8am hour -- a KVI listener crafts a perfectly legal loophole to gather 30 people at your WA residence for Thanksgiving, GUEST: WA Hospitality Association spokesman, Anthony Anton, tells KVI they estimate 35% of restaurants have closed temporarily or permanently in WA this year, says less than 0.5% of COVID cases have been attributed to restaurants, Anton says restaurant owner cash reserves have now been sapped from prior shutdowns as Gov. Inslee imposes new virus restrictions, a polite disagreement about the attempt to sue Gov. Inslee over these new restrictions, an example of the recent 10pm bar shutdown rule by Gov. Inslee.

Unidentified WA lawmakers travel to Hawaii with lobbyists, North Thurston School District apologizes for statistical info saying Asians are not "people of color", the stats were compiled originally to quantify systemic racism concerns, here's a suggestion for the North Thurston district, Seattle fitness gym owner becomes first business owner in the state to openly defy Gov. Inslee's new virus restrictions, the gym owner tells KVI by the state's own data that gyms aren't a location for virus spread/infections.
