    Alex Jones Where Art Thou?

    I used to have a friend who loved Alex Jones. If you know who Alex Jones is, then right about now you are probably thinking, ‘What was wrong with your friend?’ My friend had serious mental illness and is dead now. But that’s not the point. The point is that this week Alex Jones and […]
