    this is a very strange post. What can we say about divorcees who favour gay marriage? “let gays suffer too?”

    Seriously, I have never heard an intelligent argument against gay marriage. Mind you, it is the short end of the wedge, but so what? If two, or more, consenting adults wish to marry let them get on with it.

    levitt’s just asking to be mugged isn’t he? carrying wads of $100s around, especially in south chicago… 😉

    cba, you do have a point. I think his promise was “$100, or the maximum amount of cash I have in my wallet at that point”.

    Which would make it tempting to recognise him just as he steps into a taxi…

    Just goes to prove that economists have too much spare money on their hands.
