WRITTEN BY David Solway
You love him or you hate him, but you cannot deny he's changed the game of electoral politics.
Confessions of an indifferent guitar player.
Why not just tell the truth? Why indeed?
Even between the blasts, the dissonance remains.
Flexible, magnanimous, and forgiving, the Perfect Guitar Is not unlike the ideal wife.
How do you defeat an enemy in love with death?
