Here’s a sample of what [...]

It’s all connected, man!

Photographic proof! The Powers That Be are all in cahoots, and all corrupt!
Right out of camera range: big Hollywood producers, scions of the Corn industry, and Lord Voldemort (who works part-time for Corn as well! SO CONNECTED!!).

Meet the Sheriff

May 12th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 33 Comments

Recognize this guy?  He’s Leon Unczur and yesterday he celebrated his first year anniversary serving as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
