Explaining Neutrino Speeding

Lubos has a long article outlining one approach to explaining neutrino speeds that doesn't quite collapse standard physics. I won't attempt to summarize, except to say that it involves slow photons, Sieberg, Witten, and non-commutative geometry, and that Lubos notes that it can't quite fit all the experimental data - I think he means the Supernova 1987A data.

Clearly, Lubos is still a skeptic about the result, but he and other people are already thinking about the meaning of the experiment turning out to be solid.
