Friday morning’s scheduled annual Newton Political Roast has been cancelled out of concern for the Covid-19 situation.

For our elected officials, this brings two forms of relief.  

  • They will not unnecessarily be mingling in a public gathering with the threat from this worrisome virus growing by the day.
  • They will not  unnecessarily be exposing themselves to heaps of abuse and ridicule from our two scheduled hosts – Greg Reibman and Josh Krintzman.

We hate to waste all that good material.  Maybe we’ll have to get to work on a Skype version of the event.

Be well everyone … and if you see any of our elected officials in the coming days, no handshakes, just a friendly kick in the shin.
