He once sued his tutors, alleging that they owed him money for everything he had taught them. He won.

An Oct. 7, 2017 Politico article is entitled: “Trump Is the Star of These Bizarre Victorian Novels: And the Internet is losing its mind.” The one problem with the headline is the expression “losing its mind.” I refer you, in this context, to the YouTube video entitled: Keys to our Past – Language & Stigma Similarly, […]
