Is the Trump administration preparing to disappear grim coronavirus stats?

Turns out George Orwell lacked imagination. Donald Trump has already decried our robust (er, 23rd-ranked by number of tests per capita, but who’s counting?) testing regime because it makes him look bad. He’s said that if we didn’t test we’d have very few cases. Which sort of makes sense if you’re a blithering nitwit with…

HHS Rule legalizing religious discrimination in medicine struck down

First, Alfred E Newman plays Barbie dress up on an aircraft carrier, and proudly proclaims “Mission Accomplished” before a decade of senseless…
