We keep losing the good ones: Former Republican presidential candidate and pizza magnate Herman Cain has died from the coronavirus. Cain, 74, had been hospitalized since early July after he began having trouble breathing. The former CEO of “Godfathers Pizza” . Cain “embodied the American Dream and represented the very best of the American spirit. … We will never forget his legacy of grace, patriotism, and faith.”
They could become a gang: Two brazen emu siblings named Kevin and Carol have been banned from a hotel in Australia’s Outback for bad behavior. The tiny Yaraka Hotel has just four rooms, as well as campgrounds and a pub. Co-owner Chris Gimblett says the emus were once welcome visitors and would pop by every now and then for a few biscuits. Then they learned to climb stairs. They’ve had to put up a chain rope at the top of the steps, along with a sign that reads: “Emus have been banned from this establishment for bad behavior. Please let yourself through the emu barrier and then reconnect”. Let’s hope the Emu’s never discover strippers and motorcycles.
What, me worry: Why am I worried about my government? Let’s see, there’s a Tennessee Senator indicted for spending $600K dollars in grant money for her wedding, birthday, and divorce; an Ohio Representative facing racketeering charges, an Arizona Representative receiving a reprimand and fine from the House Ethics committee and that’s just in today’s news.
Our leaders: Once again our state governor and county mayor have decided that if one is bad, all are bad. Because 2 bars, commonly known as “buy me drinkee” bars, have exposed customers to Covid-19, he needs to close ALL the bars down. This will destroy an already fragile business and many will close, for good. The close decree is good until Aug 31, this will seal the fate of some 180+ establishments that have already said they can’t afford to close down again. Bars usually operate on a fairly slim profit to begin with and to remain closed this length of time. Let’s not even mention the number of servers that had to work at 2 or 3 different places to make enough to live on, and counted mainly on tips. They are now permanently unemployed. The place I got married, open 50 years, will now probably close for good ( bad actually). Hawaii economy, Good-Bye.
