A few days ago, NBC news reported that a Long Island mother and daughter -- frustrated that the daughter, who has celiac disease, cannot eat any of the Girl Scout cookies that she sells -- hit upon the idea of starting a petition to be presented to the Girl Scouts, asking them to provide gluten free cookies as an option. It's about time! Gluten causes health problems for about six percent of the population, according to a recent New York Times article (citing the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland). I'd love to interview the mother and daughter who started the petition; if any of you savvy gluten free readers have a connection in that regard, please contact me in a comment to this blog post or in a contact form on the site! Oh, yes. Picture above has nothing to do with the Girl Scouts or cookies -- but I thought these chairs looked a bit like those you'd find around a fancy campfire!
New York Times to charge for Web content above a certain number of articles viewed per month, reports FishbowlNY, citing a Bloomberg report

How much will the Times charge? Less than $20 per month, as per the above sources. However, the Times article on the subject did not state a price. Web users will be able to view a certain number of articles free per month, according to the Times; but, above a certain number of articles there will be a flat monthly fee.
It's about time; I'm all for journalists getting paid for their Web content (this site is still free: enjoy!) Photo to left is not that of the Times, FishbowlNY, or Bloomberg -- it's just a pretty shot licensed by Creative Commons!
