COLORADO SPRINGS - Next time NATO officials say they're doing a lockdown, the folks in the luxury Broadmoor neighborhood will take them seriously.

Nice article, at least someone was happy:

DeYoung isn't alone. A nearby Radio Shack sold out of 12-volt batteries, which are often used for garage-door openers, Friday morning. A new shipment sold out in 90 minutes.

And the part about getting cars fro the officials attending the meeting: Government officials told him at least one diplomat left a previous conference when he didn't get the color car he wanted, he added.

Finally, Hayton called Red Noland Cadillac, which called General Motors. Thirty $46,000 Cadillac DeVilles were made in Michigan specifically to cart the NATO dignitaries around. After the conference winds up today, the bronze- colored cars with chrome wheels will be offered for sale across the Front Range.
crazy, good for GM, but crazy

Humm wonder if it's the "rolling code technology" that only needed a slight frequency "bump" to cause all of the openers to stop working, cause the code is now wrong.
