Labor Day marked the end of summer, schools restarting, and this year the kick-off of the final push toward the November general election. Sadly, the coronavirus has not let up: number of people infected 29M/ 6.7M (world/US) and died 926K/198K.
Despite many are suffering from the pandemic, some are trying to change the world. The general election is a case in point. The American people have to decide if they want to stay the course or a new commander-in-chief.
And between status quo and change, where is the balance? Looking at the numbers, a large percentage of the American voters are self declared independents. So large that their numbers are greater than either of the major parties. But does this mean change will happen? Not necessarily.
This week also was the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack. The occasion still stir up emotions for those lived through that tragic experience. It almost made me forgot the Covid-19 for a moment. And finally, I said goodbye to my plain old telephone at home.
Stay safe & have a nice week.
