That Discomfort You’re Feeling Is Grief

A friend pointed me to this — glad I took the time over my “lunch break” to peruse. It’s good.

This is a temporary state. It helps to say it. I worked for 10 years in the hospital system. I’ve been trained for situations like this. I’ve also studied the 1918 flu pandemic. The precautions we’re taking are the right ones. History tells us that. This is survivable. We will survive. This is a time to overprotect but not overreact.

CDC director rejects label ‘Chinese virus’ after Trump, McCarthy tweets 

Trump on Tuesday shared a tweet advocating for his U.S.-Mexico border wall as a way to protect America against the “China Virus.” Adding his own commentary, Trump wrote, “Going up fast. We need the Wall more than ever!”That prompted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to slam the president’s comments as racist. “A wall won’t stop a virus. Racism won’t stop a virus. Do your job,” the former vice president tweeted.

A leader leads … he doesn’t divide. This clown — and his ilk in Congress — know nothing else but division. They’re a sorry waste of good skin. I feel for good public servants like Robert Redfield for having to put up with this bullshit.

Judge demands unredacted Mueller report, questions Barr’s ‘credibility’

The inconsistencies between Attorney General Barr’s statements, made at a time when the public did not have access to the redacted version of the Mueller Report to assess the veracity of his statements, and portions of the redacted version of the Mueller Report that conflict with those statements cause the Court to seriously question whether Attorney General Barr made a calculated attempt to influence public discourse about the Mueller Report in favor of President Trump despite certain findings in the redacted version of the Mueller Report to the contrary …

Judge Reggie B. Walton, federal district court, Washington

Finally. The fact that the public STILL hasn’t seen the “unredacted” version of the report is unconscionable.
