Government Spending and Linear Algebra

Interesting bits of new about Congress, particularly the ladeling out of pork and gravy in the emergency military spending bill. (Free registration required, I think).

For those of us with math minors, its also interesting to read about the "best connected" Congressmen, and read that the determination was made using "eigenvalue centrality."

Ah, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Takes me back to my days in Linear Algebra.

That is all.
