Kansas City New Year's Eve 2021: It All Goes Back To Normal At Midnight, Right?!?!

This is kind of like an anti-NYE and it was spooky watching empty streets in Times Square NYC.

Still, this blog isn't for complaining about things we could never change . . . It's far more fun to complain about stuff we could totally change but don't.

But I digress . . .

This was an okay year for the discourse even if a bunch of news outlets went bust and generally people stopped trusting the news altogether.

Still our mission to make this a useful corner of the Internets persists for as long as humanly possible.

Accordingly, we share these local news items to keep our blog community informed as the clock strikes down.

All Better Now?!?!

A Better 2021?

We can only hope that "next year all our troubles will be out of sight." Given our present circumstances, I am doubtful.

People truly believe that fictitious numbers have an impact on their life. Today is no different from yesterday. Same opportunities that exist today were there yesterday... but I get it. New Years is more of a social thing.
