A Job Shouldn’t Be A Death Trap   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   I think it’s safe to say that any job that requires working directly with the public involves substantial risk these days.

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘True Freedom Requires Give And Take’

True Freedom Requires Give And Take   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   There are a lot of things that go on in this world that I don’t like. For instance, I’m not a proponent of same-sex marriages. I also don’t think it’s cool for men to wear skin-tight britches. I hate the use of auto-tune in…

Clarence Barr’s Reality On Ice-‘Only God Knows What’s Coming’

Only God Knows What’s Coming   BY CLARENCE BARR, II   For as long as I can remember I’ve always felt that doomsday predictors were the most ridiculous sort of people.
