Good day, Bad day
Enjoying nature, Worshiping capitalism
 

GOOD DAY FOR: Enjoying nature, after an Italian study found that a Chinese herb called horny goat weed is a promising natural alternative to Pfizer’s Viagra and other impotence drugs. The University of Milan team hopes the extract of the herb, also called icariin, will provide the erection benefits without the potentially harmful side effects of Viagra and other drugs. (Reuters)

As banks fail, New York churches are reporting higher attendance at lunch-hour services, especially among people in suits. (Reuters)
