumpstart the economy? Yeah, that has to be pretty high on the list.

There are a lot of reasons I drink Miller Lite. The fact that Budweiser gives me a ranging headache? Yeah, that has to be pretty high on that list. But that doesn't mean it doesn't bother me that Anheuser-Busch is being bought out by a foreign company. Because it does.

There are a lot of reasons why the Bride wants me to start investing money. The fact that the Wall Street Journal's magazine, Smart Money, has deemed breast-implant companies a wise place to store some cash? Cest magnifique!

Also, check out tomorrow's New York Times for a piece about Square Pegs and another about a documentary trying to discern where the line between North and South (Jersey) is drawn. (I'm of the old 609/201 mind. If you were 609 in pre-cell America, you're South. If you were 201, you're my mortal enemy.
