    Young adults feel empowered by debt, new study says | Deseret News This is a bit scary to read.

    The most dangerous cities for pedestrians- MSN Money Living in the south, I'd have to agree that our metro areas aren't very people friendly. I met a man selling electric bicycles at the most recent health/wellness expo. Coolest bikes ever. I had to ask him... "you aren't from here are you?"...
