Back from San Diego Comic Con!

All right! Back to the con!

So I would just like to say my thoughts are with those whose lives were affected. If you pray, pray for them. If you don’t, send good thoughts that way.

This isn’t a political thing. This is a real tragedy. Let’s not trivialize the loss by arguing semantics.

 

Other updates coming soon. But I wanted to take the time to talk about this.
