Jennifer Biggs of the DM reports that rumors of Molly’s La Casita’s demise are premature. Molly’s closed on January 6 as a money-saving measure, but the closure is not permanent. They’re just waiting out COVID, and they’re understandably tired.
From CNN: Pence has not ruled out 25th Amendment, source says. DO IT MIKE! DO IT DO IT! “Former Acting President” would look awfully strong on the resume should you decide to run in 2024. Also, how cool would it be to have “Mother” as First Lady for a week? Trump and Pence have not spoken since Wednesday’s breach of the Capitol and insiders say “Pence is finally getting a glimpse of Trump’s vindictiveness.”
Here’s a link to James Aycock COVID week-in-review summary. The main point is that there is not near enough testing and that those who are around other people frequently should get tested once a week. I would be happy to do that if it was free and I did not have to cross A.W. Willis, B.B. King, or G.E. Patterson to do so. Given the concentration of people who live (and work) down here, I think that is a totally reasonable request.

Since it’s a slow day news-wise, I thought I’d share with you how I’ve been doing writing professionally on Medium. This is a chart of my activity in the past 30 days:
The dots represent the days on which I posted. Last Saturday (January 2) I had ideas to do one post a day through Wednesday, January 6. Yesterday (January 9) I did another count and found I had ideas to do one post a day through Thursday, January 21. I am turning into an idea machine on there and am starting to get rewarded in terms of views, reads, and claps. I’m pretty excited!
Time to hit Publish on here and go work on some of those Medium posts. Back tomorrow with more news.
