We have all been watching the news with more horror and sorrow than usual lately. The riots in Ferguson, Missouri have hurt our collective soul in a way we have not seen since 9/11.
In all of the sadness, it is important to remember that there are many amazing people in Ferguson who love their town and see better days ahead. To that end, we want to salute the local library for doing all they can to show support for their community and help to mend the many wounds that are wide open right now.
There has been a lot of talk recently about the importance of net-neutrality and whether or not it’s something that should be regulated. So, we thought we might take this opportunity to explain the controversy and why the issue is important no matter your opinion.
