Tuesday Motes

Of course:  Biden’s “cabinet” choices make no sense; they have no experience and no knowledge of the post. Wait, I know, look how well his son did with no experience or training. Hell, all it takes is a little get up and go.

This does not surprise me in the least: In a world where everything is happening online, Christopher Walken revealed that he has somehow managed to avoid modern technology. The actor, 77, appeared virtually for an interview on “The Late Show” where he noted that doing things via video chat is a rarity for him since he stays away from any and all technology. Walken explained that the real reason is not complicated.  “I just got to it too late,” he explained. “I think I‘m right at a certain age where it just passed me by. I never got involved in it because it would be strange to have any 10-year-old be much better at it than I am.” I know how he feels.

Does Hollyweird have any new ideas: I’d have to say no. As noted previously everything is a re-do, a prequel, or a sequel. Now they say they’re going to “sequel” “Night Court”. Again, I say, please dear gods, just say NO.

 Because, shut up.: COVID-19 relief package, reportedly negotiated between a handful of Senate Republicans and Democrats, includes a bailout for Defense Department contractors while maybe excluding a second round of stimulus checks for ordinary Americans. Slipped into the package, seemingly on the final few of the 525 pages, is an extension of a CARES Act provision that allows federal agencies to pay taxpayer money to defense contractors who are not working during the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

A sad good-bye: K.T. Oslin, the first female songwriter to win the CMA Award for Song of the Year, for her 1987 hit “80’s Ladies,” died Monday at 78. Oslin had been battling Parkinson’s disease and was diagnosed with Covid-19 last week, according to her friend. Born Kay Toinette Oslin in Arkansas, was 45 when she released her chart-topping debut country album, 1987’s 80’s Ladies — a remarkable feat then for a woman in country music and a near impossibility today. I was a C&W radio dj when she broke out. Her voice, her personality, and her courage will be missed.

The new racism: Twitter says after he “isn’t” president, they can ban Trump, a republican wins the Austin city council seat and the local newspaper doesn’t cover it, and political retribution that caused the fire at a Portland rib restaurant owned by rapper Snoop Dogg’s uncle who was critical of Antifa. The new second class citizen is anyone who opposes the leftist “leaders”.

I got a new idea: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is collaborating with the Florida Department of Health to investigate the mercury levels in pythons to determine if they can be safely consumed. If so, the snakes may soon end up on restaurant menus and dinner tables across the state. Soon to be available at your local “Iguana On A Stick”, a Rack of Python, Python Tail Taco’s, and Snake on a Stick.

Who had “volcano erupting” on their 2020 card?
