Elsewhere, on the southern Eastern Front- the Caucasus- the Red Army is mauling overstretched German military forces who are falling back in disarray to the Kuban defensive line.

As usual, the People’s Army digs trenches right up to the wire perimeters of the French positions and at the blast of the whistle storm up and hopefully over it into the trenches where hand-to-hand fighting will rage.

This pretentious fool called his boss a “moron,’ which is one of the major reasons he got canned. He was actively working against the president from within the State Department.
- 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico. The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force?

- 2020 Tuesday: As the day sputters to an end, cases of the Wuhan Virus continue going up although communist China continues braying like sheep that cases there are going down and life is returning to normal.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Waysted returned on April 30, 2008, with the album, “The Harsh Reality.” We have the great Pete Way on bass and vocals, Finn Moore on vocals, Chris George (guitars), and Paul Haslin handle the percussion duties. Fans of both Waysted and Pete Way love this album, seeing it as among the best albums the Waysted boys have ever recorded. We tend to agree and recommend that everyone rush out and give this album a good listen, it’s that good and worth every penny anyone wants for it. Some things you cannot fake and the intensity and the vigor encapsulated on this album will make anyone lifelong fans of the rockers that roared out of the 1960s and 1970s and will cause them to toss the modern music into the crapper. Search for it- you’ll love it but folks- look to eBay or somewhere else because Amazon.com wants nearly a grand- $1,000- for this album and friends, NO album is worth that kind of money unless it’s a massive collection of Faces bootleg shows.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 31, 2021
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Wednesday, March 31, 2021:
[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.
[ii] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035. We hope you will remain with us.
[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014. We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music. Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.
[iv] See previous footnote.
[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp but we hope to do it within the next year or so. You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[viii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash. They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.
[ix] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014. Look for them and add them to your collection.
