The fake and the fury

Hard work pays the bills

The Way I See It by Don West I hate to tell you, “I told you so.”  I did, or at least I tried to tell the education system that there was something terribly wrong.  Back in 1964, against my wishes, I enrolled in college (Mom wanted me to go) and the first thing that I […]
