Curmudgeon’s Corner: Fully Half

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan continue blowing off the 2020 review in favor of discussing breaking news events. Trump is kicked off social media. The second impeachment. More on the insurrection at the Capitol. Security precautions for the upcoming inauguration. It has been another busy week. Maybe things will slow down once Biden is President? We’ll find out soon enough. In the mean time, another busy show.
