Internet. This has to be the one invention that has revolutionized everything in the world.

An Open Letter to the Devolution Cabinet Secretary

Greetings ma’am. First of all, let me just say I was pretty excited when the president raided the private sector for brilliant minds to run Government Ministries. It was a breath of fresh air.

My Dress My Choice

Having not written for over 8 months now, it saddens me that this had to be the blog post that ended that drought. In this century, we have men who can publicly declare their intent on stripping women in public. Being a liberal society, the Bill of Rights gives you leeway in what you can…
