I guess I tried to be too cute

... with last week's "Question of the Week." Either no one has an opinion, or the opinions are too flimsy to offer them publicly, or the question is too silly (or not silly enough) to provoke comments in cyberspace. Not sure why the lack of comments. Should I even post Freakonomics' theory, or just email it to Bob and Deanna?

I'm interested in your take on it as most of the stuff I've read about it are from folks who live/work in "nicer" environments. Since I don't spend as much time in those environments, I'd guess my take would be different if I had the time to read it.

Okay...My guess is that their lives are lived in a state of instant gratification. They party constantly, spending their money on booze, drugs and whatever else strikes their fancy, they have no savings at all, and they have absolutely no wisdom in handling money. In one hand and out the other.

My second guess is that drugs don't actually pay as well as everyone thinks they do. Given the amount of time and effort involved vs. the amount of money made (by a street dealer) he'd probably be better off with a minimum wage job.
