In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

- 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army will immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor. The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent. Good for you, President al-Sissi!
- 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant. Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side. He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army. It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination. Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum. This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November. VOTE TRUMP!

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
We saved Syd Barrett’s solo work until we arrived close to the end of the Pink Floyd presentation because his two notable solo albums came out after he departed the group in 1968. Some say he became erratic due to excessive psychedelic usage combined with being a possible schizophrenic which some claim to be true and others deny. Ah, well, his first solo album, “The Madcap Laughs,” came out on January 03, 1970 and is a stunning look into the mind of an enlightened artist. Barrett performs guitars and vocals, David Gilmour provides bass and backing vocals, Jerry Shirley, Robert Wyatt, and Willie Wilson drums and percussion, Hugh Hopper (bass), and Mike Ratledge (keyboards). Great album, one every fan of both Pink Floyd and the Psychedelic Sixties should own so seek it out now. You will enjoy it.
