The bad news is, author, playwright, radio comic, Joseph K. Adams has passed. I will so miss him. Here’s the last (worth reading) I heard from Joesky:

For me it was being molested as a child and having to deal with it where it belongs, in the past, I was for, I’m not for now. And I can protect me. That is a huge amount of growth.
