  2. The link is always there. Just another drug story. The difference is that this one got caught.

  3. Poor judgement. Let's be real ! One would think that searches by US customs of people heading to US from foreign ports, are more rigorous when disembarking from certain ports.

    • Huh !! (deck deck at it's finest). Just what are you saying Praytell ? Just for the record since it's seems like you know a lot which port of entry to US is less rigorous when disembarking in 2018. Inquiring minds would like to know.

  5. "Get rich quick " scheme gone bad!

  6. New Testament Verse of the Day:
    But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him."
