If you liked “Casino Royale” you’re going to love “Quantum of Solace.” Forget the weird title taken from an Ian Fleming short story. All you need to know is that Quantum is an international cabal of evil-doer’s much in the tradition of Smersh and Spectre. Its purpose is sinister and its immediate intent is to corner the market on that most precious of all terrestrial products, water. This politically correct plot point is a nod to global warming and the multiple shots of infinite vistas of dry, throat-choking sand drive home the message.

Implicit in the saying ?We?ll cross that bridge when we come to it,? is the assumption that the bridge will still be there if we can?t find a way to avoid it. With all the press coverage after the deadly tragedy of the unexpected collapse of the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis, people are getting a glimpse into the paradox that quantum theorists refer to as Schrödinger?s cat. Imagine a cat in an electrically-shielded, soundproof box, along with glass vial of hydrogen cyanide that has a hammer and sickle poised above it. The sickle is irrelevant, but the hammer is held in position by a latch that will release if it receives a radio signal from a Geiger counter that is also inside the box. The Geiger counter will send a signal whenever it is bombarded by the energetic alpha particles that will result from the nuclear disintegration of the polonium-210 atoms in the cat?
