The United States birth rate has dropped for the second year running, and it is now at its lowest point in over 100 years. Most people agree that this is do to the financial collapse and recession. The basic idea being that all the men are unemployed and can’t afford the obligatory dinner and a movie. Therefore, people have been having less sex and, in turn, less babies. Yet another theory is that men are unemployed, so they can’t afford enough drinks to get woman schwasted enough to make some bad decisions. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably a little bit of both. Either way it’s a gosh darn tragedy. Lucky for us, this is not a problem we have at the Chronic Mansion.
