A shout-out to my friend Jason Bortz

Jason Bortz is a good friend, a driven and ambitious actor of stage and film, and a man with an enormous heart that would encompass Africa and its sufferings if it could.

Bortz is in the news today … in the Auburn Journal.

But what you really need to know about Jason, whose film company Aestus Films, has produced some flashy, philosophical short films, is that he’s involved in THIS: Scratching the Surface, the short documentary he made about the work that people do there is a deeply affecting glimpse of present-day heroes … little Davids taking on the Goliath of AIDs in Africa.

I wish Jason the best in all of his endeavors, in all of his acting ambitions, and especially in his aims to use his talents to change the world.

    I’ve repaired it to what I MEANT to say. Always go by what I MEAN to say, not by what I actually SAY. :)

    Hey Jeff, just wondering, was there supposed to be a link on the word “THIS”?
