Under The Radar: Dead In The Dirt

Dead In The Dirt

In the end, I really respect the straight-edge movement. Not particularly the uber-evangelical guys, because they make it into a fundamentalist religion of sorts. “BE SxE OR DIE AND BURN IN HELL” is just too Pat Robertson to take seriously. The dudes and dudettes who actually live their beliefs and set a good example are […]
