I have been slacking with my Thursday Thirteen posts recently, partly because I have been swamped at work and partly because I do not want to give either of the Democratic candidates the patented Sparky Duck kiss of death.
So, I have been reading Consumerist faithfully this week, getting my news and the like. Its actually been better than the news on TV, because it actually talks about stuff that is affecting us.
So 13 stories from this week...
1.How some bars in the North are getting around a smoking ban
2.Comcast being Comcast and affecting your credit while they are at it.
3.Is your vet ripping you off? Yes usually
4.Banks sure should be not for profit, since they make no profit
5.Comcast is one of the worst in the country
6.Verizon will be with you sometime between Monday & Friday
7.I need damned Hybrid
8.Phew, the Duck family is not the only ones who love Credit Cards
9.Somebody that sells Nano missed this whole recession thing
10.Lets all vote for Comcast
11.You may wanna think about dumping your Wachovia stock
12.Countrywide is having a fire sale
13.Phishing calls can be funny, when the phishee fights back
