Curmudgeon’s Corner: March of Icons

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about the latest “Infrastructure Week”, the arguments on impeachment hearings, and Biden’s “unity” posture. They also talk about​ trade wars, the economy, and Bill and Hillary’s visit to Seattle. On the non-political front, a little bit on scheduling meetings across time zones, and a horrible scam about a bogus bleach cure that has been going around.
