Monday update

Sad to hear of the passing of University of Memphis football great Danton Barto. He was a star linebacker for the team then known as the Memphis State Tigers during the time I was in grad school there. He died of COVID this week. He and his wife had talked about whether to get vaccinated but decided not to. Info on where to get vaccinated in Shelby County

If you haven’t voted in the Memphis Flyer’s Best of Memphis 2021 poll, you have until 5 PM Wednesday to get that done.

Be careful if you have to be outside: The forecast calls for heat indexes of 107 today through Wednesday.

Today is Cuban Sandwich Day. My top recommendation would be the Torta Cubana (pork, ham, grilled chicken, Milanese, egg) at Maciel’s.

The Pfizer COVID vaccine was granted full approval by the FDA this morning. SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS

That’s it. Slow news day but that’s typical for a Monday. Back tomorrow with more news.
