Giving away out intelligence

Apparently, the upcoming TV series "Wanted" follows "terrorism experts and former U.S. military and intelligence officers as they mount their own searches for sought-after terrorism suspects." So, we're going to actively broadcast our position for searching out these criminals? Didn't we already learn about giving away positions with the Geraldo sand incident of '03? And where did they get these "terrorism experts and former US military and intelligence officers"? Are they retired? Given a hefty pay day? Or maybe laid off because of the economic downturn and now they turn to reality/docu TV for their services.

MWCC Implements "Snack System"

MWCC has implemented a new snack system. All snacks and sodas are $.50. We are using an honor system in regards to the money. There's a jar where you're expected to pay. All money will then go back to buying more snacks.

MWCC would like to offer free snacks and drinks to everyone who inhabits our creative space. If anyone would like to be the official MWCC snack and/or drink sponsor, please contact us.

Lucas Leyva, local filmmaker and Minister of the Interior & Founder of the Borscht Film Festival, buys the very first snack. So many options, including gum!

Fruit snacks, wise choice my friend.

Always good to see Miami on the big screen, whether for just a scene or the whole pic, it all helps the SoFla industry.
