  1. Looking at things going on in Prince George’s County lately is similar to the main reason(s) that I got the heck out of what at one time was referred to as the Heart of the Midwest, Sweethome of Blues, the place where I was Born, Chicago after my coming out of a coma and I guess being not “Woke” enough to where I’ve been kept outside struggling and economically challenged since after my having been through 20 State’s of confusion in a Land which they’ve taught me all my Life was supposedly Free, literally begging for Help since day one, and especially during that Covid-19 Global Pandemic watching countless characters who’ve contracted something Penicillin ain’t gonna get rid of, Junkie-Crack-Head low-life sellouts, and let’s Not forget about how many Millions flooding across the Southern Border right about now, pushing me somehow even further to the bottom of whatever list, if even is at this time?
