“I recently read in Mail Call all the concern about the music festival downtown and type of people it attracted, and the option of having a Christian music festival with no alcohol being served.

I recently figured out that if you get one of those annoying robo-telemarketer calls, pushing the #2 button on your phone—in most cases—automatically removes you from their call list. You don’t have to wait for the aural prompt.
