My Halloween Zip Line for Social Distancing



People are so clever!

89-Year-Old Pizza Deliveryman Gets Surprise $12K Tip

The act of kindness can be priceless. But for Derlin Newey, a pizza delivery driver from Roy, Utah, it was actually worth $12,069.

According to NBC affiliate KSL, the 89-year-old deliveryman for Papa Johns Pizza took the 30-hours-a-week gig to make some extra money because his monthly bills cost more than his social security covered.

One of his customers, Carlos Valdez, began recording Newey's deliveries to his family's front door and sharing them on the social media platform TikTok.

Known for saying, “Hello, are you looking for some pizza?” when he delivers, Newey soon became a fan-favorite to the Valdez's 53,000 followers.

Good lawd, what kind of country are we that an 89 y.o. has to work to make ends meet. And thank you to the kind souls who raised the money so this man has a little breathing room.

Mary Trump Sues President and Family, Claiming Fraud of Millions

Source: NYT

In her best-selling memoir, Mary L. Trump, President Trump’s niece, told a family story that detailed the ways in which she claims her relatives — the president among them — tricked, bullied and ultimately cheated her out of an inheritance worth tens of millions of dollars.

On Thursday, more than two months after the book was published and a little more than one month before the election, Ms. Trump told her story again — this time in a lawsuit.

The suit, filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, accused Mr. Trump, his sister Maryanne and their brother Robert, who died in August, of fraud and civil conspiracy. It seeks to recover the millions of dollars Ms. Trump claims to have lost.

In its first sentence, the lawsuit says that, for the Trumps, “fraud was not just the family business — it was a way of life.” Beginning in the 1980s, the suit contends, the president and his siblings took control of the New York City real estate empire their father, Fred Trump Sr., had built and “exploited it to enrich themselves” to the detriment of everyone around them.

Everybody's here!

I have often wondered how Tobin S. is doing.

His last post was in August 2019.

I really enjoyed his posts and his journey (both in life, and on the road)

Allegations of racism have marked Trump's presidency and become key issue as election nears

In unguarded moments with senior aides, President Trump has maintained that Black Americans have mainly themselves to blame in their struggle for equality, hindered more by lack of initiative than societal impediments, according to current and former U.S. officials.

After phone calls with Jewish lawmakers, Trump has muttered that Jews “are only in it for themselves” and “stick together” in an ethnic allegiance that exceeds other loyalties, officials said.

Trump’s private musings about Hispanics match the vitriol he has displayed in public, and his antipathy to Africa is so ingrained that when first lady Melania Trump planned a 2018 trip to that continent he railed that he “could never understand why she would want to go there.”

When challenged on these views by subordinates, Trump has invariably responded with indignation. “He would say, ‘No one loves Black people more than me,’ ” a former senior White House official said. The protests rang hollow because if the president were truly guided by such sentiments he “wouldn’t need to say it,” the official said. “You let your actions speak.”
