During their chat, he spoke about whether he would consider running for Texas governor or another political run.

“I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me. Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested,” he explained.

He added that he wants to “rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans,” recognizing the divide in the country, and how citizens “don’t trust each other.”

“As I move forward in life, yes, I am gonna consider leadership roles where I can be most useful. I’d love to.

Passive Approach Can Prevent Drawing More Attention

We work hard for our businesses, and those of you who started your own enterprise are even more deeply concerned about it than others. Which is why criticism of your business can be so frustrating.

Nobody likes to be torn apart in public, especially when a bad review can cost you money.  Customers, patients and clients will read online opinions and take them into account when hiring somebody. Your enterprise is no exception.

And it generally seems unfair – and often is. Some people are never satisfied.  Some fixate on the problem they had with your business and blow it way out of proportion.  Some are right to be angry but can’t let it go. Some are nuts.

But ignore it and move on.

I know this is difficult to do. We always feel better standing up for ourselves.  And if we don’t point out the

Boise to crack down on people not following COVID restrictions

After nearly eight months, Boise will start enforcing its own health orders.

Mayor Lauren McLean announced Thursday that the city is issuing a health order that will “create consequences for individuals and businesses who knowingly violate orders,” including issuing citations or even arresting people who do not comply with a business’s protocols but refuse to leave.

Boiseans will be able to file complaints against businesses where employees or customers won’t follow health orders, McLean said in a news release. Businesses that pose “a clear and immediate threat” will have their city licenses suspended for at least 10 days on the first violation.

That’s a change in Boise, where officials have repeatedly declined to enforce orders on mask wearing and social distancing, instead opting to educate violators.

As of last week, the city had not issued any citations for failing to wear masks, a requirement McLean put in place in June,

Kansas aims to boost virus testing, but strategy unfinished

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Nearly two months after Gov. Laura Kelly announced that Kansas would develop a “unified” strategy to ramp up coronavirus testing, the program is enough of a work in progress that even some of the state’s contractors don’t yet have all the details.

A Republican legislative leader involved in testing discussions contends that the Democratic governor’s administration moved too slowly in rolling out the strategy and isn’t focused enough on making sure Kansas has a healthy workforce so that businesses can stay open. Kelly dismisses the criticism, and officials and contractors are confident that testing will be ramped up before the year ends.

Kansas is under immense pressure. The state health department reported more than 19,000 new confirmed and probable coronavirus cases in the seven days ending Wednesday – the equivalent of one in every 150 Kansas residents testing positive. Hospitals are struggling to handle the surge
