Meet the Arizona nurse who stood up to the thugs

Her name is Lauren Leander and she is a 27-year-old nurse in Phoenix. She volunteered to work extra shifts during this crisis, and got a couple of other nurses to stand with her as thug protesters cursed, insulted and brushed closely by her during their astroturfed "protests". BTW, he father is a broadcaster for the Phoenix Suns.

Lauren Leander is AWESOME.


The President should lead by example and drink a bottle of Clorox

Don't leave it to others to show the efficacy of a cure that you yourself suggested could work. Be a real leader at a time of crisis and do the right thing by being the first to try this potential solution to the COVID-19 pandemic. Your base would love you even more (if that's possible) and Democrats like me would be impressed (for the first time ever) by the courage you would show by this selfless act.

Iconic City Lights bookstore on verge of closing


San Francisco's iconic City Lights bookstore is on the brink of collapse as the coronavirus pandemic is forcing the business to keep its doors shut.
Elaine Katzenberger, who is the Publisher and CEO of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers -- both the store and its publishing arm -- has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the $300,000 that is needed to keep the business afloat.
"City Lights is faced with formidable challenges at present: Our bookstore has been closed to the public since March 16, and must remain closed for an indefinite period of time," Katzenberger wrote on April 9.



Ferlinghetti - one of the founders of the Beat Movement is still going at 101 - but the iconic bookstore he founded is in trouble. A GoFundme page has been set up:

This bookstore is a living monument to an important part of American literary and cultural history. Hope people can help.
