  59. 2014 Monday: “Nymphaea,” a painting in Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series, is auctioned today for a price of $54 million; this is only the second-highest price paid for a Monet – another painting in the series sold in 2008 for $80.3 million at auction.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  61. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  64. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.

Currently, Joe is shy 159,371 deaths

  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 92 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, to be in charge of the border and yet to have shown up for a single day’s work.  Still, a new pronouncement says that “Kooky Kamala” is going to tour the border this Friday so she can see the mayhem for herself.  Of course, this comes after last week’s announcement by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, that the pair would tour the border next Wednesday, June 30, with at least 12-15 other Republicans.  President Trump says- and rightfully so- that ‘Kooky Kamala Harris would NEVER have visited the southern border IF Trump had not announced that he was going.’  Amen.  In other border calamity news, the Biden regime is going to give illegal aliens who failed to show up for their ASYLUM HEARINGS a second bite at the apple by welcoming deportees back to try again.  F**king Joe.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the numbers from One America News that shows both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens as well as the magnitude of this unnecessary disaster: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Aliens $529,629,760.  (2) Total Amount this Year of caring for Illegal Aliens: $190,118,690,816.  (3) Total number of illegal aliens who have crossed in 2021: 1,948,564.  Finally, (4) Total ESTIMATED number of illegals in the United States: 35,948,564.[xvii]  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog that there were between 35-and-50 million illegals in the United States- back in 2009, no less- whereas now, we believe we have 75-100 million illegals in the United States and the numbers only continue growing.  Time to call in pest control services).
  76. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Royal Navy vessel transiting the Black Sea.   Meanwhile, the Intel community prophesies that the Afghan government could ‘topple’ within months of the U.S. pullout.  Folks, we have been there more than 20 frigging years and if the SOBs are not prepared by now to fight their own war, then it demonstrates the entire thing was a waste of resources and lives.   Elsewhere, reports have arisen saying that Russian naval vessels have approached within 2 dozen miles off the coast of various Hawaiian islands as they continue pushing the bounds and gathering intelligence.  What is clear is that NO one fears the ‘slobberer-in-chief,’ “Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden sitting in the White House basement spanking his wank.  (Like son, like father, we guess).  (Note- we expect that a new Axis of Russia, the Chi-Coms, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and second- and third-line allies of these nations will soon launch actions across the world because “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to do NOTHING in response.  We mean, why would they not?  It’s open hunting season against the U.S.)
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– USC and the Rand Corp. show the results of a recent study that excessive lockdowns and restrictions related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis caused more problems than they helped.  Of course, the libs have no desire to hear this but it’s true- depression, emotional issues, alcohol and drug abuse, apathy and suicide went up, up, and UP.  Elsewhere, 153 staff members of a Methodist hospital in Houston have either been fired or been forced to resign over their refusal to take the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Stand strong, people, stand strong.  Next, further reinforcing the beliefs of millions of Americans that the vaccines are either unnecessary or dangerous or both, the malevolent little dwarf, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci rushes out to claim the ‘Delta variant of the Chi-Vi is deadly but getting one of the vaccinations will protect one from its ravages.’  Right on time there, “Phony Tony.”  (Note- when is this lying POS going to be fired?  His time is up, folks).
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that Joe Biden should have pressed the Chin harder over answers as to the origins of the China Virus.  Good for you, senator.   Next, regarding the evil ‘Delta variant’ of the Xi Jinping Pox, health authorities are telling us that both AstraZeneca and Pfizer are effective at combatting this new, fearsome variant from the Wuhan Bat Lab.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the U.S. government seized an unauthorized shipment of Chairman Xi Kung Flu vaccines heading to Mexico.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-Oregon County officials have visited the ongoing Arizona 2020 Election audit so they can possibly replicate it in their counties.   Next, Michigan Republicans want to replicate an Arizona-style election audit in their state.  We say, “Go for it!”
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden News– Slobbering Joe Biden blames young people for sabotaging his efforts to get 70-percent of the American people vaccinated with one of the Chi-Vi vaccines roaming the land.  The more information that continues coming to light showing numerous adverse effects- especially on young people- the less people are inclined to get the shots.  NO MORE, JOE!  Meanwhile, Joe Biden nominates Cindy McCain to a U.N. post- the Food and Agriculture post, an ambassador-level position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Twenty-two GOP state attorneys general are fighting to protect the Hyde Amendment from rampaging Democrats who want to blacken everyone’s soul by using taxpayer dollars to fund the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  God bless them.   Next, the National Security Agency- the NSA- is reaching out to the private sector to help them combat hackers.  Speaking of hackers, esteemed (yeah, right) FBI boss Christopher Wray is encouraging hacked businesses not to pay the hackers ransoms.  Okay, what can they do?  What is the FBI doing on behalf of American businesses? 
  82. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– In New York City’s mayoral race, candidate Adams widens lead over nearest competitors Wiley and Garcia while Andrew Yang throws in the towel.  Sorry, Andrew, it appears you are as electable as is Robert Francis “Beto the Bullshitter” O’Rourke.  Maybe you should return to Taiwan?   In other political news, a majority of Republican voters say that ‘Critical Race Theory is a definite danger to the republic as founded.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill forcing colleges and universities to teach the EVILS of communism to their students.  About damned time. 
  83. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Next week, we hear that the United States and the communist Chin are holding some sort of talks.   Next, political genius Dick Morris says that ‘Donald J. Trump is confident that the media will break its silence on the election audits.’  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to hire 100,000 new police officers to combat the rising crime wave.  Amen.  Elsewhere, a new Rasmussen poll says that 41-percent of the American people do not believe that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election ‘fair and square.’  NO one we know does.  The guy bragged about having the largest voter theft organization in the history of the country.  Time to remove him from office.  Meanwhile, as Georgia Democrats continue screeching and wailing about the clean-up of the voter rolls in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, says that his government is following federal law ad it cleans up its voting rolls.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News IV– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘let’s concentrate on winning 2022 before we begin worrying about 2024.’  Amen.   Next, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that ‘without an increase in the debt ceiling, the United States could default on its debts by early August.’  This would collapse the country.  Jesus Christ, folks, the spiral of debt continues spinning like the spinning wheel spins (so sang Blood, Sweat & Tears back in the early 1970s).
  85. 2021 Wednesday Q:  U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court in an 8-1 decision handed the foul-mouthed cheerleader a big win today reaffirming the rights of Americans to freedom of speech.
  86. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s up to his old tricks once again babbling on about how he is going to do something about gun violence.  He goes after lawful gun owners while giving thugs and gangbangers a pass on shooting one another in the streets.   What a loser.  Next, a new poll says that 56-percent of the American people do not support the Biden regime’s screwed up handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.  We believe that’s true.  Most Americans want to see the Palestinians obliterated off the face of the globe so the entire Middle East could enjoy an extended peace.  It’s clear that Joe Biden loves the Palestinian Untermensch. (Note- must be money going into Joe’s back pocket somewhere in the money-go-round).
  87. 2021 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Joe Biden regime is launching a new campaign to go after ‘devious and crooked’ gun dealers whom they believe are selling guns out the backdoor to criminals and others who cannot own them.  Joe wants to take guns away from law-abiding criminals while doing nothing to go after criminals who misuse stolen guns to commit heinous crimes.  Once again, we have yet another prime example of how the people ‘elected’ to lead us hate our guts.  Joe says the Second Amendment does not permit the ownership of cannons and other weapons but if you read the amendment, it does not specify what types of weapons one can own.  We favor constitutional carry and have taken great pains to make sure when the “Joestapo” shows up at the door, they won’t find our guns.  F**k them.
  88. 2021 Wednesday T:  Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pentagon rejects the charge that the U.S. military has gone WOKE.  By saying they have ‘not gone WOKE’ when everyone knows they have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Pentagon has drunk long and deep from the well of toxic WOKE Kool-Aid.  Not a suitable time to enlist in the military folks.  We will wait until President Donald J. Trump returns to the White House, hopefully soon.   Elsewhere, a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia goes all to hell as people protesting the gender insanity being forced on their kids get hauled away in handcuffs to the hoosegow including parent Jon Tigges who came on the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News Channel.   The fuzz declared the meeting attended by hundreds of American patriots an ‘unlawful assembly’ and waded into the midst of the attendees, fighting with people who most likely have been BIG SUPPORTERS of the cops up until now.  Look for that to change.   Finally, as the LGBTQIA+ Nazis continue demanding we pay attention to the pronouns preferred by all the snowflakes and twinkies out there, let’s just call everyone, “Comrade.”  Is that acceptable?
  89. 2021 Wednesday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to be sentenced this Friday.  Everyone expects him to be sent away for 30 years.  We expect him to get a retrial, especially as how the judge allowed corrupt individuals onto the jury and that insane racist skank, Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district, went to Minneapolis the weekend prior to the verdict coming in and ginned up the threat of violence IF the jury acquitted Officer Chauvin.  “Prune Face” should be doing time in a federal slammer for jury tampering.
  90. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, has put forth a bill censuring the slobberer-in-chief, Joe Biden, over his criminal mishandling of the crisis along the southern border. 
  91. 2021 Wednesday W: U.S. Senate News– The U.S. Senate GOP successfully smacked down H.R. 1, aka S. 1- the “For the People Act” aka the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” via a unified stance.  This is great because it would allow the Democrats to federalize the system of elections that would be little more than a blatant power grab.[xviii]
  92. 2021 Wednesday X: Maryland State News–  Former DNC bigwig Tom Perez, DS, has thrown his hat into the ring for governor of the Old-Line State.  Wow.  This guy is nothing more than a political hack much like the Clinton bagman, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, who is trying to become the governor of Virginia again.
  93. 2021 Wednesday Y: Sports News– Organizers for the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo announced today that they are banning alcohol sales and prohibiting fans from getting autographs from their favorite Olympians.  Next, defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders Carl Nassib comes out as the first active openly gay player in the NFL.  Big whoop, he will be taking showers by himself from this point henceforth.  At least Michael Sam had to go to Canada to play and up there, he didn’t last long.  We expect Nassib will be out of the league within a year or two.
  94. 2021 Wednesday Z: Observation of the Day– This segment segues in perfectly.  All this talk about trannys- chicks with dicks– competing in the Olympics is insane just as it is for every other level of sports.  IF women must compete with sick boys claiming to be girls (like that ‘looker’ from New Zealand, the weightlifter), girls should be allowed to ‘dope.’  If they can dope, then they can stand an even chance at defeating this emotionally mixed-up boys; otherwise, it’s time to create a third category of sports- TRANNY SPORTS.  We have the ‘Special Olympics,’ let’s have the “Tranny Olympics.”  I bet more people would watch the ‘Tranny Olympics’ because who doesn’t like watching a good carnival freak show?  We know we do.
  95. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Super Lotto Draw #3571 has a $57 million on the line tonight.  Meanwhile, the Powerball Draw #857 has a $63 million pot up for grabs so please, stick around and see the results.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 04, 09, 38, 40, 41, and Mega 25.  Out of 133,078 winning tickets, the highest winners were 25 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $983 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 43,922 winning tickets in California, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,624.
  96. 2022 Thursday: Here is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY when Chef Vladdie was doing the week: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ (the Joestapo) shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the highly lampooned but equally true “Replacement Theory,” you know, the one in which American voters are replaced with a foreign-born population.  Of course, that’s just ‘QAnon shit, right?’   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…then again, we probably will publish them NEXT year.

[i] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.

[xviii] So as not to appear hypocrites like Democrats always do, we have pushed for a uniform system of elections codified by a constitutional amendment that would (1) demand voter ID for all elections (2) would imprison both unqualified voters (illegal aliens, felons, and others deemed incapable of voting), (3) would end same-day voting and early voting but would expand Election Day voting hours as well as provide absentee voting for those with a need to do so.  We also believe that U.S. military across the world should be able to vote a month in advance of Election Day and that their ballots would be transferred via military custody to a national military election site in Washington, D.C., where they would then be broken down into their states, counties, and cities.  Uniformity is important so long as it is to guarantee that ALL Lawful ballots are counted and unlawful ones not.  Also, if there are any crimes like we witnessed last election cycle such as GOP observers being booted, cardboard thrown up in windows, recounting of ballots, and trucking in pristine ballots printed elsewhere, people should face 25 years in a federal prison without the hope of early release.  Dead people must not vote, illegal aliens must not vote, criminals must not vote, and electronic machines and software programs should be booted in place of paper ballots with a paper trail.  You see, Democrats CANNOT win most honest elections which is why they are always trying to thieve elections any way they can.  We posit that DEEP BLUE STATES and CITIES most likely are a deep, deep RED.

Later, federal regulators said a sleep-deprived engineer had nodded off at the controls just before taking the 30-mph curve at 82-mph, causing the derailment.  Elsewhere, an overwhelming 65-percent of the Croatian people vote ‘yes’ on a referendum on a proposal to outlaw same-sex marriage.      
  54. 2014 Monday: The United Nations World Food Program ends its support of 1.7 million Syrian refugees in nations adjoining that nation due to running out of funds to continue providing this support. In late summer of 2015, these so-called ‘refugees’ begin crossing the Aegean from Turkey and invade southern Europe.       
  55. 2015 Tuesday: As the 21stN. Climate Change summit known as COP21 continues in Paris, France, the government extends the zone for their protest ban further afield as loads of protesters are making their anger known as the world leaders of developed countries attend this leftist claptrap summit.

News reports said that as many 10 of the MS-13 subhuman garbage lured the individual to the park, where they beat him, choked him, stabbed him more than 100 times, decapitated him, and finally tore his heart out of his chest.   Cops in Montgomery County have no clue as to why these Untermenschen committed this heinous act.  Put a bullet in the back of their heads and be done with it.
  58. 2018 Saturday: France continues seeing the violent ‘yellow-vest protests’ as more than 36,000 protesters take to the streets angry over rising fuel prices, Islamist terrorism, and other things crippling the corrupt country.

  59. 2019 Sunday: The House Judiciary Committee announces Wednesday is the day when it will hold its first hearings in the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, three women accuse U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland of sexual improprieties from before he assumed this position.  Looks like #MeToo strikes again.  Elsewhere, the first traceable patient infected with COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Kung Flu, among other names- a 55-year-old Chi-Com citizen in Wuhan, China, is diagnosed with the disease.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: In Lansing, Michigan in the state Senate’s Oversight Committee, witness after witness after witness testifies as to the shocking levels of corruption and voter fraud that occurred within the state before, on, and post-Election Day. Witnesses testifies to all sorts of anomalous behavior that occurred, from mishandling of ballots to ballots arriving under cover of darkness from out of state, and the persecution of Republican poll workers.   Still, people are curious as to WHY with all the accumulating evidence demonstrating the shocking level of fraud that occurred in the 2020 Election on behalf of the Biden campaign, WHERE is the FBI, WHERE is the U.S. Department of Justice, WHERE are the legions of elected Republicans demanding answers to this horrendous mess?  Is it because they think this won’t happen to them if everything returns to ‘normal?’  Don’t be so naïve.  Meanwhile, a judge in Clark County, Nevada, rules that election workers must leave the voting machines, containers, and everything else associated with the 2020 Elections untouched for investigative purposes.  Elsewhere, the Trump campaign is fighting in Wisconsin to get 221 thousand absentee ballots thrown out over them being corrupted. 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: New Jersey law enforcement officers are investigating a dead pig left on the door of a rabbi during the Jewish sabbath. Elsewhere, Ohio’s GOP is bucking the lockdown restrictions of Republican Governor Mike DeWine.  About time.    Meanwhile, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden now is receiving daily presidential briefings.  Finally, West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin says, ‘AOC is mostly active on Twitter and nowhere else.’  How true.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 63,556,040 confirmed cases, UP by 526,965 cases, 1,474,643 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,848 deaths, and 40,798,426 confirmed recoveries, UP by 463,207 recoveries.

  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,236,256 confirmed cases, 19,212 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,006 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 172,340 confirmed cases, 2,895 confirmed deaths, but like California, the brutish governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 102,158 confirmed number of cases, 937  confirmed number of deaths, and 40,929 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 338,127 confirmed cases, 2,877 confirmed deaths, and 323,224 confirmed recoveries.

  65. 2020 Tuesday E: Communist China says its robot probe has successfully landed on the moon. They provided no other information as to what its purpose on the moon is going to be.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are angry with Australia for pulling closer to the U.S. and because they are beefing up their own defenses to deter aggression from the communist thugs.   Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William Barr says the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the country that would overturn the election results.  However, if one watches OAN and watches the hours of testimony in various battleground states across the nation, one understands that the fraud was rampant, planned, and well-coordinated.  Of course, no one cares about that now…       
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Here the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions $1612 Draw with a $229,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 07, 33, 53, 61, 65, and Mega 14.

  67. 2020 Tuesday G: At the White House Christmas party, President Donald J. Trump mentioned that IF he honestly lost the 2020 Presidential Election, we could see him make a second run in 2024. Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States.   Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas.  Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State.  Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’   Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.  This is not good, and it must stop.  In Seattle, lawmakers plan to slash the Seattle Police Department’s budget for 2021 by 18-percent all the while homicides within the city are skyrocketing.  So far this year, 55 people have been murdered in the city.  In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, violent car-jackings are up by a whopping 537 percent.     
  68. 2020 Tuesday H: Famed economist Walter E. Williams died at age 84 today. He taught his final class at George Mason University the previous evening.  A famed economist, he authored numerous books on both economics as well as race and intersections between the two.  In the past, he used to occasionally host the Rush Limbaugh Program and was beloved by millions of his fans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The combined estates of Sandy Denny and her late husband, Trevor Lucas combined to release a fitting conclusion to their careers: “The Attic Tracks 1972-1984” (February 11, 1995).  This stunning effort features classics, unreleased material, and rarities, all combined together to present a compelling picture of what a renowned artist Ms. Denny was, augmented by her husband.  This one can sometimes be challenging to find; however, if you visit sites such as AllMusic, Discogs, and other online emporiums of music, you might find it at a decent price even by visiting eBay and other such sites.  Ah, well, seek it out and if able to give it a listen, please do so.  We think you will enjoy it as much as do.  We still enjoy listening to this superlative CD as we know you will once you have slapped it into your CD player.  Enjoy.
