Route 9 reconstruction complete

I was pleased to read in Saturday's paper that the Route 9 reconstruction project through Peekskill had been completed. I was a bit surprised as the project had been ongoing for a couple of years and I would have guessed had a while to go. But when I drove up there it was indeed finished and looking pretty good. Well except for the construction zone signs which haven't been taken down yet.

Benoit Mandelbrot RIP

Benoit Mandelbrot died last week. I had lunch with him a few times when I worked at IBM and found him pleasant enough although I could see why some of my colleagues thought he was a bit full of himself.
