For Haught or For Naught?

From booze soaked New Year's nights our country's collective hangover was cured by the Inauguration. After a month of resolutions and very real recession, we wanted nothing more than to come up with a list of the highs and lows for January--not including global warming. This is the result of our brilliant brainstorming and bickering.

Haught:
1) Bacon Bits
2) Philip Roth
3) Problem Solving
4) Atlantic City
5) Speed Walking
6) Street Meat
7) Black Ops *This is a Brooklyn Brewery blend
8) Hot Toddies
9) Trojans
10) Coin Collecting

Naught:
1) Peanut Butter
2) Great books into shitty movies
3) Leo & Kate
4) Tax Season
5) The MTA (L train not running + posterboy ambushed = fuck you)
6) Pigeons
7) Gold Unitards
8) Winter that's actually cold
9) Octuplets
10) Billionaires

What do you think? Did we nail it or put a nail in our Pompculture coffin? We've challenged the shutter happy at photodrifting to capture images that illustrate our list. The best results of their flashbulbs will be posted. For more Haught & Naught check out Pomp & Circumstance does politics when our print issue hits the stands later this month.

It's not just the L, on the weekends I don't think a single service runs on the line it's supposed to. It takes hours to get somewhere instead of just the usual not that long.

all these places now have the "octuplet fallout" article, and it's about the impreciseness of fertility docs

I can't for the life of me imagine what could possibly be naught about peanut butter.
