- 2020: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU. Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288. In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries. Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries. Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905. Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries. Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries. My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Drummer and percussionist for Pink Floyd- Nick Mason- recorded an album of his own, “Nick Mason’s Fictitious Sports,” which came out on May 03, 1981. Numerous musical friends joined him and one, vocalist Robert Wyatt of Soft Machine, contributed the vocals. Solo albums by drummers being what they are, the main artist many times is dependent on those supporting him so it is what it is. We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as a ‘rarity.’ We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.
