Descending The Tower – 13, Part 1: 2017 Year In Review

It’s that time of year again! We’re on to 2018, but not before we put our own brand of commentary punctionation on the CURRENT YEAR that was. Anthony, NBS, and Antony, are joined by James A. Donald, Alistair Hermann, Gerald Mann, and Harold Lee for the first half of the year, from President Trump’s inauguration to the GOP congressional assassination attempt.
