  I Have Seen The Light August 2006
A .10 gauge barrel full of sarcasm, irony, facts, and foolishness in answer to the local and national hyper-conservative glassy-eyed zombies who see no problem with torture, poverty, a police state, and an unending state of war. A long, somewhat sloppy rant – amusing if nothing else.
