This is not going to be the most exciting blog post, I’ll warn you. There just isn’t much going on, and what is going on either is stuff I’ve previously blogged about already, or it just isn’t that interesting.
Tomorrow’s Willie Nelson concert at the Orpheum has been postponed.
WREG has coverage of the march to end gun violence that happened Downtown yesterday.
Another vintage Memphis item has popped up on eBay. It’s an authentic 1980s Mud Island T-shirt. They’re asking $36.99 for it.
Shelby County Health Officer Dr. Bruce Randolph said Thursday that if you are in a crowd of 100 people in Shelby County, 3 or 4 of them could be infected with COVID-19. Those of you in the process of deciding whether to attend large family holiday gatherings or Friendsgiving events might want to keep that statistic in mind.
I still want to get a group together to Lyft down to Hernando’s Hideaway in Whitehaven to check out Chicken Shit Bingo one of these Sundays. Probably not gonna be today though.
Here’s the weekly link to James Aycock’s COVID week in review. Notable: In two weeks, we are on track to surpass our highest COVID numbers from the summer. Also notable: Thanksgiving, when lots of family gatherings will occur, is two weeks away.

I had heard about it but hadn’t seen it. It appears that the Trumpster is no longer bothering to dye his hair orange. He knows it’s game over and just doesn’t care anymore. This is a sign of narcissistic collapse.
This could be why Trump’s mood is so glum: USA TODAY reports that Republican electors in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin won’t participate in a Trump-devised scheme to flip their states to vote for Trump.
The AP electoral map now has called North Carolina for Trump, making the race Biden 290, Trump 232 with 270 electoral votes needed to win and Georgia’s 16 electoral votes still unclaimed but leaning Biden.
Those who I talk to about my professional writing know that I’ve struggled to come up with an idea recipe. I finally hit it this morning, one that will allow me to generate a writing topic whenever I need. Pretty damn jazzed because I’ve been going through a major case of writer’s block since the beginning of October.
That’s it. Back tomorrow with more news.
