It’s not reasonable that bad people get away with horrible crimes while others who try to bring justice to the helpless are taken advan...Read more of this blog post »
I recently tried to listen to Henry Rollins on Joe Rogan’s podcast, because I usually find the guy inspiring, but something about this discussion with him irked me.

I used to love Mother’s Macaroons, but I noticed my wife hadn’t bought them in ages. I put them on the grocery list but she came back saying she couldn’t find them.
