Post: April 27th, 2011: ERS-2011-04-27 #251 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2011-04-27 #251 Prize pack giveaway show today along with some great articles to cover a couple of which are shocking. Recording from our little podcasting factory from the Windy City, it’s again a week filled with rain. I appreciate the input many of you have given regarding items of concern and possible improvements for our industry. Keep them coming and never stop trying to make a difference. Together collectively we should be able to. I've got a few other soap box items to cover on the program today that I’m sure you’ll be interested in hearing. One is a code related item and the other is just pricing in general that came my way on purpose or perhaps not. I’ll let you be the judge on that.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
