A spirited image of health care professionals, flight crew and passengers on a recent Southwest Airlines flight from Georgia, to help with the coronavirus outbreak in New York, has gone viral on social media.
On March 27, a group of medical professionals traveled from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to LaGuardia Airport to pitch in on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic, a spokesperson for Southwest told Fox News. Just before takeoff, an airline employee snapped a shot of the travelers – some wearing face masks and gloves – throwing up their hands in the shape of a heart from their seats on the plane.
Even with the good news, the Cuomo brothers seem to be stumbling over each other like the two stooges.
Andrew said that his mother, age 88, was at Chris’s house two weeks ago.
“I said, ‘That was a mistake,’” the governor recalled during his press conference Tuesday. “I said, ‘Chris, you can’t have mom at the house,’ and he said, ‘No, no, no. Mom is lonely. She wants to be at the house. I feel bad she’s cooped up in the apartment.’”
NYC should know that as bad as it is, this too shall pass. For some reason, I have been referring to my family in recent posts. My parents were a mixed marriage, my father was a Litvak from Brooklyn and my mother was a Galitzianer from the Bronx. FYI, Litvaks have a reputation for dour seriousness. My father, although on any given day might display a good sense of humor, could also be a bit overbearing, truly a Litvak. My Mother, though not very demonstrative herself, mentioned a relative or two that definitely couldn’t be Litvaks, definitely Galitzianers. One of which was my Great Uncle Jules.
I think that I should show you some of Great Uncle Jules’ work as it could cheer up NYC a little. Even during WWII, there were USO shows to help the troops moral. This virus thing will be over and New York will be New York again. In this clip, Great Uncle Jules is singing and dancing with two other guys in NYC. Those were the days. They’ll be back.
