Short Takes

Light blogging today while we do some home decorating with the help of my folks, then lunch with friends.

The Situation in Mumbai: Hostages have been rescued from one hotel while military forces storm a Jewish center.

William Gibson: the playwright who gave us The Miracle Worker has died.

Paul Krugman: preventing the next crisis.
