  1. My family has been aware of racism more than most. We live in a predominately white higher middle class area. My kids endured excessive racism at school, on the bus and even within their friends group. We idly stood by not knowing what to do. I did speak to the high school principal calling him out once but it only made me feel better. Looking back it was my responsibility to protect my children from everything, including racism. There, I failed. When I was younger I thought that everyone had the same opportunity to achieve their level of success. As I aged and watched my children grow, I realized that was a "privileged" view. That was an "All lives matter" view. I was afforded the opportunity to any job I chose and college education. That is not available to everyone everywhere. I realize that it is everyone's responsibility to stamp out racism. That in of itself is not what BLM is all about. I'm a trusting person. I live next door to a city police commander and a state police officer. They are my friends. Regardless of their occupation, skin color, race or creed, I give everyone the benefit of the doubt but that is not what BLM is all about. I can understand the BLM movement. I was never told to be afraid of the police when I was growing up but have seen first hand racism in our local community from the police department. Black children are taught to distrust police and have a certain behavior around the police because they are fearful for their lives. That is the injustice that drives BLM. Look at the disproportionate number of police shootings per race. That is not a coincidence. Just today on national TV new, a young black girl asked a police office if he was going to hurt her. Thinking that was a possibility at such a young age is sad but a real fear. Is it a taught behavior, sure, but justified.
  2. Both Google and Apple are making changes to your phone's operating system. This week on my android devices a new item listed as Covid-19 Exposure Notifications exists on my devices. It looks like the default is off but from what I've gleaned this is just phase 1. From Google: more details

    Hand pain

    I'm not a MD or profess to know much about medicine. Have you tried ibuprofen before playing? Ice after? Congrats on the great round!
  4. I'm sure you get more use out of it than most, GIR and all that. Actually that's a good testament that you'd buy it again.
  5. While I agree with you, I've never experienced this phenomena.
  6. Ya but PA didn't almost go to war over Toledo. The sayin' here is O How I Hate Ohio. just sayin' 😉
  7. So far all of the courses I've played with friends have had a plastic barrier between the golfers. I'm not comfortable riding w/o it. I have a 3 wheel trolley and I'm not afraid to use it! I have hand sanitizer in my bag but I have forgotten to use it. I'm playing Thursday, I'll make a note. pics please...
