Markets in everything

For some reason (psychoanalyze me if you wish), I find this one especially awful:

For her 17th wedding anniversay Jeanette Yarborough wanted to do something special for her husband.  In addition to planning a hotel getaway for the weekend, Ms. Yarborough paid a surgeon $5,000 to reattach her hymen, making her appear to be a virgin again.

"It’s the ultimate gift for the man who has everything," says Ms. Yarborough…

This is reported to be one of the plastic surgery industry’s fastest-growing segments, and yes that is in the United States.

The article is from the 15 December Wall Street Journal, p.A1.

Next thing you know, there will even be a market in Ron Artest.
