It shouldn't take a deadly pandemic to make it painfully obvious that tying health care to employment and then firing people who get sick is a terrible system.

Amazing. Quantum background noise can alter the position of a macro-sized object, in this case a 40 kilogram mirror at LIGO. This means that quantum randomness can affect human-scale phenomena. Holy Schrodinger!

This mansion is about 1/4 of a mile from my apartment. Lots of "keep out" signs on the street that leads into that neighborhood. I guess they really mean it. Not a good look.

Trump retweets video of white St Louis couple pointing guns at protesters.

Stop comparing Trump to the infamous racist George Wallace. It's unfair to Wallace | Samuel G Freedman

Trump resembles the segregationist Alabama governor who ran for president. But at least Wallace turned out to have a conscience.

And here's another recent essay I wrote with several decades of citations regarding Trump's sadistic pleasure in watching people die and profiting off destruction theglobeandmail.com/opinion/ar

This article puts things into perspective.

"The world is agog as Pres. Trump flails over pandemic, despite his claims that the US leads the way.

The president’s outlandish behavior as Americans suffer has inspired horror and confusion while alienating allies."

In short, Pres.Trump's response has been ptitful.

A Kayleigh McEnany (Trump's presser) quote gives away the game.

The Trump White House has DAILY testing and tracing that's needed to keep people safe. But Pres.Trump is not helping the rest of the US get tested. Wouldn't you like the luxury of on demand testing?

Strong words from Dana Milbank:

Other countries are winning against the virus. The US is quitting.

The people that Pres. Trump promotes to high positions are almost as terrifying as Pres. Trump himself. Peter Navarro is a self proclaimed, well documented, liar.
