South City Confessions: Appreciate what you have, every single day

Maybe it’s the fact that more than 30 people were gunned down in mass shootings last week. Maybe it’s the fact I drove a guy who had just put his sister on life support this morning. Maybe it’s the fact the world seems to shit itself one day and wipe its ass the next. Let … More South City Confessions: Appreciate what you have, every single day

South City Confessions: Don’t look up! In a world without Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg lost nearly $6 billion today. Say it again with me, but with a Dr. Evil meets Donald Trump line reading… A BILLION DOLLARS! That’s a lot of money.
