 (Read part 1 HERE.)

Written by John Biver

In our first post we quoted from Fay Voshell’s recent article, “The Little Hand,” words that should stir everyone on the political right into action. Voshell’s post is political writing at its best, and in my view — it is political writing as art.… Continue Reading
