Wouldn’t it be great if Ron DeSantis turned at least a little bit of his nastiness on the virus? Florida has had 110,000 new infections in the last week.
Nothing for you to get cocky about, Abbott. Texas cases are up 200 percent over 14 days.
Smart people, including smart governors, are open to reconsidering their stances in the face of overwhelming facts. Arkansas Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson now says he regrets earlier approving a statewide ban on mask mandates. Hutchinson has called the Arkansas Legislature into special session to consider amending that law. That was a rational act, proving he has no political future in today’s GOP.
As of this writing, we have lost 614,342 Americans to COVID-19. Computer models, which have been remarkably accurate, predict up to 20,000 more U.S. deaths in the next three weeks. Every single one of them will have been avoidable.
We’re 17 months into this pandemic. And we’re right back in the boiling cauldron of virus and ignorance.
I am a pragmatist. I like things that work. I don’t like things that don’t work. “Rugged Individualism” has been a dismal failure for a year and a half. Community action is the only way to stop the spread. That’s not “Communism” or “Socialism.” It’s biology.
Masks are the only protection our under-12 kids will have as they head back to school. Yes, as virologist Paul Offit puts it, “We are failing our children.” That represents societal collapse.

SEC score update. Arkansas leads Mississippi 25-6 in available ICU beds. Late fourth quarter.
Quit, Cuomo. Or wait to be impeached, convicted and removed. And some of the allegations corroborated by the NY Attorney General’s investigation go well beyond “hostile workplace sexual harassment.” Some of them are straight-up criminal sexual assault.
Finally, yes. There is conclusive, open-and-shut evidence of an effort to steal the 2020 presidential election. It was engineered by Donald J. Trump. It might have succeeded had it not been for heroes in the DOJ.
