Pandemic, snow, insurrection, freedom of the press challenged.

We talked about the "vertical spike" in the pandemic. Dr. Fuaci sees hope for the omicron variant to "come down rather quickly" after it peaks.

Pickles of the North talked about the Blizzard of '88.

We talked about a challenge to freedom of the press that's coming from a right-wing group and a New York State judge who doesn't seem to have a grasp of the First Amendment.

We talked about CNN's New Year's coverage including messages from Ben Dover, Seymour Butts and others of that ilk.
