When Cities Burn…


It was exciting and disappointing as SpaceX and NASA tried to return man to space from our shores yesterday.Weather kept the event from happening, but the excitement was palpable.And we get to do it all over again Saturday afternoon with liftoff scheduled at 3:21pm EDT.Jim Banke and I will bring you the countdown and a recap of the mission beginning at 3:06pm.

IN A HANDBASKET we’ll try to turn one around and are seeing steps at doing just that.A PA school board has rejected a textbook because of political indoctrination.

I believe the president has overstepped on this one.He wants to take presidential action over TWITTER’s suppression of free speech.He plans to sign an executive order today.While it remains to be seen just what the president’s order would try to do, it seems an unwise idea on the surface.

A young man has died as a result of police action in Minneapolis.Now Minneapolis and Los Angeles are burning.There was no time for investigation, no chance for the justice system to work and the mobs became judge, jury and executioner.When cities burn, it’s not about the victim.

Florida has a look at April revenue numbers and the impact of the coronavirus is significant.Well, it’s not the virus so much as it was government’s reaction to it.

Florida Today’s Dave Berman join us us for our final hour today.Dave covers county government and we have plenty of recent developments to delve into.
