A few weeks ago, Burger King put out an internet ad in which the company attempted to demonstrate the concept of “net neutrality” using their product. The premise was the store’s customers being told that if they were willing to pay a surcharge – up to $26 – they would receive their Whopper faster. Those unwilling to pay would have to wait, as much as 20 minutes in some cases.

Workers at a Denver McDonald's plan to strike and then demonstrate at the city's airport on Tuesday as part of a nationwide day of protests by fast-food employees to push for higher wages and union rights. While a strike is planned at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, the Service Employees International Union says workers won't try to disrupt operations at Denver International Airport. It says the goal is to hand out fliers to passengers and airport workers pushing for better working conditions there.

DENVER — Happy SNOWY Friday … We at The Colorado Statesman hope you’re enjoying the fast freeze. Lots of time to clean-up over the weekend. Some interesting stories in the news this morning, remarkable to see how the final days of the Obama administration are playing out here in Colorado. Whether it’s the last gasps of the war on coal, restrictions over gas and oil exploration or just watching who might (or should) be picked for top positions in a new Trump government. As we said … interesting. Of course, there are more anti-Trump protests in the works. The largest appears to be a MASSIVE national event planned for the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. More than 91,000 have already committed to attending to the January rally. Let’s do this thing!
