Jeb Bush made it official today: he wants to be president.

There’s a big rally down in Miami — campaign posters, the whole smash. 

Also, as it turns out, a little digital fun.

The New York Times’ Jeremy Bowers noticed on now-candidate Bush’s website that the JavaScript of the announcement includes a synopsis of the movie “Die Hard.”

Yeah, that “Die Hard.”

Why?

No idea.

Marketplace is on a mission.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
