Image of the Day: Medical / Pharmaceutical / Healthcare Sector Approval Skyrockets

Although the year 2020 was a trying one in so many ways, one bright spot that we at CFIF repeatedly highlighted is the wondrous way in which America's pharmaceutical sector came to the rescue, achieving in one year what typically takes a decade or more:  devising and perfecting not one, but multiple lifesaving vaccines.  It's therefore no surprise, but welcome nonetheless, that Americans' approval of our healthcare sector and its workers skyrocketed.  Their remarkable achievements have not gone unnoticed:

Former talk show host Larry King (87) is being sued by wife number seven, Shawn Southwick King (61), who is requesting financial spousal support to the tune of $33,100 per month.

According to media reports, King filed for divorce from Southwick King in 2019, following almost 22 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. 

“My wife is a very religious Mormon, and I’m an agnostic atheist, so that causes little problems,” King said. “We overcame a lot, but it just hit a point where we didn’t get along.”

The couple share two sons and Southwick King claims she put her career as a singer and actress on hold to raise their children. Southwick King says her focus on being an “at-home” mother has made her financially dependent on King.

“Now that the parties are in the process of dissolving their 22-year marriage, [Southwick King] is financially dependent on [King] at this stage of her life, due to the parties’ agreement that she would care for and raise their sons instead of pursuing her acting and singing career,” the lawsuit states. “[Southwick King] seeks temporary spousal support from [King] to meet and pay her living expenses.”

King also has agreed to pay Southwick King a one-time lump sum of $20,000. Friends of Southwick King reportedly said she was “blindsided” by his divorce filing.
