Something To Think About - 9/2/20

With a dystopian look at the future in his novel “1984” George Orwell wrote: “Every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

Kudos to both the Democratic Governor of Wisconsin who quickly called out the national guard to quell the violent protests in Kenosha over the police shooting of Jacob Blake; and the Mayor of Kenosha who said “There is a process to investigate the shooting.

Dispite the CDC's call for schools to reopen under their guidelines a step towards better public health, the Federation of American teachers is calling for public strikes if they deem conditions warrant. We ask "what about the needs of the students and their parents?" For many school lunches and breakfasts may be the best nutrition they get all day and with two working parents unable to go to work and ill equiped to home school the socioeconomic divide will widen rapidly.
