Comic, Netflix staple Jo Koy talks race, rejection in memoir
(AP Photo/Chris Pizzello)Like many famous comics, Jo Koy had early struggles at comedy clubs. "Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo,” out Tuesday, is an ideal companion to Koy's stand-up with its humorous — and at times painful — origin stories behind some of his most popular bits. The book shows how Koy's mixed-race background ultimately shaped his brand of comedy and his determination not to give up on his childhood dream. “I’ve always been open to just letting people be inside my life,” Koy said.

California predicts $54.3 billion budget deficit due to coronavirus
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California will face a budget deficit of $54.3 billion due to a huge drop in revenue combined with increased expenses linked to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a projection released on Thursday by financial advisers to Governor Gavin Newsom. This is bigger than all of us and we really need the federal government to do more, Newsom said. At that time, when Newsom proposed a budget that increased spending for anti-poverty efforts, education, mental health services and other programs, unemployment was at 3.9% and the state had a projected $5.6 billion surplus, with another $21 billion in reserves. New housing construction is also expected to drop, with a projected 21% reduction in new building permits. In addition, the state expects to spend more than projected in 2020 because of about $13 billion in expenses related to the coronavirus pandemic.feeds.reuters.com
