(Posted from The Publeconomist, published 11/19/09) I recently wandered across this Boystown-based (Chicago) blog: Twinks Who Buy Drinks.  Cute stuff, check it out.  If you’re not sure what a twink is, it’s slang in the gay community for a young, thin guy.  The term also usually carries some...

(from The Publeconomist) Furniture-makers, beware. You’d think that with the buzz surrounding the new Barnes & Noble e-book reader, Nook, that I’d be able to go furniture shopping and get a pleasantly discounted bookshelf. Unfortunately, Ikea isn’t biting. I do believe in the future of e-books...
