it's often close to impossible for an organization built around an older technology to retool for a new, disruptive one because their cost structures just don't allow it.

It has been common for educated Israelis to think, and Israeli diplomats and American Jewish leaders to present, the settler community of Hebron as a kind of radical nuisance. Presumably, the settlers are a side-show of a defensive strategic policy, a touch of hubris gone wrong, a little understandible selfishness after centuries of self-effacement--anyway, a line that can be moved when the time is right. You think out from Hebron, and the holes in the common wisdom become obvious, well, certainly less abstract.

In memory of WGN's hideous Anime Eyes Goth-Girl animated logo experiment. I'm sorry, but you just can't sex up WGN, especially when you continue to show notihng but Cubs games and re-runs of Coach. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in the meetings where this was decided upon.

Imagine this scenario: in the near future, in some scrubby backwater, a dictator or terrorist leader tells his biological technician that he'd like a virus tailored to just kill members of a particular ethnic group. The virus should be 100% lethal and easily transmissible by air and water. In addition, the virus should be immune to all known anti-virals. Finally, the virus should be invisible to current detection methods, hardy, and easily weaponized and spread.

Apartheid South Africa had a very extensive biological warfare program, code-named Project Coast. Unlike South Africa's terminated nuclear weapons program, the status of Project Coast is now unclear. Pathogens remain unaccounted for, and there are indications that "research" is continuing. It is also known that many of the agents have ended up in private hands. Incredibly, these agents may be for sale to the highest bidders.

The scientists thought they might learn something useful about mouse contraception, but instead they had learned how to create a universally fatal virus. And this killer virus had been created via a very simple genetic manipulation, accessible to every country with a few PhD microbiologists. Imagine their surprise.

Self-described as a cross between a mechanical engineer and a choreographer, Arthur Ganson creates contraptions composed of a range of materials from delicate wire to welded steel and concrete. Most are viewer-activated or driven by electric motors. All are driven by a wry sense of humor or a probing philosophical concept. (I got a chance to see his work up close at MIT, and it was enthralling.)
