Actually, EastBeach, the blue laser is needed to make the white light of LED's. As mentioned in many other articles, the blue was hardest to develop, but the lack of the blue to combine with the other colors that were already developed (remember when the only LED's were red?) was the reason that white LED's were slow to come on the market. Blue lasers are not just for Blu-Ray!

As I read the Consumer Reports article, In-N-Out beat Habit by two points. What did I miss? Or whjat did the writer of this article miss?

We saw it and loved it! It's the first production in the Ensemble's new home, the "New Vic" theater. If you enjoy truly good theater, outstanding music and lyrics, a very professional cast, and a beautiful new addition to the Santa Barbara downtown scene, run (don't walk!) to the Ensemble and get your tickets!!

The seats are terrifically comfortable - and there is plenty of room between the rows for crossing legs, for long-legged folks, etc.
The Ensemble is having a number of tours for folks to see the New Vic and the insides of the theater - call them and come visit!
Remember the single bathrooms in the Alhecama? No more!!
And the same design firm that did the New ViIc also did the redone Hahn Hall - an excellent facility! And the New Vic cost so much less than the Granada!
Kudos to Johnathan Fox. Derek Westen, and all the many people who helped bring the New Vic to a reality for the next generation of theater goers!

How could you possibly print this with a straight face and not include Toma? Toma is the best new restaurant to arrive on the Santa Barbara scene in years!

Hmm - you must be seeing the wrong doctors. My wife and I have seen three new doctors this year, and all have accepted our Medicare without question. Note that if you decide to drop Part B, you will not be able to re-enroll until the next general enrollment period, and you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty to boot.

There were more than a few of us who walked out of this film because it was totally unintelligible. With such a heavy dialect, why were there no subtitles? Even "Downton Abbey" CD's have subtitles!
