This introductory article is to state I have thrown my hat into the ring officially. The knee jerk reaction involved several Mexicans, a few mag drills, and a case of Dexpan.

If the pen is indeed mightier than the sword, I shall now begin to sharpen my pen.
You come home from work and plop down on your sofa, search tirelessly for the remote and tune into your local news. Sports scores, weather, a kids lemonade stand is raising money for disabled animals of disabled veterans, CAPITAL crimes. What about the stabbing in your neighborhood that you weren’t told about because an undermanned police force did not deem it an absolute necessity to investigate?
In this political hemisphere, it should come as no surprise that crimes committed in economically downtrodden neighborhoods go primarily unnoticed, unreported, and the world keeps turning. Ethel turning one-hundred will probably make it to your screen. Pablo killed for his sneakers and seven bucks, probably won’t.
