Broad Street Media

Hitting the wall and hitting it hard (random thoughts about this past week)

bricks.jpgFor the past week I’ve been traveling for work and I’ve quickly found that trying to update this blog while on the road is extremely difficult. I’m sure most of you who actually read this blog have noticed it too, since most of what I’ve written is garbage and just out of necessity to get something on the page each day.

If I wasn’t lazy I would delete the Jeremy Affeldt/City of Philadelphia article published yesterday. It’s garbage and not funny.

We know best,” Corsetti said, dollar signs spinning through his sunken, sallow eyes.
