In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,250,380 confirmed cases, UP 64,051 new cases, 148,593 confirmed deaths, UP 943, and 1,277,437 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,030. Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 445,400 confirmed cases, 8,337 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,620 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,167 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 51,849 confirmed cases, 1,495 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov.

The number of cases in the state is 169,883 while the number of deaths is 7,560. No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries. Such a shame.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Evolving with the times, Supertramp released their next studio album, “Free as a Bird,” on October 13, 1987. The band was still a quartet featuring Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion). Joining them on guitars were Mark Hart and Marty Walsh- who also contributed keyboards and vocals- as well as a good-sized horn section. The band delivered some dance music, pulling back from the prog-rock sound that once defined them so the band was changing with the times. We hope you will seek them out no and add them to your collection- you will be glad you did.
