The Black Swan

Been doing some hard core studies on probability theory here of late. Here is a great book that helps put the current credit crisis in persepctive.

I strongly recommend this book!

Yankee Stadium

Sad, sad, sad. The only reason to tear it down is money. I think it is a tragedy. Certainly Yankee management will tell you they MUST have a new stadium but, this is a sports temple!

This is one new thing that is not an improvement.

What a great movie. It has incredible special effects yet has a plot with twists and turns that keep you guessing. Will Smith has done it again, creating a sympathetic "everyman" movie persona ala classic movie stars.

The movie left me wondering, "How would I cope if I had superhuman powers?"

The movie has a feeling very much like "Superman Returns." It is a bit of a critique of our social angst that is anti-hero and a bit spoiled.
