Recognizers

Who do you think I am? the idealist or the realist, the teacher or the student, who has the lesson to share? the politician or the rebel, the bass or the treble, dropping knowledge is a sweet science, whether it comes from the street corner, the classroom, the backyard, or the Baby Boom, it is […]
