BROADWAY WORLD. Mark Blum, veteran stage actor who was unforgettable as Gary Glass in Desperately Seeking Susan, died this week at 69 of COVID-19. Blum was a terrific actor, widely respected, and when I met him in 2010 at what now feels like the last, most complete Susan reunion, he was a prince, truly.
My video of him:
TWITTER: It's a very simple ad. Trump hates it, hates it to the extent of sending cease-and-desist letters. Share it everywhere:
CNN: James Dyson designed a new ventilator in 10 days, and is committed to creating 15,000 of them to fight COVID-19.
EXTRATV: Kathy Griffin is unbearably ill, possibly with COVID-19, but can't get tested. She is using her platform to rail against Trump's provable lies.
POLITICO: The San Francisco Bay area is the nation's bellwether on social distancing.
TWITTER: He's got Trump's voice down:
God only brought one guy back from the dead on Easter. Trump is here to bring back the whole economy on Easter 2020.

NBC NEWS: Fed Chairman Jerome Powell says what you probably already guessed:
We may well be in a recession.
But I would point to the difference between this and a normal recession. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with our economy. Quite the contrary. We are starting from a very strong position.

YOUTUBE: Dua Lipa's “Break My Heart” is here, with its “Another One Bites the Dust” bassline and other delish references. She's great, no?
