Happy Fourth of July
BOOK OF THE WEEK
Folks, this little book makes statistics so easy to understand and is written in simple everyday language.
If you want to stop being fooled, at least by statistics. you owe it to yourself and society to wise up a bit about what you are so often being told with statistics, graphs, etc.
If ever there was a time for the average person to apply some critical thinking to what they are being told, it is now.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
The Morning Show
I’ve watch both seasons of this two season show (A third season has been approved) and liked some episodes. The acting is very good. However, this show is definitely not a comedy.
The Morning Show is an American drama television series starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, that premiered on Apple TV+ on November 1, 2019.
The series is inspired by Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.

JOKE OF THE WEEK
Which are you?
I’ve heard it said that where you stand on an issue depends upon where you happen to be sitting at the moment.
People who think differently than you, have their reasons. It is not because they are evil or stupid.
If you must say something controversial, please do it respectfully.
