As prophesied, Tkaronto’s “elders” have become dependent as babies on handouts from the great evil, overtaken by the Jezebel spirits of greed, jealousy, arrogance, and competition.

We jeer at Pigeon and call her mean names like “flying rat” instead of taking the time to get to know her and to learn her lessons.
