Slow News day at the NYTimes

Yesterday's NYTimes had some delightful items in the Business section. First, there's a lengthy article about airplane boarding techniques. No, not a how-to for space pirates, but mathematical models on getting people in and out more efficiently. It appears that the Basque sheep-herding techniques are still the best. (Yes, the Basque sheep have boarding passes.)
Then there's an(other) article I didn't read, but I looked at the headlines and pictures. It's about an investor who would prefer to remain anonymous and behind the scenes. So of course they publish a picture they got of him from a synagogue bulletin or something and I'm guessing the rest of the article details every last bit of his life that he's been trying to keep a secret. Yay, journalism!
