  1. David Roskos Is the Voice of an disrespected Many. His sax playing still has left me partially deaf in my right ear, and his open word poetry has left permanent tinitis in my right, but his words have left the biggest scars on my heart and memory… David Roskos is a true Wordsmith an every sence of the word…and a Good Man, and Father to Boot!
