Andy Rooney at his desk in 1978, his first year as a commentator on 60 Minutes. Via New York Times.
A lot happened this week, between Andy Rooney, the troubles in Greece and the latest installment of Occupy Wall Street—but just in case you missed any of it, we’ve got some quick info to bring you up to date. Things just aren’t the same as they used to be...
Sid Mashburn’s a pretty serious player in Atlanta style, but until now it’s been pretty tough for a Yankee to get a proper look at it all.

Once you’re through there, you’ll have an impressive haul to pick through, ranging from white bucks to Globe-Trotter trolley cases. What caught our eye were these hoof-pick belts—what can we say, we’re suckers for unorthodox hardware—but there’s plenty more where that came from. Welcome to the internet, Mr. Mashburn.
The fine folks at the Trojan company—to whom we owe so much—have indulged their inner Kinsey with a survey of American sexual activity, and the results are eye-opening to say the least. Major cities would appear to be in pretty dire sexual condition.

Maybe it has something to do with the Underground?
More interestingly, Houston took first place by volume with an average of 101 incidents of luckiness every year. Atlanta managed 88, D.C. clocked in with 86, and Los Angeles and New York rolled over torpidly and contented themselves with 82 and 80 respectively. It might be time for a PSA campaign.
