Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds decision to lift state's mask mandates AND social distancing for all gatherings starting Super Bowl Sunday is like eliminating DUI laws starting New Year's Eve.

* Kyle Rittenhouse at a bar playing pool then goes out of sight.
* the QAnon Sharman gets organic food.
* now, the Texas florist will get to visit Mexico.
White justice. This is pathetic! If they were Black or Brown they would be in jail (w/our organic food) or dead!

Terrill Thomas died in April 2016 after being denied water for seven days at Milwaukee County Jail.
Jacob Chansley stormed the U.S. Capitol and was moved to a Virginia jail so corrections officials can provide him with organic food.

Something like a tenth of the people who live in the South and the Southwest — from South Carolina to Southern California — will decide to move north in search of better economy and environment.
Those who stay will be disproportionately poor and elderly. https://t.co/FmqMQcbzaK

From Captain to Klingon General and everything in between, Christopher Plummer leaves behind so many memorable performances in an Oscar-winning career that spanned over six decades.

Keep well, and stay safe.
And just a little shoutout to my hometown team…go Bucs!
Enjoy your Sunday…
They can’t get rid of him soon enough.
I wanted to share this with you:
What a wonderful post. The information presented on the actors and actresses we have lost bring back so many memories of their performances. I do wish that the LA times (or any obit I have read about her) had mentioned Ms. Tyson’s performances in How to Get Away with Murder. She was so powerful in every scene she did. It was beautiful to see her and Viola Davis together.
And thanks for the reminder of the Prince halftime. It was in a class by itself. Another life cut too short.
@djmm. The NY Times obit did mention her performances in How to Get Away with Murder and included the fact that she received Emmy nominations for them.
