Morning Links for April 2, 2013
Scouring the internets so you don't have to.
A mix of hard news and guilty pleasure reads, this is what we're reading on this cold-yet-sunny morning. Now you can, too.
- According to the A.V. Club Milwaukee, there are rumblings of a trust trying to revive the Grand Warner Theatre (212 W. Wisconsin Ave.). The same trust successfully revived a theater in Minnesota, so they're hopeful about the Grand Warner, citing its mostly cosmetic damages.
- The Journal Sentinel reports that there ain't no mountain high enough for the price of Midwestern farmland, including Wisconsin's, which is selling for up to $10,000 per acre.

- A judge ruled that the reselling of lawfully purchased digital files is copyright infringement, Wired says. And for now, most of the book publishing industry sighed with relief.
