  1. Excellent link roundup, as always

    I am so sad about Dolores O’Riordan. To The Faithful Departed was one of the first CDs I ever owned, and Dolores and her music gave me so many feelings, some of which I didn’t even understand until much later. Even though I haven’t listened to the music in a good long while, I feel a real loss in her passing at such a young age.

  2. Generations are being wiped out thru sexual liberty, hence why STIs & Stds is never discussed in the media, do you think ppl would be so careless if they were made aware? – that was the plan of the dark lords who own the BBC. Its called population control.
