Let’s Dance – March Madness 2018

Break out your dancing shoes.  March Madness 2018 is here.  Beginning Thursday, the mania will commence.  America's productivity will falter.  Attention spans will lapse.  Water cooler talk will include analysis of Virginia's "Packline" defense, whether Kentucky is the most dangerous team in the tournament, Villanova's relatively easy path to the Final Four, and so much…

Guns: Can America Finally Address this Epidemic?

Already in 2018, there have been more than a dozen school shootings in the United States.  We are only in March. In November 2017, a little over a month after the Las Vegas shooting, we asked "Where is the Outrage?  A Call to End America's Gun Epidemic."  Even though almost 60 people died in that…

Update – Verizon Fios and the 30 Day Internet Policy

Two weeks ago, PolisPandit wrote an article about Verizon Fios and the 30 Day Internet Policy.  The article described Verizon's draconian "Policy" that requires consumers to pay for an entire month of internet service even if they cancelled one day into the next billing cycle.  In our particular case, Verizon demanded we pay a full…
