Click here to read the online version of the newspaper article about medical debt that I was recently featured in. There’s even a link to Effugium in the body of it, so I’m quite pleased with that. Continue reading Here’s the story I was interviewed for
Every once in awhile I’ll check out one of the thousands of outrageously stupid right-wing links that are shared and believed without question by friends or family daily on social media. It should be funny, but it isn’t. It’s batshit insane, is what it is. And sad, and frustrating. People are so entrenched in this brainwashed mindset that they’ll believe anything that confirms their own … Continue reading It took all of five minutes…
I might say or do something from time to time that could easily fall under the banner of douchebag behavior. But I’m aware of it. I know I’m being a douche. I’m self-aware.
