And the prehistoric pinup is intentionally headless, proving that even before the mammoths went extinct, he wasn't looking at her eyes."

Two affluent suburbs had been using the frequencies for water tower monitoring and landscaping control. But when the grass started turning brown in city parks, they learned that three suburbs on the other side of town had just installed new police communications equipment that was blocking their sprinkler systems."
