Tuesday’s video: I see a big backlash coming

Some signs of a backlash brewing

South Philly residents surround Columbus statue as demonstrations ...
Over and over, I keep hearing from people totally fed up with the riots, anarchy, and selective destruction of history.   
Over the last couple of days, I saw a couple of examples of what we will call the mother of all backlashes this November.
In Virginia, we saw a march in support of the police:    
Hundreds of people marched in the streets of Manassas Saturday afternoon to show their support for law enforcement officers as police departments across the country come under unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Participants in the event, sponsored by the organization We Back Blue, gathered at Nelson Park and then marched down Grant Avenue to the Old Manassas Courthouse holding signs that read “We Support Our Law Enforcement,” “No Police, No Peace,” and “Law & Order.”
In Oklahoma, some people learned that “The Sooner State” will enforce the law:  
A district attorney in Oklahoma hit several protesters with charges of assault, rioting, and terrorism in connection to recent violent protests that took place in Oklahoma City.
My guess is that there are other examples that we have not heard about.
As someone said, we’ve reached a flash point.  The American people will stand up for their country and the left is in for a major shock in November.
As I told a local police officer, the public supports you and the fine work that you do.

A word about Lena Horne (1917-2010)

Lena Horne, one of the best female vocalists ever, was born on this day in 1917..........she passed away at age 92 in 2010.

She had a great voice and very elegant look!

Her story was rather remarkable:
"Lena Horne, who was the first black performer to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio and who went on to achieve international fame as a singer, died on Sunday night at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York."(NYT)
 It's hard to pick a favorite song but her version of "Where or When" is great:

1962: Koufax and the first no-hitter

Related image

On this day in 1962, Sandy Koufax of the LA Dodgers pitched the first of his 4 no-hitters.    He beat the Mets and struck out 13 in a 5-0 victory.

Between 1962 and 1966, when he retired at age 32, Koufax was just overpowering.  He led the LA Dodgers to World Series victories in 1963 and 1965.  He pitched 4 no-hitters, including perfect game in 1965, and won 3 Cy Young Awards.

It all started with this no-hitter in 1962!
