An Easter wish of sorts (and defending the faith)

This is a year when Easter and Passover converge more or less. So it’s probably as good a time as any for this post. Full Disclaimer–four days out of seven I consider myself Christian on some level. I was fully invested in the faith last decade until my congregation blew up, and a good sermon […]

DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE FARKING WEATHER!!

As I type this, we here in Brooklyn are ‘enjoying’ (pardon the usage) temperatures a good 20 degrees F below normal for this time of year.
