·       Maybe a good time to reprise a couple of old favorites. Ronald Reagan’s story of the Republican politician giving a stump speech and Bob Hope asking about Zombies.

·       Dr. Fauci, who can’t seem to pass up a camera, for some reason isn’t willing to comment on Gov. Cuomo’s foul-up.

·       Accidents in the workplace can really cause that Workmen’s Comp to skyrocket. 30 Taliban militants were killed during a bomb making class in an Afghan mosque. Just a wild guess, but I’d say they got a “F” in lab. Just asking…ever heard of anything like that happening in a Presbyterian Church? Neither have I.

·       Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s impeachment vote has apparently caused a rift in the family. That’s too bad, because he’ll probably be spending a lot of time with them after the next election.

·       Dr. Copper, one of our foremost economists, seems to be predicting an improving economy.

·       Who would have thought it? What a surprise! Mayor Bettlejuice Lightfoot says “bail reform” has caused more crime.

·       Democrats vow to “follow the science.” That is of whichever union donates the most money
