  • Thank You ABC

    I find it ironic that on the same night that ABC is about to air a White House exclusive promo, something which I think borders on a wrong-headed move (understandable, predictable, but still wrong-headed), I am about to praise them for something completely different. The fact that I am about to praise ABC […]

  • Ceili Rain at Joyful Noise III
