It hardly seemed worth the trouble. Obviously, I’m in the minority, as the site claims more than 25 million active users worldwide, who share movies, music, video games and other copyrighted works via torrent files.

MAPS threat lingers

Issues remain and voters react after questions were raised about constitutionality of MAPS 3 projects.


News

Tim Farley
Vowing to avoid a political battle, Oklahoma City attorney David Slane contended this week that his research into the constitutionality of the 2009 MAPS 3 measure is aimed at protecting the public.
