Maybe somebody should look into this

A journal published by Elsevier, one of the largest academic publishers in the world, has apparently run 322 papers by the journal's editor.

I write "apparently" because I haven't checked the claim. But I can, however, verify the claim in the post that the last issue of the journal contains five articles by the journal's editor. That, alone, seems really weird.

"The most expensive apartment on the market in New York [City]"

An 8300-square-foot penthouse on the 78th floor of the Time Warner Center was recently listed with an asking price of $65 million. The article has a floorplan. (New York Observer, 11/13.)

(Oh, if you're seriously interested, you should know that maintenance and taxes alone total almost $1000 per day.)

And if you don't want to live in the Big Apple, here's what about the same asking price--$70 million--will get you in San Francisco. (With gorgeous pictures.)
