ORLANDO – On Saturday, you have an opportunity to meet Pepe, Ajax and Buttercup.

But the nondescript R.T. makes one error in judgment: he decides to bring along a young friend, Ryan, who uses the two weeks to get high on Ecstasy and spend his days looking for alluring women at the pleasure palace’s pool. Continue reading

ORLANDO — Consider the topics.
The link between elected office — and sociopathy.
