A Cheap Hair Plug

I feel like my posts have been a little heavy lately.  And the news has been even heavier.  In fact, I just spent the better part of the last hour drafting a soap boxy sort of post about the recent shooting, and right before posting, thought better of it.  No one needs to hear my […]
