    So some French guy climbed the Times building today with a banner saying global warming kills as many in a week as 9/11. He's arrested.

    I get home from work and go look for the link to post here, and some other dude has just finished climbing it with no apparent purpose.

    Fifty-two stories. No support.

    The Times prevents the architect & director of security from speaking with its own reporters:

    The skyscraper, on Eighth Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets, is the work of the Italian architect Renzo Piano, who declined to be interviewed on Friday, saying that Mr. Golden had specifically instructed him not to speak to the newspaper’s reporters. Mr. Golden acknowledged this, saying, “I’ve told Renzo, I don’t think there’s any good that comes from this kind of publicity.”

    John Garrity, an employee of First New York Partners who is director of security for The New York Times Building, also declined to comment. He said he had been instructed not to speak by executives of the Times Company
