Last week: You’re reading this on Sunday, but I’m writing this on Election Day. Turnout has been fantastic, and there hasn’t been any problems yet, but … The Weather Channel just said that Hurricane Eta is heading in our direction, and NOAA has us in the Cone of Death – really, 2020? Tomorrow, which is Wednesday, (hopefully we’ll have some results) half of us will be in various states of depression, and the other half of us will be celebrating. Either way, is there enough alcohol in the world to get us through this, no matter which side of the political fence you’re sitting on?
Looking ahead: Let’s discuss 2020 for a minute. Has anything about it been fair? I’ve been watching, as business after business has been negatively affected. Restaurants have figured out how to do business without customers and with Plexiglas partitions. Hotels and airplanes are virtually empty. And just this week, the layoffs hit home. We lost a dedicated, hard-working friend, who was excelling at his job and through absolutely no fault of his own, finds himself out of work. He’s not alone. Once COVID-19 is behind us, what are all these people going to do, and how are we going to help?
