Three Blind Mice

Reese, Mara and the Media.  Three Blind Mice.  I have varying degrees of contempt for all of them right now.  I just got finished listening to the press conferences for both of them and it was positively insipid. Contempt is not a healthy emotion.  I try to be objective and analytical.  It is really hard […]

Overall, it is far worse. There has been exactly ONE Reese draft […]
