Until then, Burr is going to come out looking the worse any time the two are together.
I LOL'd at this, but also think that Burr's strength comes out in the longer-form pieces, as well as the art of distilling the recondite into something that the layman can follow.
Yesterday: A-Men Pure Havane (Thanks Rambro) for a day that started at 2 a.m. and ended rather late, with a 40-degree drop in temperature from morning to evening.
Today: a cold, blustery day, not supposed to get above 50. Amber Absolute.
