Situational Analysis – February 6, 2021

Well hello, Monday! Over the weekend, we passed Ronald Reagan’s 110th birthday and the 69th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth ascending to the throne. We lost Christopher Plummer, age 91 on Friday and George Shultz, age 100 and President Reagan’s Secretary of State on Sunday. Sadly, we also lost 4 skiers in their 20’s to a killer avalanche in Millcreek Canyon. RIP. 

Oh, and Utah was trending across social media sites, but not in a good way as a school in North Ogden first allowed and then disallowed parents from opting their kids out of learning about Black History this month. Congressman Blake Moore weighed in, expressing his disappointment and saying that “it is crucial that we embrace our shared history.” 

If you only have time for one thing today: Watch this Toyota ad about Jessica Long, double amputee, winner of 23 Olympic medals and adoptee from Russia. All the feels.
