Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Nothing much worth talking about today. Just a few links that don't require much commentary.

The first sex themed amusement park in China is about to open its doors. Neighbors aren't happy but the owner claims it will be a public service. This quote from a local sexpert was most striking.
"But people will become more tolerant and have positive attitudes towards sex; for example, people [already] care more about female orgasm. I read a report saying in the west about 90% of women have experienced orgasm, but in China the number is only 28%," she said.
Speaking of sex, this squigged me out a little but wow, Cher nearly naked at 62 doesn't look all that different from when she wore the same outfit in her 40s. Of course she is a walking monument to cosmetic surgery, but still you have to give her some credit for working so hard to keep up appearances.

Dan has some insights for the newspaper biz. "The biggest problem facing newspapers is a well earned skepticism that they will accurately inform their readers."

Meanwhile, NYT is musing on pay models for their internet product. They should read Dan's post first.

And I'm sure you'll shocked to learn that four days after the big announcement about the health care industry's deep concern for cutting costs, they're walking back on their pledge. We're down to well, maybe they could sorta, kinda, cut some costs, someday, but only if it doesn't cost them any ill-earned profits. Someone remind again why they are even invited to the table on this when the system needs to be reformed to get their greedy paws off it.
