Kentucky Fried Chicken is taking steps to ensure the security of its secret recipe. That's good news--we wouldn't want anyone else making that junk and inflicting it on an unsuspecting public. Popeye's, anyone?
Cities are trying and failing to generate "small town charm." If you want a hint why, visit the article and take a look at the picture. Sorry, putting up a building that resembles any other office building in a parklike setting will not help your city get small town charm. For the genre-challenged, that's called "yet another nondescript office building like you see in 10000 other suburban settings." If you want "small town charm," try "adequate on street parking, lighting, and sidewalks." It's a lot cheaper, and a lot more effective.
St. Paul merchants discover that the promised $148 million windfall for the city from the GOP convention didn't exactly pan out as expected.

Hopefully voters remember this boondoggle at election time, as the "thinking" of civic boosters isn't exactly up to snuff.
