BOOK OF THE WEEK

ENTERTAINMENT OF THE WEEK
I had planned to write about a play I was going to see today; however, when I arrived Meadow Brook Theater in Rochester, Michigan, they had a mask requirements. I didn’t think it was going to be any fun sitting around in a theater wearing a mask.
I don’t have a problem, if you want to wear a mask; but, I prefer not to breathe in stale air. I understand if you live in a restrictive state; however, Michigan is a free state with no state mask requirements, although local authorities can still force masks on to people.
I’ve been a season ticket holder there for years, but this will be my last year. I prefer to go to a local movie theater where I am not forced to wear a mask.
As for you folks that think you have a right to force your weakness on to others, well:

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
It is never too late to have an adventure.
Define what is an adventure to you, then “Do It“
Capt. James T. Kirk (aka William Shatner)
STAR TREK ACTOR William Shatner has become the oldest person in space after blasting off from the Texas desert on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin rocket.
The actor, 90, reached the final frontier, delighting the millions of sci-fi fans who know him as Captain James T Kirk of the USS Enterprise.
Shatner and three other passengers lifted off in the fully automated, 60ft tall New Shepard rocket from Van Horn, west Texas, slightly later than planned in order to give experts more time to monitor winds in the area.
According to a live stream of the historic event, Shatner and his fellow passengers reached an altitude of roughly 350,000ft and a velocity of about 2,000mph.
Shatner was the second passenger to step out of the capsule and was embraced by a delighted Bezos.
The actor, who became emotional while speaking to the billionaire, said: “Everyone in the world needs to do this.”
Shatner said he was shocked by the difference in the blue sky of Earth and the vast blackness of space, adding: “It was so moving to me. This experience has been unbelievable.”
He appeared stunned in his conversation with Bezos, admitting he was taken aback by how quickly he reached space. “In a way it’s indescribable,” he said.
Shatner added it was “the most profound experience I can imagine”.
He said: “I am so filled with emotion about what just happened, it’s extraordinary. Extraordinary. I hope I never recover from this. I hope I can maintain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it. It’s so much larger than me.”
Further trying to explain the experience to Bezos, Shatner said: “It has to do with the enormity and the quickness and the suddenness of life and death.”
