Yamiche Alcindor questioning CDC director Robert Redfield.


Yamiche Alcindor
Spoke w/ CDC Director Robert Redfield in a small gaggle of reporters. He said he, CDC & Pres Trump are totally "aligned" on what needs to happen next. I asked, if you're so aligned, why is the president lashing out at CDC on Twitter? Redfield sort of shrugged & didn't answer.

It sounds like he got his marching orders from Trump.

Jeff Tiedrich post on school openings.


Jeff Tiedrich
am I understanding this correctly? covid-19 is so deadly that Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen had to be released from prison early, but it's also so benign that we need to be packing the nation's children back into their schools pronto? ok cool, that checks out

Trump is willing to sacrifice school children for his economy.

Arkansas - Covid 19 can be used as reason to request absentee ballot.

All Arkansans will be able to cite concerns about covid-19 as an excuse to vote by absentee ballot in the November elections, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Thursday.


“They just simply have a concern, a fear of going to the polling place because of the covid-19, that’s enough of a reason,” to vote absentee, Hutchinson said.


Thurston said voters can begin requesting absentee ballots from his office or the county clerk immediately. The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is Oct. 27, though voters can pick up an absentee ballot until Nov. 2, the day before the election.

All absentee ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted, Thurston said.
