Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 46,946 confirmed cases, 1,447 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.

- 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 71 people shot and 12 dead. In New York City, 30 people were shot over the weekend with 10 dead. Where are Black Lives Matter? Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence.
- 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog. This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels. We must stop this POS from undermining the country.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Following the release of “Breakfast in America” and the subsequent worldwide tour supporting it, Supertramp returned to the studio and worked long and hard on the follow-up effort, the much maligned “…Famous Last Words,” on October 07, 1982. This album would be the final one to feature the classic lineup of Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion) as change was once more in the wind. The album did deliver a marvelous single, “It’s Raining Again,” which is a true joy to behold. Although the flipping critics at the time lambasted both the album and the band for putting out ‘schlock,’ this song alone is well worth the price of admission. We encourage everyone to seek it out at whatever haunt you do for the absolute best in classic rock music. You will be glad you did. We thank you.
