Let's Turn Everything Into a Comment On the Economy!
From the Mailbag: "Here’s a tip for you: I was just down on 27th Street for a meeting and thought you might like to know… [strip club] Scores West is reopening (tomorrow or Thursday) as a 'juice bar' because they still can’t get a liquor license. There’s a sign up outside the door right now." That means they can (legally, technically) dance "bottomless," yay! Here, let's write the generic media response: Which is better: a topless strip club with alcohol, or a naked one without? And what does it mean for Wall Street? (Answer: it doesn't mean anything; as Moe already pointed out, the ask-a-stripper angle on the freakonomic meltdown is so, so tired.)
