Keynoter/Reporter Circling the Drain?

I saw this story in the Keynoter/Reporter misinformation rag.  Standard Keys skulduggery – newsworthy but not all that surprising.  Hell, our government officials do worse on a regular basis and nobody gives a damn. Anyway, here was the most interesting … Continue reading
