Outrageous
19 October 2018 | by mmorrow-68002See all my reviews

I'm not sure how this got past any editors or test screeners. it is an awful over reaching mess with many arguments falling short after thinking on them for a few minutes. using Apu as a scapegoat seems like just a way for this m,an to make his money. would not recommend
