What could go wrong?

March 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Because I apparently haven’t quite mastered the Art Of Making An Ass Of One’s Self, the Universe decided to present another opportunity for me to test my skills.  I passed.  With flying colors.

I want to do this right.  The i’s need dotted and the t’s need crossed.  God knows I don’t need to be years into this project and learn that I’m getting sued by someone for using their name.  Since this is a true story and involves real-life heros, I feel it’s appropriate to give them […]
