A better response to "G's" dilemma

Hi G. Your question has struck a nerve in our little community. Our response left a lot to be desired. I should pretend that your question was never read on the podcast. Things for me would be a lot easier if I could. I have quit the inner circle, the Read More

Keyboard Humanitarians Save the Homeless. Again.

On the Ignominious End of Anthony Stokes
