We're about to release a new show, The Truth About Stem Cells, with Dr. Sharon McQuillan. Adult stem cells are being used in cutting edge treatments around the globe. Dr. McQuillan has been involved in stem cell research for over 10 years and really knows her stuff. Located in South Florida, I had the opportunity to discuss the therapy with her over the past several months. I'm amazed by the results and can't wait to share them with you.
Interesting story about the lengths an NJ woman went to reclaim her rightfully earned parking space. She hit another woman over the head with a 15 inch steel pipe. She's facing aggravated assault charges. Moral of the story, if someone wants your parking space, let them have it!
As promised, New York's decline has accelerated. The number of derelicts living at the airport has increased dramatically in the past year, turning the main terminal into the city’s most popular de facto flophouse, where they sleep, eat and wash up while competing for space with passengers, according to Port Authority sources. But after the NYPost ran their expose, the Authority is promising to bar the homeless from 11pm to 4am daily. What a bold measure.
New York State is also incapable of understanding the unintended consequences of rapacious tobacco taxes. At $4.35 per pack, plus other levies, it's running smokers over 10 bucks a pack to satisfy their addiction. And NY can't figure out why cigarette taxes are down a whopping 54 percent. You don't need to be Ludwig vonMises to figure that one out!
And Cuba is making progress. They've agreed to pay back billions in principal to their creditor nations, sans the US, while getting a waiver of the accrued interest. Not a bad deal, all things considered.
