SILENCE CAN BE GOLDEN

  Hopefully, you've noticed I've been silent over the last month. No—I've not been busy trying to get on the Obamacare Website or recovering from cosmetic surgery. And preparing for the New York City Marathon has taken a back seat because—I have been diligently working [...]

SLOGGING NOT BLOGGING
