Today is a day of reckoning let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong

More off the Coconut Telegraph -Ivy Anderson resigned the day before this all went down (I had the chance to work with her on a few things when she was the CFO at Alliance; I’m not a fan of hers at all) -Sandi Sigg knew of this at least a couple of days in advance, […]
