Before logging in, I always check out the SciAm listings on the right side of the screen. To my utter dismay, I saw an obituary for Dr. Wheeler. A true giant has fallen.

That is very sad. I picked up a book not but a few weeks ago that he and Edwin Taylor collaborated on. Exploring Black Holes; Intro to GR.

Those are great links, Rob. My apologies that I was unaware of them. I don't visit the 'Beyond the Standard Model' thread or read blogs. Very nice coverage.
