  2. Hey, Cultural. It's good to hear from you, man. I've just been really busy. I don't know how you can keep this stuff-up. Time has not been my friend. We've been getting pelted with bad weather, so that gives me a bit more time.

    I'll check out BR soon, I certainly miss sparring with you, brother.

  3. Toussaint L’Ouverture is a prominent slave in the history of the slave trade. He rose up and fought the French oppressors. You can see a clip of his last moments in prison from the film “The Last Days of Toussaint L’Ouverture” – a short film – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2468184/
