The movie “Kids”…

One of the 8 papers I wrote in the past 2 weeks was a reflection exercise for my “Youth at Risk” course on the movie “Kids“. If you haven’t seen this, it’s as close to child pornography as it gets. People actually wrote letters to our seminary president to not allow our prof. to show […]

For the geeks…

You type the number via the client, it calls you locally, then calls your other party locally, and the conferences you together, phone to phone, for free! For those […]
