In Memoriam

Lou Mascitello 1956-2020 To anyone who has ever read the essays or listened to Political QRM podcasts you are probably aware that Lou, my co-host, my friend, a person whom I considered a brother had passed away on April 28, 2020.

A Corporation In The ‘Hood.

In MY, (NEVER), humble opinion…I have NOTHING against ANY person who, through their own intellect, effort, dedication and a little luck becomes a millionaire, billionaire or trillionaire. None. Whatsoever. Keeping in mind that, where millions go, scandal follows. Look, I don’t CARE who they may or may not have slept with, are sleeping with or
