April is going to seem even longer than March. How do I know? Simple: SiriusXM satellite radio has added the Billy Joel Channel back into rotation. Maybe someone—Al Yankovic perhaps—can offer some modifications, such as 'We Didn't Start the Fire—China Did!' Or 'The Great Suburban Showdown in t...

Somebody smashed a large window at Brick Wheels and stole an expensive fat tire bike.
It was found today by Eric Sika...in the Boardman River.

I was out paddle boarding tonight and came across a pretty sweet fat tire bike in 3ft of water. Although I’m looking for a new mountain bike, this one might be a bit out of my price range! Paddled over a mile with it on my board! Get a hold of me!

An OMP Voice from the South Pacific Amidst Growing COVID-19 Concerns

Peninsula Community Library director Vicki Shurly and husband Bob are aboard what may be the last cruise ship floating on the ocean, the Norwegian Jewel The ship's crew is looking for a port that will allow them to dock, and ultimately get their passengers home.

Thankfully there are no cases of coronavirus on board

Vicky has been sending dispatches about their adventure to the Old Mission Gazette. I'm linking to the last of the three dispatches because it includes a link to the first two.

Thanks to Vicki and the Old Mission Gazzette.

TentCraft | COVID-19 Mobile Testing Tents

TentCraft employs 75 people in Traverse City. They specialize in making tents featuring company/organization logos for trade shows and special events. Right now business has stopped as special events such as the NCAA tournament and SXSW festival have cancelled.

In response, TentCraft has created drive-thru tents to serve as testing sites outside hospitals and other health facilities that are trying to restrict the number of people allowed inside.

Great solution!

Please share with any friends, family, or colleagues in the healthcare industry or involved with government emergency programs.

Bonus TWIP. Social Distancing Edition!!

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/03/mid-week-in-pictures-social-distancing-edition.php

So if we're all keeping proper social distance, why the excessive concern about toilet paper then? And 'social distancing'? What's the big deal? It's what writers call 'Monday.' Also Tuesday through Friday. And the weekend, when you're too grumpy to interact. 'Shelter in place' for introverts with a...

Nashville Business Owners Defy Mayor and Remain Open! - Say Order to Close Bars and Restaurants on Broadway Is UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Attorney General Dana Nessel is holding a 12:30 press conference re: the Governor's order for Michigan bars and restaurants to close down as of 3pm today. (Delivery and carry-out will be permitted).

A caller asked if this is constitutional and what penalty a bar/restaurant owner would pay for ignoring the order. I'm guessing that will come out at the press conference. We'll report back on this issue tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile in Nashville...

Earlier Sunday Nashville Mayor John Cooper called for all bars on lower Broadway to close and all restaurants to hold no more than 50 patrons. According to The Tennessean: The city’s move, which was praised by some but rejected by at least one prominent area businessman, includes: closing bars thr...

So let's see if I have this right: washing your hands vigorously with soap and water kills the coronavirus because soap shatters the lipid membranes of the virus? In other words, the virus is fat. Can it be fat-shamed then? Is the CDC not recommending this because fat-shaming is not PC? I'm skeptica...

Forget fake news. The media has come up with fake math.

Get your popcorn ready, because today is the Nevada caucuses, which features only a lot of old rich white people in the Democratic field, which is not supposed to happen in this age of intersectional diversity. I think the DNC ought to disqualify the entire field and start over, on the grounds that....

To paraphrase Will Rogers, it's no trouble being a humorist when you have Joe Biden working for you. 'Lying dog-faced pony soldier'??? This is going to go down in the annals of all-time political gaffes. It's the verbal equivalent of Michael Dukakis riding in a tank, or Gary Hartpence sailing on the...

Now that you've had this anti marijuana legalization person on your show a couple of times are you going to get an unbiased pro legalization person. This guy needs to be fact checked.

Dear Ron, I like your show. It is fun and informative to listen while I am in my car. It is great to learn more about this area that I love so much. I am curious though. I trust that management is conservative politically so I wonder if you are in any way instructed to be pro-Trump or do you personally like such a horrible human being?
Where do you people get this BS about Democrats let born babies die and why the hell would you believe something like that? Are you really that brainwashed or stupid?
Thank you for telling the beautiful story of the Kornusky family visiting Mackinac Island! Mackinac Island and its people are the best -- I always think of the island as my second home, feeling fully embraced by it's beauty and kind people💖💖
