My friend Jeff Gordinier has a totally brilliant Q&A with John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols) up on Conde Nast’s (I presume there’s a shorter version in the new Details magazine, but Peter Carlson of the Washington Post says reading that will make you stinky). Anyway, it took me a while to find a business/economics angle that would justify linking to it in this blog, but I finally did:

Q: Why do reunion concerts cause people so much consternation?
A: I think that word reunion—it just implies, Oh, they’re back for the money. Yeah, well, hello! Of course we’re back for the money! And what is the shame in that? When did America suddenly become Communist? We weren’t paid the first time out. We intend to be this time.

And here’s a link for which I could find no business/economics angle but is just too brilliant to pass up, about Croatia’s new national hero, the English opera singer who amusingly bungled the lyrics of Croatia’s national anthem before their glorious victory over England at Wembley last week (via du Nord).
