There's more than one way to remove tattoos:

December 12, 2005
It's not known when the practice of tattooing began, but Egyptian mummies dating back to 1300 B.C. have shown evidence of blue tattoo marks. Today, for many reasons, people are having tattoos removed. Here's how: Dermabrasion: A small portion of the tattoo is sprayed with a solution that freezes the area.

Libraries book on Plainfield duo's automation software:

September 19, 2005
Rob Cullin and Rodd Cutler thought there must be a way to adapt their knowledge of factory-automation technology to libraries, even though the two industries appeared worlds apart. Turns out, automation is automation, Cullin says. By developing the right software, just about anything can be automated and made more efficient. Cullin, who had worked with Cutler for years, was downsized by the company they worked for about five years ago, but wanted to keep his hands in technology. "I had...

September 19, 2005
Richard Cherry knows the 30-minute delivery concept isn't new. Pizzerias have been promising to deliver pies to the door in 30 minutes or less for years.

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now.

If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.
