  1. St Charles should have set up a satellite office near the hospitals to handle all their covid testing ED visits- this is just another “no-brainer” example of how the system is failing the citizens and promoting the virus.

    I visited a couple of clinics that handle covid tests today- my first thought- “this is ground zero” for a possible exposure ! Yet as I walked into the clinic all masked up- there were people sharing pens to complete questionnaires- lacking masks- grabbing items off the counter with bare hands !

    Shocking behavior by medical professionals to be sure !

    1. He’s a man
      With a plan
      Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Verse 2]
      Playing hard
      Talking fast
      Making sure that he won’t be the last
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Verse 3]
      Makes a deal
      With a smile
      Knowing all the time that his lie’s a mile
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Verse 4]
      Must be seen
      There’s no doubt
      He’s the coolest one with the biggest mouth
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Bridge]
      When you tell him he’s living fast
      He will say what do you know
      If you had my kind of cash
      You’d have more than one place to go, oh, ooh…
      [Verse 6]
      If he shakes
      On a bet
      He’s the kind of dude that won’t pay his debt
      Oh, He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Bridge]
      When you say that he’s living wrong
      He’ll tell you he knows he’s living right
      And you’d be a stronger man
      If you took Misstra Know-It-All’s advice, oh oh, ooh, mmm-mmm

      [Verse 7]
      He’s the man
      With a plan
      Got a counterfeit dollar in his hand
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      [Verse 8]
      Take my word
      Please beware
      Of a man that just don’t give a care, no
      He’s Misstra Know-It-All

      1. “Stevie Wonder’s first new album in ten years, A Time to Love, was released in October 2005 to lower sales than previous albums, and lukewarm reviews—most reviewers appearing frustrated at the end of the long delay to get an album”

        Seems Stevie is old news- failed to change with the times- ya don’t adapt- you die !
