Lumes Pancake House shooting: 5 shot, 1 fatally, outside Morgan Park restaurant, Chicago police say – ABC7 Chicago

Black lives matter. Tell that to the ubiquitous shooters.

Trevaughn Roberson, a relative of one of the women who was shot, said shootings are commonplace in the area.

“I won’t lie to you, it’s kinda normal for me. But it, for it to hit home, you know, it’s always that much worse. Of course I’m affected by it, yeah,” Roberson said. “This goes on all day, everyday. Everybody knows it. I just hope for better days.”

No one is in custody. Area Two detectives are investigating.

Will Lori Lightweight show up and berate citizens for not naming the shooters?

Trump Outside-In Mideast Strategy Takes To the Sky

Things moving along in the Mideast:

President Trump’s top Mideast negotiator, Jared Kushner, and top Israeli and American officials are scheduled to board an El Al plane tomorrow to make the first direct commercial flight between Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi. The historic trip will vindicate the outside-in approach to peacemaking, long championed by Mr. Kushner.

Monday’s two-and-a-half-hour flight comes after the United Arab Emirates announced earlier in August its intention to fully normalize relations with Israel. On board, in addition to Mr. Kushner, will be President Trump’s national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, and an Israeli delegation headed by Mr. O’Brien’s counterpart, Meir Ben-Shabbat.

Anticipating their arrival — and despite background noises about a possible deal-breaking dispute involving an American sale of F35 fighter planes to the Emirates — the UAE officially scrapped a 1972 law that banned doing business with Israeli firms.

New CDC report says 94% of COVID deaths had underlying conditions, only 6% died from COVID alone

We have heard from Day One about underlying health condition as heightening risk, but 94%?

According to the report, only 6% of the COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. list COVID-19 as the only cause of death. 94% of COVID-19 deaths involved at least one other underlying health condition, and on average involved “2.6 additional conditions or causes of death.”


According to the CDC, 9,683 people have died in the United States having only COVID-19 listed on their death certificate as cause of death. At the time the CDC report was released, 161,392 deaths had been attributed to COVID-19 in the U.S.

The top underlying conditions:

  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Respiratory failure
  • Hypertensive disease
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular and unspecified dementia
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Heart failure
  • Renal failure
  • Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events

So “stay healthy” means do what you can to counter the above risks with a view to avoid or lessen candidacy for the new Big C.
