Finally, Washington state: 17,663 confirmed number of cases, 983 confirmed deaths, but like California, 0 confirmed recoveries. Far-left governors, stop with the flipping politics, give us the stats. On the unemployment front, we had another 3 million or so Americans file for their benefits. Thank you, communist China, thank you. Scumbags. Meanwhile, the judge in the Michael Flynn Case, Emmet Sullivan won’t let the case go even after the Justice Department said to ‘drop it.’ U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel: impeach this POS judge.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On September 24, 1990, Badfinger released a live album, “Day after Day Live,” an album that had long circulated as a bootleg but which was cleaned up by Joey Molland and released as an official release so the band would earn some much-needed royalties. Recorded at the height of the group’s career, the band features the most popular lineup of the group doing what they do best- performing some of the greatest music ever recorded in the history of rock-and-roll. The band features Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) and the tunes contained on this disc are all worth having. Please, seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
