A Year Later.

Some Things Just Don’t Go Away.

It has been a year since my post with many words to ponder. I listed people, news events, and other items of interest (or concern). Now, one year later, in the middle of the Dog Days of August, here is a new list that unfortunately contains some of the same words and topics from the summer of 2020:

  • The fires of California and Evia – are these man-made or due to changes with the global climate?
  • Mayhem over masks – sort of sad that we fight about wearing a mask.
  • The CDC & WHO – there is still varying info coming from these two authorities.
  • Sweltering heat – in all the obvious places but also in the Pacific Northwest?
  • Atlanta Hawks – a good draft puts them in a good position for 2021-22.
  • Vaccines – I would never tell anyone to get vaccinated, but please look at the science and data.
  • Schools reopen – let’s do what is right for the CHILDREN.
  • Covid-19 and Variants – now there is the Variant +.
  • Caitlyn Jenner and Gavin Newsom – two reasons I avoid politics.
  • Atlanta United resurgence – a new manager and new DP.
  • Orlando Pride & Orlando City – in a word, strong.
  • Restaurants needing employees – the issue of finding help continues.
  • The minimum wage – will $15.00 an hour spur employment?
  • Return to the office – not so fast.
  • Terror in Ethiopia – where are the United Nations’ security forces?
  • Jeopardy without Alex Trebek – very big shoes to fill.
  • Airborne pathogens – the Variant’s path to contraction.
  • Bezos & Branson – money talks.
  • N95 – the mask of the month.
  • Cryptocurrencies – funny money.
  • Fans back in the stands – let us hope this continues.
  • ICU capacity – at levels similar to a year ago.
  • Cuomo & Cuomo – I have no words.
  • The SEC – it is going to grow. Texas and Oklahoma.
  • Spirit Airlines fail – no planning; no forecasting; no operational redundancy.
  • College Football – two weeks and counting.
  • Cruise lines in flux – on Friday, twenty-seven people aboard a Carnival cruise tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Dr. Fauci – you are 80-years-old?
  • The English Premier League – let’s go!
  • Afghanistan – now we send back 3,000 troops?
  • Tom Brady – meh.
  • The Olympic Games – some surprises including the U.S. Women’s National Team.
  • Asteroid Bennu – the possible impact with Earth is a long way off…we hope.
  • Haiti – this country just cannot catch a break.

Adios, pay it forward, be safe, and have a Funday Sunday!
