Good Morning, Indian River County!
To our friends of the Jewish faith, a Blessed Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and most important holiday of the year. May you and yours be inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year!
The strangest baseball regular season ever has drawn to an end. Basketball and hockey are finishing their playoffs in a bubble. Football is being played to an ever-diminishing audience. But politics, older than all the other sports, is in full swing! President Trump has announced an eminently qualified jurist, Amy Coney Barrett, as his nominee to the Supreme Court seat vacated by the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It appears that the Democrats will abandon their challenges to her nomination on abortion and religious grounds, and concentrate on portraying her as a threat to Obamacare, which itself is of dubious popularity and effectiveness, especially after Pres. Trump's Executive Order on pre-existing medical conditions.
And tomorrow night, former Vice President Joe Biden takes the lid off, steps out of his bunker and faces what we expect will be non-softball questions for the first time since his nomination. Can Biden last the full 90 minutes? Can he withstand both Chris Wallace's questions and Donald Trump's challenges and attacks? Tune in Tuesday night and find out...Biden's performance may well determine the election. Remember that Ronald Reagan effectively ended Walter Mondale's campaign with one debate answer in 1984!
