I am just so pleased… to be the first one to break this vitally important story to St. Blog’s. This is… worthy of Relapsed Catholic. That’s how great a story it is. Of course, the guy *does* look a lot like Greg Popcak. I wonder if this is the Mercedes Principle interpreted in a whole [Read More...]
