Was it Krugman who said that all Web sites are going to have a merchandising component?

Seems like a slippery slope, with wine reviews directing you straight to a source. Smart move by Murdoch. Not such a great move for journalism. You think?

I wonder if our society began to open up and talk about our feeelings because of advertising or Freud?

Once at a party a pediatrician told me he was opposed to legalizing drugs simply because he was terrified of what would happen if the power of advertising got behind them. Of course, we have seen what that has done for Ambien etc. If only a cigar were just a cigar. Nice to hear from you.
