Mall shooting in Arizona. Well, it didn’t take long to get back to normal. We’re open, we’re open, USA, USA!
I don’t know what organization or individuals put this together but today for that second time in recent weeks a group of area rodders came together to tour the main streets of Greenfield in their various favorite drives.
I drove to town with Cooper the dog and together we found a place on North Washington Street to watch the parade and shoot a not too good video to share with those who couldn’t make it.
Thanks to all who played a part in making this diversion a reality.
On May 1st I wrote a blog claiming it was time to reset the COVID-19 clocks. Trump was claiming that America would experience 50-60 thousand virus deaths by August (and he would consider that a win) and on May 1st we’d already reached 63,000 deaths. So, it made sense that we pay close attention to what the number does between May 1st and August 1st, just to see how wrong he turns out being.
It’s that time again. Time for Trae Crowder to use the tool redneck profanity to gain our attention and try to pound some sense into our heads. By the way, I was recently asked if I was a hill billy redneck. Well, I must be since I understand every dirty word Crowder uses.
Life as we’ve known it, thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, may have changed forever.
As we age we keep amassing dates we’re supposed to remember and events were not supposed to forget where we were.
May 4, 1970, is one such date. Fifty years ago today was the day Ohio’s Kent State University forever became a permanent chapter in the nation’s anti-Vietnam War history book.
It was the day when Ohio governor James Rhoades unleashed the Ohio National Guard and permitted it to use lethal military force to quell student anti-war activities on the campus of Kent State
Today is the first of May and the Coronavirus death count just went north of 62,000, more than the number of US troops who died in Vietnam. The total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the nation is nearing 1.1 million. It is also the date that many states plan to begin relaxing their COVID-19 restrictions while not meeting the most minimal of federal guidelines.
As the states begin turning to business as usual, nobody knows what will happen. Almost the entire scientific and medical community tells us it is too soon and we can expect to see the number of confirmed virus cases and deaths explode. Approximately 85% of the population thinks it’s too soon to open the gates. At the same time, Orange of the White House and his tribe of anti-science Mad Maxers argue that making money and checking out asses at the beach is more important than grandparents dying.
RECESSION: The 1st quarter US GDP dropped by 4.8%. If the same occurs in the next 3 months the US will officially be in an economic recession.
Orange of the White House got into one of his shit storms on Twitter yesterday and raved that Noble Journalism Prize recipients should return their journalism prizes to the Noble Committee. Upon being told by one of his caretakers that there was no such thing as a Noble Prize he deleted the tweet but not fast enough. The Internet works much faster than Trump and his latest stupidity was found out.
A learned person would know that there is the Nobel Prize and it has nothing to do with journalism. The journalism prize is the Pulitzer Prize. There are a variety of Nobel Prizes in various areas of science and literature and a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. Trump will never possess either to hang on his wall next to that Purple Heart he will never have.
This is Trae Crowder and friends and it’s a sketch. But, can’t you just close your eyes and see such a planning session actually taking place?
Who knew, until Orange of the White House told us, that for most of us the cure to COVID-19 is no further than the cabinets under our kitchen sinks or maybe on the floor in our laundry room. But then again, Orange, “is no doctor.”
This caught my attention on the nightly news a few days ago but I wasn’t sure I got the facts correct. The news item had to do with fast-food restaurants and how they are doing with no dine-in business.
If you’ve ever tried to get down Jefferson Street in Greenfield at any rush hour you know that McDonald’s drive-thru window may be the
I was watching some news earlier and one of the subjects was the anti stay at home policy of the Michigan governor. Seems the right-wing doesn’t give a shit about science or viral death if it gets in the way of them scratching their asses in someone else’s space. Their motto seems to be, One for None, or some other selfish nonsense.
Of the many photos I saw, two caught my attention. One was of a sixty-something man dressed in a red MAGA cap and armed with a video camera. He had his face into about every group shooting
Several months ago my son, Mike, told me about a video I needed to watch of a young Taiwanese ukelele player named Feng E. I found it on YouTube and was blown away. Later he told me to check out Feng E playing a duet with Tommy Emmanual, the great Australian guitarist. Then yesterday he said I had to watch a jam between Feng E and Queen guitarist Brian May.
