Robert 'Bo' White


As the proud owner of the inimitable White\'s Bar for over 26 years, Bo began working at White\'s when he was 12 years old, helping his mother sweep, mop and wax the tile floor. He would also clean off the steps to the basement and sweep and mop the walk-in cooler. "My favorite task was breaking liquor bottles (it was the law at the time) and setting the trash on fire in our metal trash can in the middle of our gravel parking lot." Bo played sports at Arthur Hill High School and earned 7 varsity letters. He graduated from MSU with a degree in Psychology and earned a Master Degree in Social Work at The University of Michigan. He\'s worked for Saginaw Community Mental Health Authority for 17 years. Currently he is a Supervisor of Children's Services. He is also a practicing therapist in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Bo has been contributing to Review Magazine since 2006.

Chris Zehnder has been a compelling presence in the Music Scene in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan. He cut his teeth with The Avery Set, a great band that was done too soon. College, travel and life itself intervened to give Chris a wanderlust that served him well. As a result, Zehnder matured and blossomed as an artist.

This book is a balls-on polemic about the Great American Swindle executed by Wall Street looters and their political shills – Democrats as well as Republicans. The big lie revealed by Taibbi isn’t about liberal or conservative ideals; it runs along class lines and is scaffolded by intense greed.

Listening to this new Silverspork CD is like opening a door to a blast furnace and basking in the heavy metal blaze as it seers your brain and melts your face. This band has the raw power of Iggy & the Stooges, the intensity of Eminem, the healing and prophecy of Bob Marley and the lucid political analysis of Noam Chomsky.
