IT'S SATURDAY MORNING AND WE NEED A GOOD LAUGH

Greg over at the Hobbesian Conservative provides some good chuckles in this tongue-in-cheek post on the latest Bay Area craze -- organically-grown pot. He has some fun with the organic food crowd along the way and even suggests in a bit of marketing genius that organic bottled water ("non-pasturized, unfiltered, all-natural water") be dubbed Dukakis! I imagine the bottler will use short bottles only and if the marketing department isn't satisfied with early sales, it can always rename the product Willie Water (come on, folks, don't you remember Willie Horton? -- Greg doesn't have to explain his humor!).

Meanwhile, I'd suggest to Greg and readers of ACSOL that organic pot and organic food aren't doing much for the fitness of aging hippies and their longevity. Maybe the Happy Capitalist could weigh in on this discussion, as he resides in the Bay Area and is a perceptive observer of the local scene given those fine-tuned, penetrating, Kansas' eyes of his.

Note this hirsute Haight Ashbury dweller with bottle of Dukakis in hand ...
