WTC, Bloomberg, and Lessig

+ Purdue scientists have done an extensive simulation of one of the 9/11 impacts. The video is on YouTube: Scientists simulate jet colliding with World Trade Center. Their press release. (And, Jim: you must watch it.)

+ Glowing article on Bloomberg's reign. Then he leaves the Repubs. Run coming up?

+ Finally, the latest from Lawrence Lessig. I'm a distant admirer. He's switching his career focus from intellectual property to combating the unfair influence that money has on our system.

Sounds great. Not sure you can build a culture on the creation of wealth and then de-emphasize it in politics. But maybe he'll find a way.

Of course, I'm oversimplifying. Read his post if you want to know more.
