Introducing Jeremy Chiaroscuro by MacMillan Ross


Jeremy Chiaroscuro is one of the most important men in American politics.  Not that he is a politician.  Jeremy wants to be a puppet master and not one of the puppets whose only qualification is an insipid face and a case of hairspray.  Like his one-time rival Carl Rogue, he was a protégé of the legendary Grant Blackpool, who until his premature death pioneered the science of hardball politicking.



One of the advantages of any “crisis,” (real or manufactured, grave or embellished) is that we get to observe how it is handled by various people and institutions. As Covid Craziness continues to engulf our society while our fearless leaders attack it one press conference at a time, Christians should examine how the Church is responding.
