Why Doesn't Anybody Really Care Anymore?

Dear Editor, Okay, this may come off as a bit of a rant & maybe it is, but I’m not mad at anybody in particular. Hell, I’m really not even mad, just sad! The lack of empathy in the overwhelming majority of human beings saddens me. Yes, it does pi...

Go Ask Jo: 6/9/2021

Go Ask Jo: 6/2/2021
