Some recent stories I've found interesting

From Freakonomics ... The US approach to online poker is violating WTO rules, so Antigua and Barbuda may soon be able to sell pirated US movies (legally).  As a former online poker player, I would hope this pushes the US towards online gambling legalization.  Our government is so messed up that I am not confident.

From Mankiw's blog.  I think this is the economics equivalent of a "cat-fight".  Entertaining, but you feel wrong watching.

From The Smoking Gun ... This lady says she isn't going to leave any tip on her receipt and the waitress publishes her receipt.  Reminds me of this great scene in Reservoir Dogs ... (warning - adult language):
