Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number accepted.
- Pillow nudges sleepers when they begin to snore (Nick Lavars, gizmag) Will this save some marriages?

Well maybe he doesn't play the saxophone or clarinet as well as Alan Greenspan or have studied in the same Julliard class as Stan Getz, which might leave Furman deficient in the credentials department.
Today we have 13 articles listed and discussed 'behind the wall'.
