This has been the heaviest week for the bad news I can recall and since I closely follow journalism developments, I like others agree that the news dam is breaking and some Americans fear that as Election Day grows near, that the next few months may become progressively crazier, including more blood, sweat, and tears.

The NRA will go away if the New York State Attorney General has anything to say.

A stay at home order was lifted and The Big Apple has officially opened. I LOVE NY whenever the weather warms up and public beaches are also free. Nearby my City Island home is Orchard Beach.
