What is it about yard fowls and party hacks that so fascinates Rick Wayne?
Ihave often expressed my admiration for Rick Wayne’s tenacity and commitment to whatever grabs his fancy. Still I have difficulty understanding his perverse fascination with the yard fowls, hacks and sycophants that infest Facebook, their poverty of spirit altogether exposed.
