Brother can you paradigm?

From an article discussing the disasitfaction with the new five day work week in Korea:

"Due to the five-day workweek system, the labor life paradigm is changing. Previously, people took breaks so they could work; now, they work in order to get to the weekend," said Shin Min-young, a researcher at LG Economic Research Institute.

Thank you Mr. Shin in scoring a 9.0 on the bullshit-o-meter. We have some lovely parting gifts for you.

I also got five bucks in my pocket that says Mr. Shin woke up that day and said "Today I am going to work in the word "Paradigm" into my speech so I look really intellegent!"

Too Good to Pass Up

I know I have not been doing much here lately. Howeve this quote was too good to pass up. From a recent National Review article:

"Because of Bush's tax cuts, I saved a million and a half in taxes last year. Does anyone think that's fair?" Ben Affleck asked at a July 2004 John Kerry fundraiser.

Politics aside Ben, do you REALLY want to open up a discussion about what is fair about your life in relation to mine?
