Costco's triumph, 2
Following up from yesterday
on the Wash state switch from state liquor stores to private sales.
Selling liquor in grocery stores isn't all profit; the stores are quickly realizing
they need to ramp up security. Not just because drinkers are a different crowd, but also because some liquor is wildly expensive. The news story mentions that a teenager tried to steal a bottle of cognac priced at $85.Mr Broccoli
wants us to examine this more closely.
For $85 you could buy that one bottle of cognac, and get an hour of happiness.
For $85 you could buy 85 pounds of broccoli. If you eat about 1/4 pound per day, this will improve your health for a year.
The same amount of money. One hour of happiness or one year of health.
