Of course, all of it comes from the potentially insane mind of Bryan W. Alaspa. Bryan spent time as a self-proclaimed “self-syndicated” columnist. Almost daily he would write a column and post it around the internet. At times the columns were funny. Other times they were insightful. Many times they were angry.
