A COVID-19 story: My nightmare in a Florida hospital

The conservatives who run Florida’s government have never taken this pandemic seriously. They closed the state far too late and reopened it far too soon. COVID-19 cases have now exploded.

Trump filling up Yankee Stadium with death is all he knows

Trump promises us “It will disappear — like a miracle, it will disappear.” but only after there are many more deaths filling Yankee stadium. On 4 May, CEA decided to tweet some nonsense about “curve-fitting” the latest COVID death projections, at which the Twitterverse was subsequently merciless. Some folks dragged the current CEA’s faulty data visualization because…
