Consumer Information Center
The Consumer Information Center Web site tries to have a good time while getting out the good word. The site largely consists of no-nonsense consumer pamphlets, but the "multimedia extravaganza" lets users "select a decade, get down with your bad self, and groove" on videos of TV commercials from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Online publications cover everything from
computers and funerals to exterminating Japanese beetles. Those who prefer paper copies can buy them at the
CIC shop most cost 50 cents.
