Small Rebellion

I turned off all of the everything on FB. I opened the site, and immediately a pic swam to the top of my feed. It doesn’t matter who and what it was — all that matters is I looked at it, and I thought, in the manner of most FB users, probably: Wow. That makes me … More Small Rebellion

Who Watches the Watchers Who Are Watching (But Not During DINNERTIME)
