Missouri Penguins Enjoy ‘Morning Of Fine Art’ At Local Museum

After watching a video of Penguins from the Kansas City Zoo visiting the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, I was amazed at how cute and funny and social they appeared. They seemed to be everything you’d want as a pet.

White House moves to shield Trump from oversight of his coronavirus response

The White House is barring members of the coronavirus task force from testifying before Congress without special permission, claiming that they’re too busy.

Of course, the two most important members, Fauci and Birx, haven’t been too busy to spend 2-3 hours a day, 7 days a week, as props for Trump.

But there’s a little wrinkle in the process. Seems permission is granted for appearances at Senate hearings, not House hearings. I wonder why?

Trump calls protesters who carried guns into the Michigan Capitol ‘very good people’

I was watching the videos of gun-toting demonstrators protesting Michigan’s coronavirus lockdown as they stormed the state capitol building. The images were horrific!

Trump Hits Biden Over Observing Virus Restrictions

I promised myself that I’d take a break from Around the Block today and instead go back to writing a few more chapters of my book, “Bashert,” (Look for it on Amazon in a few years).

But then I saw this on “Morning Joe” (actually courtesy of Trevor Noah and “The Daily Show”) and couldn’t help myself.
