Next, here are the stats for the United States of America: 3,483,905 confirmed cases, 138,358 confirmed deaths, and 1,026,816 confirmed recoveries. In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs our famed chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the numbers for the Golden State first: 347,634 confirmed cases, 7,227 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries, because Gov. Gavin Newsom is a POS hack politician. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,264 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 921 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige. Finally, here are the stats for the communist overrun Ever-Red (Evergreen) State: 42,304 confirmed cases, 1,430 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm for Blue States, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- shame on you, Governor Jay Inslee. For fun, let’s look at the Empire State, here are their stats: 404,006 confirmed cases, 32,350 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In New York, two men bear blame for all the deaths and must lose their qualified immunity: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill “Never Met a Communist I didn’t like” Di Blasio. Both men should be in prison for their ineptitude in handling this traumatic disease from CHINA.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The third album by Supertramp- “Crime of the Century”- came out on September 13, 1974 and was the band’s commercial breakthrough in both the United Kingdom and in the United States. Once again, the band underwent some changes in the lineup although the principal duo of Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals) remained the same. Joining them were John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion). Although not a theme album, it still revolved around issues of loneliness and mental difficulties, something that seems to be common for musicians living and working on the road. We love this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out and add it to your collection, you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY JULY 15, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
[i] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012. We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.
[ii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know. This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members. Please stay tuned.
[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013. We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections. You will be glad you did.
[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade. At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.
[v] See previous footnote.
[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018. Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands. All are fabulous.
[vii] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR. Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed. Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity.
[viii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015. We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago. Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine. What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.
