The Multifarious Mix: June 21, 2012.

Are some drugs worse than others? According to the DEA: drugs bad. All drugs bad! (I think this may have been followed with a grunt and hitting something caveman style). The sane people of the world are wondering why we can’t at least admit that pot generally makes people relax, which is a lot better than the effects of meth, crack, heroine, cocaine, certain painkillers, ecstasy and alcohol.

A friend of mine works for this theater group, and it sounds awesome. I told her to come start a similar group in Minneapolis (it being second only to New York City in live theater per capita).

Schroedinger’s Threat – it’s like the cat, but worse.

Ahh, the information problem. Downgrading of major banks a little overdue.

No Trader Joe’s for Minneapolis this time. I’m more interested in the last sentence of the article:

Trader Joe’s attempted to open a store at 22nd Street and Lyndale Ave. South in 2009, but failed to garner necessary exemptions to bypass a spacing requirement between liquor stores.

I know MN has some stupid liquor laws*, but spacing between liquor stores? Seriously? What do they think is going to happen? Competitive prices? >_<

Interesting NPR blog post on owning music.

Dirtying Up Our Diets: Will the rise of farmer’s markets fight back the rise of auto-immune diseases and allergies? It’s only an op-ed, but it raises interesting questions.

*Note this is coming from someone that doesn’t ever drink alcohol.
