It’s only Thursday? Uh-oh, might have to crack open this fresh shrink-wrapped collection of Five Centered Asterisks™.
Two kids in Paulding County Georgia who posted images of overcrowded schools have been suspended. That’s so wrong from a first amendment standpoint, but I’m happy they’re out of that school.
A Chatham County Georgia 7-year-old (that’s near Savannah) died from coronavirus, and many online said this was fake news. No, no it wasn’t.
The Republican Governor of the State of Ohio tested positive for coronavirus right before he was scheduled to welcome the President to the Buckeye State.
The Attorney General of the State of New York is suing the National Rifle Association, citing widespread corruption. She wants the organization to be dissolved entirely. The New York state news release cites “dozens of examples where the four individual defendants failed to fulfill their fiduciary duty to the NRA and used millions upon millions from NRA reserves for personal use, including trips for them and their families to the Bahamas, private jets, expensive meals, and other private travel.” The NRA is registered as a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit, charitable corporation in New York State, so, yeah, I think they may be in a bit of trouble.
Also, you know, they took lots of money from Russia.
I relinquish the balance of my asterisks!
