The State of the Unions

Filed in National by on September 26, 2007 16 Comments

A Donviti Movie Review

Filed in Uncategorized by on September 25, 2007 2 Comments

I don’t go to the movies often.  I’d rather spend the money on a dime bag a six pack. But the chance came about this weekend and someone suggested Superbad.
