This is a video of the rover NASA Rover landing on Mars and a 12 second clip of the first ever audio recording from Mars.

This brought back a lot of memory's for me growing up in the 50s and 60s, the era of B Sci Fi movies about invaders from Mars and other planets. At night, we would lie back on the roof tops of our NYC apartment building, stare up at the sky and hold countless in depth conversations about Mars and Martians. Orson Welles of course did the famous War of the Worlds on Halloween night, 1938. My Dad was about 9 years old when Welles threw the country into terror and panic with is radio show.

Vaccinations and Confusion

   West Virginia ranks as one of highest vaccination rates in the world yet the distribution of those vaccines here are in question. According to statistics (remember when they actually meant something?) the Eastern Panhandle is lagging in how many get the vaccination.

Since we try to always report only the facts we won't engage in speculation or guesses but it is being investigated now and we will wait for the facts to come out... if they ever really do.

It puts pressure on banking to discriminate against whole industries the government dislikes such as fire arm manufacturers. Trump counter acted the rule and Biden now wants to bring it back.
