The Times' new Freakonomics blog just launched today, and boy did it come in with a bang! Steven D.

Don't worry, though: "Consider that posting them could be a form of public service: I presume that a lot more folks who oppose and fight terror read this blog than actual terrorists. So by getting these ideas out in the open, it gives terror fighters a chance to consider and plan for these scenarios before they occur." Okay, Steve! Hmm... we would start by making Maureen Dowd's content completely free to everyone on the Internet. That or just wait for a short yet intense rainstorm.
