Felicitous Phrases

By: Damir Marusic

Shamelessly ripping off Tyler Cowen, I present today’s sentence of the day:

“The more money that was paid, the more men that were laid, the more ladies that were made.”

It comes from this here article from the NY Post on the waning prospects of snaring a sugar daddy in Manhattan during the downturn.

The article, which was starting to seriously annoy me until I reached today’s felicitous phrase, has nevertheless reminded me why I don’t much care for New York City: I prefer people who’re obsessed with power rather than those that are obsessed with money. Yes, there’s a difference. And yes, it matters.
