Meanwhile, a racial equality march in Washington, D.C., is set to commence purportedly in honor of the 57th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have a Dream” speech. We shall see if it devolves into mob violence as last night in the nation’s capital, following the final night of the Republican National Convention, violence exploded shortly after midnight as attendees of the RNC convention were assaulted as they left the White House grounds making way to their automobiles to go home. Elsewhere, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announces his resignation due to poor health. God bless! Next, United Airlines announces that 3,000 pilots will be grounded by October if the country does not begin reopening. Finally, Lord & Taylor clothing stores announced they will be closing down and laying off their employees six years short of hitting the chain’s 200th anniversary. How sad.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roy Wood’s Wizzard released its sophomore effort, “Introducing Eddie and the Falcons,” on November 19, 1974. Once again, his band featured the lineup of Wood himself on numerous instruments and vocals as well as former Move bandmate Rick Price (bass/vocals/percussion), Bill Hunt (keyboards, horns, and vocals), Nick Pentelow (saxophones and woodwinds), Mike Burney (horns), Keith Smart (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound. The album did better in sales than did its predecessor album, “Wizzard Brew.” As always, the writing and lyrics are superb as anywhere Roy Wood is means there is a great deal of talent injected into whatever effort upon which he applies himself.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY AUGUST 28, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Friday, August 28, 2020:
[i] We hope to promote the music of the Soft Machine at some point within the next 3-5 years. We hope you will be with us when that celebrated day arrives. We thank you.
[ii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.
[iii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.
[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years. We hope you will still be with us.
[v] Congressman Eric Swalwell, well-known for his lack of intellect, entered the fray on Monday, April 08, 2019, and was among those sorry low-end losers who had to beg for donations so he could appear on the debate stage. There was no way in hell that anyone would ever vote the so-called ‘Farter-in-Chief’ for anything higher than the House seat he now holds.
[vi] Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper entered the race on March 04, 2019. His most notable contribution to the Democratic Party’s nomination process was an admission that he ‘took his mother to see the porn classic, “Deep Throat,” not knowing fully what it was,’ he claimed mom asked to see the movie. Think what you will. STRANGE.
[vii] Governor Jay Inslee jumped into the running on March 01, 2019, and his big thing- and only thing- was that he was going to devote 100-percent of his time dueling with climate change. He looks, sounds, and acts like a palooka and Democratic voters saw him for the POS he is. He did not last very long.
[viii] Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, an Iraq War vet, entered the race on April 21, 2019. He seemed like a decent guy but when everyone around you is jostling one another to see who can go bat crap crazy far-far-far-left, Congressman Moulton stood no chance at ever winning the nomination.
