City Council Special Meeting - Nov 16 2020

Wednesday was the deadliest day yet of the coronavirus pandemic. Johns Hopkins University says there were three-thousand-157 deaths in the U.S. from COVID-19, an all-time high that eclipses the previous record set in April. The head of the CDC is warning of a sharp rise in coronavirus deaths in the months to come.        Two of President Trump's loudest supporters plan to lead a demonstration at the Georgia state capitol today. Attorneys Lin Wood and Sidney Powell urged the crowd at a rally Wednesday to join them today. Wood told the crowd to "Stay mad as hell!" Their anger is aimed at Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.        Barack Obama is telling progressives that slogans like "defund the police" can hurt their cause. The former president gave an interview on Snapchat's "Good Luck America" that was released yesterday and said such phrases could drive away moderates and cost Democrats elections. His comments drew swift backlash from progressives.        The NBA is already dealing with COVID-19 issues before the season gets going. Multiple reports say, out of 546 tests taken, 48 players tested positive during the week of November 24th through the 30th. Some positives were expected as players return to their markets.       The House of Representatives will likely vote today to ban the private ownership of big cats like lions and tigers. The Big Cat Public Safety Act would let existing facilities keep their animals. "Tiger King" star Carole Baskin told USA Today she was thrilled the measure was finally getting a vote.       The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is all lit up in downtown New York. The annual tree lighting ceremony aired on NBC last night, and the 75-foot Norway spruce is now sparkling with over 50-thousand lights and a crystal star on top. No visitors were allowed for the ceremony because of the pandemic.
