Thoughts While Shaving for June 10

Seems there is a battle ongoing between the NC Legislature and the Governor on regulation related to coronavirus. … Numbers continue to climb, locally and statewide … Wonder if there was not a political race looming just weeks, months away, if the differences would be less? Just wondering out loud … no idea who is right and who is wrong … guess it is determined to a great degree if you prefer better health or more commerce … and there are strong arguments for both. … (In the world we live in today, everything is related to politics).

As of early this AM, 969 deaths recorded statewide, 114,000 in the US and 404,000 worldwide…

When I was in the political arena … eeeons ago … I disliked ‘gridlock’, but have come to the conclusion … it is not bad … in the political environment we operate in today. … Disagree??? understand … room for all.

Weather forecast indicates a better chance for rain over the next week or so … Mostly cloudy today with a high near 80, windy and a 60% chance of rain.

I am and have been a huge fan of local radio … hometown radio, and there are less outlets today than yesteryear. … Thinking back over the years, locally … Rudy Hickman, Norgie Hester, Tommy Covington at WBLA … that was the ‘crew’ when I arrived in the early ’60s.

Remember Troy McPherson at WTAB, Tabor City: Al Kahn, WAGR, Lumberton: Ben Johnson (Bladen County native) at WAGR, WBLA and WKLM … and the one and only Don Chase, longtime early morning man at WKLM in Fayetteville? I know I left some out … not intentionally … it’s a memory thing. … For newcomers, of those I mentioned, all deceased except Norgie, Don Chase and myself … and only Don still active…
