What’s Your Problem With Common Sense Shaving

A new installment of What’s Your Problem is up. Note this was recorded before we saw that Greenspan had retracted his statement that the war was all about oil. So Peter and I discussed whether in fact the war was all about oil. Hint: It wasn’t. 

Also, last week I recorded a long  discussion with Dan Carlin host of the podcast series Common Sense. Part One (I said it was long) can be found here. 

Oh and viewers of today’s WYP will notice I am clean-shaven. The truth is this wasn’t so deliberate. This summer I picked up a goatee trimmer thingy and I didn’t put one of the correct attachments on the other day, so I accidentally shaved enough off that I had to see it through. So far, my wife wants it back, my daughter doesn’t and my mother loathes it. My inclination is to grow it back, but I’m mulling it.
