Good morning, all,

Is acting governor Potter's press conference that is being held at Government House at noon today (now!) being broadcast somewhere? Radio??

I've been scanning all the local stations and haven't found it so far. Of course that could mean he just didn't bother to show up on time.

Thanks, Jane,

If I find out anything, I will post it...probably just be a lot of hot air...lots of words, no action.

Supposedly, it was to be held at noon.

Of course, Mapp is off island, (big surprise) enjoying festivities in NYC for Labor Day weekend.

Y'all stay safe out there!

His off-island "press conferences" are never disappointing.

I managed to get a little of it before the station interrupted it so the Beloved Felon could do his show. From what I did hear you didn't miss anything.

More empty words. The police are overwhelmed, and are admitting it publicly, though everyone already knows that.

I have seen many people calling for National Guard and Martial Law on social media. So quickly people want to give up their rights in name of safety. No thank you.

And if martial law or National Guard were imposed, there goes our tourism economy. Somebody already used the phrase war zone. Tourists don't go to war zones. It will soon be on national media, and it will be hard for our Tourism Dept to give reassuring assurance about safety, IMO.

Stateside news is preoccupied with Donald a Trump, police killing people, the Fed raising interest rates and that clown hypocrite refusing to issue marriage licenses in KY. Unless a tourist is killed no one cares sadly.

"Stateside news is preoccupied with Donald a Trump"
Donald J. Trump. Don't butcher the name of the next President!

"Unless a tourist is killed no one cares sadly."
Well that's just not true. Jamie Cocaine (STJ) wasn't a tourist, he was here to work at a yacht club. Neither ATF Agent William Clark, nor the guy he killed, Marcus Sukow were tourists. James Malfetti was not a tourist, though U.S. Senators intervened on his behalf.

You don't need to be a tourist to garner nationwide attention if killed. You just need to not be black/brown.

I stand corrected on the brown/black part and wholeheartedly agree. I am actually looking forward to a Trump presidency. It will be "yuge" for comedy points.

Speaking of butchering a name, Cockayne was his surname.

It was completely intentional on my part. Quite the pun if you know the backstory.
