Still no sports news, unless you consider Kurt Angle getting laid off by the WWE “sports news”. If you do, then there you go.
Aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright was born on this day. He shares it with legendary actor (that’s no understatement, he’s probably the second-best silent film comedic actor of all time) Charlie Chaplin, not-as-famous actor Peter Ustinov, composer Henry Mancini, pope-before-the-commie-pope Benedict XVI, football player Dick “Night Train” Lane, Foghat’s Lonesome Dave Peverett, basketball big man Kareem Abdul Jabbar, NFL Coach Bill Belichick, soccer manager Rafael Benitez, funny man Martin Lawrence, and musician Chance The Rapper.
A couple big names there, but mostly “meh”. SO I’m moving on to…the links!
Maybe this could have been sports news, but I’m putting it here. Some questions start getting answers in the Roy Halladay death. Dude was either committing suicide or he was playing an aviation version of Russian roulette.
Looks like Denmark will be a test case on returning to some normalcy. And yes, some people are freaking out. Because for some reason they think we can all stay in lockdown forever.
The White House are giving guidelines for some locations to lift restrictions after May 1st. And yes, some people are freaking out. Because for some reason they think we can all stay in lockdown forever.
New Zealand will keep most restrictions in place once they relieve some of their extreme restrictions. And yes, some people are freaking out. Because for some reason they think we can all stay in lockdown forever.
As if the DUI checkpoints weren’t already problematic…Chicago decides to go full police-state.
Uh, yeah, that’s how having an overdrawn bank account works. So they’ll still get their money. It’ll just be applied to an outstanding debt they voluntarily took on. Sorry, them’s the rules.
Even money says this turns into a political shit-show. Dude broke a very serious rule and should have been relieved. If he’s being reinstated because he is otherwise competent and learned his lesson, I’m good with it. If it happens because he’s become a celebrity, then I’m not.
I wonder how bad they’ll be this time. Oh well, as long as people tolerate this nonsense, I guess they’ll continue to climb. To hell with the economy, right?
I wonder when a politician will run an “a chicken in every pot” campaign. Could be this year if we’re thrust that quickly into a for-real depression.
Please enjoy this. I know I will.
Now have a great day, friends.
