Link roundup

1. Salt water shrimp farm in the middle of the desert in Las Vegas. Via.

2. Two conflicting posts I read yesterday - - A. All able adults work, so there's a growing job market for sophisticated assistants like yoga instructors, artisanal cheese makers, travel agents, etc (because people don't have time to do that stuff themselves anymore). B. Two income families will increasingly realize that it's foolish to work two jobs and give away the second salary in taxes, so they'll turn into one-income families. (My family came to that conclusion.)

3. A look at summer camps for rich kids - - well, specifically, a look at how rich kids increasingly arrive at summer camps by private plane. Via.
