laptop with red "FAKE" across news website on screen I purchased my first personal computer (PC) in the early 1980s. It’s hard to believe that was almost forty years ago.

  2. J. Davy Crockett III

"Nothing is worthy of respect. Nothing is sacred. There are no absolutes. Humankind must make its own way." This widely held belief or viewpoint is an atheistic, materialistic approach to life.
