Superman's Burden

In the light of this week's past events in Paris, Beirut, and other places around the world , we here at The NYRD have been doing a lot of soul searching.

But once in a while I fancy a change.

Zachary Packard replied to John McKinney's discussion Is it wrong to like a girl three years younger
