I don’t subscribe to any cable, satellite or Internet Protocol television at all. Many other Millenials like me also do not subscribe to any pay television. BUT, initially, […]
Chapter 2: When you peer into the abyss, the abyss peers back.
My father was (for most of his life) a very happy, optimistic fellow. He was generally a happy man, happy, but realistic. As a young man he was given a Bible, probably after being confirmed as a member of his church. On the first page of the Bible he wrote, “When you are born, […]
