Re: A foreign place worth going Art

There are a great many people on this earth that The Baron does not wish to see nude. The vast, vast majority, in fact.

Re: Sunday morning

Re: E-cigs..not so safe after all?

The city of Chicago has already banned their use in all the places where regular smoking is banned. NYC too. The writers of those Blu commercials might want to rethink their "Take back your freedom" slogan.
