Around the Intertubes: March 9, 2011

1. A very happy 235th birthday to The Wealth of Nations. Naturally, the Adam Smith Institute gets in on the celebration.

2. I will make sure not to gamble tomorrow.

3. Please tell me this is a parody: “His employers are unhappy that he was distracted with prostitutes and drugs, and didn’t show up to work on time. Why not take a tip from the Chinese business community, and make visits to a KTV parlor part of Sheen’s workday?” “Sheen goes on television and boasts that he has two girlfriends, who both sleep in the same bedroom. Is he too poor to set up his wives and mistresses in different houses?” Oh, and there’s the part where the author of the piece appears to be confused about Martin Sheen’s place in American history. If this piece is serious, then it’s time for a mass facepalm.

4. Nice to see that even though he has passed on (alas!), Milton Friedman is ticking off all of the right people.

5. Of chickens, and empathy. (Via 3 Quarks Daily.)
