What is startling was Bundy's old brand of racism, where African-Americans are referred to as Negros and we're sitting around waiting for free checks from the government.

    YES, it's been cold, and yes, sometimes, at the end of the day, getting under a pile of blankets with some hot tea is really the most appealing thing in the entire world.

The Sentient Bean is one of the coziest places in town, and with tons of coffee and tea selections and the warm, soothing vocals of Lobo Marino, faeryteeth and Swamp Trees - well - it's almost more comfortable than home.
