Fans of lawyers and the service they provide (count me in) always look forward to Law Day. Traditionally close to early May, Law Day helps cement the important connection between members of the public, attorneys, judges and the rule of law.

And this year is no exception. Like last year, the State Bar of… [read post]

The Pueblo Chieftain reported Saturday that state Senator Larry Crowder, R-Alamosa, had entered the “juicy fruit argument” at the State Capitol. Apparently, Colorado lawmakers are pushing a bill that would name the Palisade peach as Colorado’s official state fruit, but Crowder said that he would attempt to add Rocky Ford cantaloupe into HB1304, which was introduced in the House by Rep. Angela Williams, R-Denver. Clearly a well-read person, Crowder told the Chieftain that in… [read post]

Barry Estabrook wrote for OnEarth and Reader’s Digest Magazines: The Dangers in Our Food Supply Are Worse Than You Think As Barry correctly points out – Foodborne illnesses are escalating in the United States, and it’s not because of a few unwashed spinach leaves. Foul conditions, lax regulations, and too few inspectors are threatening our safety.

A major crime that is becoming more and more common is that of credit card fraud. Earlier this year, two individuals were arrested in the Chicago area by the United States Secret Service’s Chicago Electronic Crimes Task Force on charges of credit card fraud. The two men in this case did not do any fancy computer hacking, but were able to obtain credit card information, which they then used to purchase electronics. Once the purchases were made, they had the electronics shipped to empty… [read post]
