Back in London after an extended weekend in Bangor. Seeing as how Norn Iron was basically underwater the last few days, we decided the smartest thing to do was stay in and watch the Olympics, which was great. How quick would Usain Bolt have been if he had actually run the 100m as fast as possible rather than showboating at the end?
Two quick blogging plugs. First a good post on S&M that in part explores the question of taxing the super-rich. Short answer: superficially attractive, practically pretty pointless. Second a bit of bloggernomics from Tom Freeman, with graphs and everything (I have no idea how to do this on Blogger).
