Pretty indepth article on the evils of, among other things, stock buybacks.
A thriving middle class is the cause of growth. The middle class creates rich people -- not the other way around

Wow.  Google's a cell phone company!  $20 mo for phone/text.  $10 mo per gig of data, pay as you use it.  Nexus 6 handset only though.  Still: Sign me up.

Unbelievable.  Don't buy a car from these makers:

General Motors Company
BMW Group
FCA US LLC
Ford Motor Company
Jaguar Land Rover
Mazda
Mercedes-Benz USA
Mitsubishi Motors
Porsche
Toyota
Volkswagen Group of America
Volvo Cars North America
One of the inherent rights of owning a vehicle is the ability to get on one’s backside — a wrench in one hand and a grease rag in the other, and just tinker to your little heart’s desire. Since the vehicle was invented, it’s been an important facet within the community of gearheads. General Motors

How can a police force have a separate "Bill of Rights" from the general population? To protect them from liability for illegal acts maybe? Doesn't make sense to me.

Police Officer 'Bill of Rights' Blamed for Baltimore’s Information Blackout in Case of Freddie Gray’...
Baltimore's mayor blamed Maryland's "Law Enforcement's Officers Bill of Rights" for the lack of transparency in the case of a 25-year-old black man who died in police custody.

Courthouse News Service

This Arizona sheriff, who clearly broke the law, is using the same legal wrangling that you'd see from a mob boss.

What's that tell you?

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.
