Two Pussy Riot Members Released From Prison During Amnesty

The juvenile response to this story is, “They said pussy!” However, the bigger issue is, freedom of speech vs. freedom of religion. In America, where most of US live 😉 They probably would’ve simply been slapped on the wrist, or the bare bottom in this case, and given a ticket.

This week I’m announcing the first book that feels to me like it fits with the 300 words a day style, without consisting of old posts.
