Lazlo's Corner

I want to take this space to congratulate President Elect Joe Biden & Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris!

The next couple of months leading up to January 20th are likely to be strange, but we've gotten through the last 4 years, we'll get through this too.

One important thing to remember is that things will not change over night. Much like we needed patience waiting for the results, we will need patience for a return to normalcy... not the least because Covid-19 isn't going away, in fact, it is getting worse again.

But we must not confuse normalcy with complacency. At best, over time, Joe Biden will get things back to what they were before the last four years. We know we need to work to fix a lot of institutional problems that have been here long before 2016.

Now is the time to celebrate and for our fractured county to try to find unity, but we must not become complacent again.


We're going to do another benefit webathon on New Year's Eve for a musician in need.

"2020 Gets Canceled!'s New Year's Eve Extravaganza a benefit for musician Catherine Wacha"

The broadcast will also be a benefit for musician Catherine Wacha (along with a compilation), who is going through a tough time as she describes below.

There are 2 things we are looking for

1. performers who would like to perform via Skype on New Year's Eve

2. Previously unreleased songs for the compilation.

If interested in either (or both), please let me know

Thank you!

After battling Lupus and Chronic Kidney disease resulting in End Stage Renal failure, I was lucky enough to receive a much needed kidney transplant at the beginning of September. This was a wonderful gift that came at a less than ideal time. Due to being extremely high risk I had to take a leave from my job to stay safe from Covid-19. I was on unemployment until I had my surgery and am currently awaiting a ruling on my Social Security Disability Insurance eligibility and have no income. My wife and I have enough saving to get us through a few months but without my salary we are unable to afford out monthly expenses and my care beyond that.

Going back to my office at the height of cold and flu season with the added risk of Covid-19 is very dangerous for me. The post transplant medications heavily suppress my immune system so if I am exposed to Covid-19 I will almost certainly lose the newly transplanted kidney if I don't also lose my life.
