Progress Report

I have completed fan pages for Shorty and As NOT Seen on TV on FaceBook.  Woo hoo! I inquired about a class I was advised to take to start a TV show.  I pray to have that going by April depending on the class and topics covered.  I already have the title. GoShorty TV is […]

OK, I’m Sick

I was checking my updates from Every Block Chicago when I ran across this story about a 17 year old having sex with an 8-year-old child.  I cannot worry about grammatical errors as I write this; I can only pray through the tears that are falling.
