Stranded in New York and missing the Wooman, we occupy ourselves posing for the camera, going to the vet and blogging. Day in, day out.

The drive might have been legitimate, the consequences could be catastrophic.
Are you having trouble imagining the scene? Just picture a web-bed CIA with all its greed, corruption and lust for power, unleashing its abuse upon the Internet under the so called umbrella of Justice and drawing wide, arbitrary eraser strikes across
