A War Begun…

War.  Over Religion, Land, Money, Freedom… and free baby carriers, apparently.  A war.  I can’t describe it any other way, an epic battle, two sides clashing in cyberspace both wanting the same thing… free fluff.  One one side, the BWI of Greater Austin Discussion Group (that’s us) and on the other side… Sneaky Corn Ninjas […]
