MICHAEL JORDAN NEEDS TO MAKE A FEW PHONE CALLS

The neat thing about having the news on a TV at work’s break room is
that I notice more things in the news than I did during Christmas run.

On a relatively recent vacation, my brother and I were walking through Manhattan.  the iPod was everywhere.

The Apple iPod is very old news.  They’re scrolling across the
banner ad as I’m writing this.  Yet, hooray for Apple for finally
finding a product that hits a niche and explodes to popularity, so much
so that it maintains its value.  Evidence of that value flashed on
television- a teenager in Brooklyn was killed in a fight over one.

Steve Jobs himself offered his condolences to the family.

This says two things; first that newsmedia has finally figured out that
iPods and the like are status symbols in  our culture, something
they should’ve known for some time now.

The second, is that Steve Jobs is a really awesome guy after all. 
For all the stories of people getting hacked up for their Air Jordans,
few made news, and if anyone can find a report of His Airness sending
condolences, let me know.

An unrelated question that should be asked often, is how can anyone be
so poor and jaded, or jealous perhaps, that this sort of theft is worth
a stabbing?  The beauty of the iPod is how simple and universal it
is, yet how personalizable and customizable it is at the same
time.  All iPods are the same, and no two are the same,
simultaneously, not unlike personal computers.  They are all over
the cities, and although they are somewhat pricey, but they are not
expensive.

Perhaps this question is better asked like this:  Why is it more
important for the poor to keep each other poor than it is for those
same poor to become rich?  I’d love to see statistics regarding
how often the poor rob the poor compared to how often the rich are
robbed, including the amount of damage done in the process (both in
property and injury.)

This is not a conspiracy theory.

When will Western society transcend Marxist thought?  I am not
fighting my way out of debt so I can own an Xbox 360.  Aside from
keeping the bill collectors away, what incentive do we have for not
being poor?

Mine is that I want to be able to visit my family more than once every five years.

See you next time.
