BTW, that was on the interstate 35W bridge that collapsed some years ago, which was a very traumatic and tragic situation. Many lives were lost, and I'm so happy that none were lost in this incident.

What with covid19, and this happening, we are so on edge around here. I live in a small town west about 30 miles from the Twin Cities, but fear for family nearby the core of the violence. My brother, a hunter, has his shotguns loaded (though I beg him to reconsider) in case of intruders. He is a liberal, and doesn't like neo-nazi types.

*Maybe they are rifles, I don't know what he uses to hunt deer and get venison, ducks, and the occasional pheasant and grouse. Anyway, it is not just the right wingers who have guns, my bro is prepared for anyone who might attempt insurgence, wouldn't want to do it, but... the insurgent assholes better not mess with him. He has a job in necessary care, so can't protect his home, night shift, so my poor sis-in-law can hardly sleep at night, but she knows how to shoot.

Ok, that was a bit over dramatic, like a wild west story, it hasn't gone totally mayhem here. Got off on a story telling mode, but it is true that the guns are loaded, unfortunately.

The Australian US correspondent absolutely BLASTED Trump on the news last night.

I wish I could find the clip! 

Basically the Australian reporters were bashed by the police when they instituted an immediate curfew - no notice to anyone - just so Trump could walk across to the Church of the Presidents and hold a bible for a photo op.

Yeah, the Bishop of that church was not pleased by it.

This is all so horrifying. That Mr. Floyd died by murder by our police is bad enough, but the looting and pillaging has spread over to many cities is excruciating.

I hate it that he was killed. I hate it that the riots, now are hurting people and businesses that had nothing to do with it.

Been crying a lot, sorry.
