You might want to avoid buying anything from General Mills.
The food company General Mills added language to its website to alert customers that they cannot take legal action against the company if they download coupons, enter a contest or connect with it in other ways.

Another example of why every police officer in Amercia should be wearing a camera (or within view of a camera) during every shift they work.
Updated: A seemingly routine suppression hearing in a suburban Chicago courthouse last month took an unexpected dramatic turn when video from a police car was introduced that disproved the testimony of five police officers. They had said Joseph Sperling was arrested after officers who pulled him over in a traffic stop smelled marijuana, searched the vehicle and found nearly a pound in a backpack lying on the back seat of his car. But the Glenview...

#dropdropbox   Yep:  I closed it down.  You should to.  With someone like this on their board, there is simply no way they will respect the privacy of your files.

I wouldn't normally advocate for a single company like this, but, what they're doing is right.  This is a small tech company making money off of something, but, at the same time, protecting your right to free over the air (OTA) content.  Please take a moment and check it out.

Sounds to me like your local city council should consider becoming a gigabit city.  :)

Best Italian food in Longmont. I grew up in this neighborhood and this place has been here for decades. The parents sold the place to their kids a few years ago so it's a true local neighborhood Italian restaurant in every sense of the world. They make their own pasta on site. The owner even had the spaghetti machine custom designed to get just the right width for the noodles (I know this because he brought the custom made part out to show me when I asked about the noodle size). It's not a fancy place, (yea, they use iceberg lettuce in some of their salads) it's just great neighborhood Italian like you'll find all over larger cities like NY or Boston. Either you like it or you don't. Personally, I love it.
