Hey, y’all! Can you believe it’s May? This month is always a busy one for me and my family: Mother’s Day, The Deuce’s birthday, last day of school, and life in general.

I was saddened to learn that director John Singleton passed away this week. His family made the difficult decision to remove his life support after he suffered a stroke and remained in a coma for almost two weeks. He was only 51 years old. His family is urging men to get medical examinations frequently to combat high blood pressure, what has been called the silent killer.
