Prussian Blue Going a Bit Green

Okay, okay, I know I promised that the last post on Prussian Blue was going to be the final one, but that was 7 years ago so cut old Murdoc some slack.

Hmmm…Let’s think about that…

Reagan shooter wants more time outside hospital The man who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan is asking to spend more time outside a Washington mental hospital, but a government lawyer says John Hinckley’s request is premature and that he recently lied to cover up the fact he looked at books on Reagan and presidential […]

No Sty for the Pigs
