Random Notes On The Crisis

I was talking to a Costco manager who told me that sales of most items are flat, but liquor sales are brisk.

The New York Times reports on a phenomenon that I have heard of locally — that bees are finding homes in abandoned houses. Perhaps we have found a solution to the beat collapse. I should mention that one sentence suggests that many of the bees may be Africanized. If so, those bees may not be as welcome, because they would be illegal aliens from an undesirable continent. To make matters worse, people seem to be mixing these African bees with an American Queen and then releasing them on unsuspecting plants.
