Shelly Lorts, a girl after my own heart

Anybody catch Shelly Lorts's little slice of cynicism in Thursday's Barometer? You can read it here if you want, or just trust my synopsis: Attraction is physical, and people hook up with people of the same level of physical attractiveness.

Last night my man Sean was fuming about this! He come onto my show to whine about it in his usual, hypocritical romantic style, while I just threw out facts and statistics to back up my fellow pessimist, Ms. Lorts. It's just economics, brother Sean. What's the incentive for a hottie to get with a fugly? Doesn't compute.

You talk about personality, but there are plenty of hot guys and girls with great personality. Zooey Deschanel doesn't have to step down to your level to get her intellectual jollies. Why do you think God let us invent alcohol if not to blur the otherwise cold, precise eyes of our physical betters? You just have to picture the incentive structures, baby!

Anyway, I'm going to try to get Shelly Lorts to become a regular contributor on my fantastic show, The Ministry of Love. If she's sane and can't make a midnight time slot, I guess I'll let her do a Manbots segment if Sean can motivate his lazy College-of-Business butt enough to ask her. Check out the rest of Shelly Lorts's musings on her blog, Landing on Venus, or just read the Barometer like a good kid should.
