It’s interesting that Puerto Rico’s economy pre-hurricane was in such bad shape considering this:

“To put things in perspective, Puerto Rico’s biopharma industry accounted for one-fourth of U.S. drug exports last year and nearly three-fourths of the island’s total exports, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Puerto Rico’s drug and device industry includes dozens of facilities that manufacture a variety of critical products such as cancer drugs, immunosuppressants and devices used in treating diabetes. Given that variety and the volume of drugs and devices Puerto Rico produces, the FDA has reason to be concerned about possible shortages.”

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Fatwa!

So, even with a vibrant Biopharma industry, Puerto Rico couldn’t make socialism work?

Sven -- sad news about Paladin Press. I wonder what the story is.

I think I mentioned earlier that Teh Older, Teh Younger, and I brewed up a batch of beer recently for a local homebrew competition. It was a “back to basics” competition so it provided a good impetus to get the gear together, craft a recipe, and make a batch. I was just hoping that the beer turned out good and that I’d get some useful feedback. Well, it turns out we took 6th place, getting beat out of the top 5 by only 0.3 points (out of a possible 50). That is much, much better than I expected and the feedback will allow the next batch to be even better.
