The election count continues as tempers start to flare across the nation.
Americans might get results today, just in time for a tumultuous weekend and the increasing risk of more civil unrest.
Here at home, check the trend that local media still want to downplay and politicos politely ignore . . .
And this leads us to an important message sent our way by a kindly reader . . .
"TKC, just wanted to know if you've heard anything about more shut downs. There's no way I'll be prepared for it. Last time around I went through my life savings before there was any help and now we're barely at the break even point. We're doing a good job with masks and new protocols. I can only hope that will avoid another lock down. If that happens it would be a disaster for me, my family and my employees . Please tell the mayor that he should protect small business in Kansas City, not just his career in D.C."
First and foremost, despite rising numbers, more deaths and hospitalizations . . . There is no official word about another lock down.
However . . .
Both Veep Biden and Mayor Q have championed an "aggressive" policy in fighting the virus and more restrictions aren't out of the question.
Still . . . And I hope this provides some assurance, complying with mask orders and all of the other onerous city hall rules & regs is a good way to stay on the right side of the Health Department for better or worse and given that they have increasingly targeted small biz owners who defy local mandates.
Meanwhile . . .
Here's a glimpse at the election count outrage reaching a crescendo and certainly setting the tone for this cowtown as well . . .
