Pottstown Blogger Calls It Quits

We here at Roy’s Rants would like to bid a fond farewell to Mo Gallant and her Pottstown’s Blog.  Mo has decided to throw in the towel, at least for now.  We thank you Mo for your commitment to Pottstown and your friendship over the last several years.  We wish you nothing but good things and hope maybe someday you’ll take up the torch again.
