This morning's Omaha Weird Harold has a front-page item about the City installing free wiffy hotspots around town. It may be time for you to reconsider the options on the buggy-whip plant.

Any information about how the City plans to solve the problem of their citizens using compromised PCs via their WiFi hotspots around town?

Not even any word on how they will pay for it, what with a number of expensive vote getters^W^Wcivic projects having spent the available money a couple of times.

But that is not really a new problem--the State of Iowa has (some time ago) equipped the highway rest areas and there are enough Starbucks around that you wonder why the City needs to do anything.
