News I could have done without

In his review of 102 Minutes about what happened inside the towers on 9/11, James B. Stewart tells us:

. . . [the authors] suggest that not all the people who leapt from the upper floors of the towers did so of their own volition; some were pushed by those desperate for their place by a window and a breath of air.

In 1981, Ted Mooney wrote a book called "Easy Travel to Other Planets," where he proposed a new illness called information disease. People afflicted would dash out into the street raving from an overdose of media accounts of misery and chaos.

I would write more but I feel the need to run outside now.
