I used to read Wil Wheaton’s blog all the time. I used to read a ton of other blogs more regularly. I need to start again. The world is shit so often that we forget to do the things we actually enjoy. In this entry, Wil talks about a used book he has in possession and […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

If people really want to help veterans, hijacking us for socially ignorant memes and transparent political talking points do NOT = actual support.
