1. This @IChotiner interview -- really a disembowlment -- of coronavirus contrarian Richard A. Epstein is, quite justifiably, getting a lot of attention. I wanted to give some historical context to explain Epstein's dingbat theories. newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/the

I mean, you know, literally, because the interview subject apparently bloviated influentially on the current administration, which is going to kill people.

Two media sources I’m happy to pay money for access to right now: the New Yorker and the Financial Times. I have no idea what this says about me.

Amazon is only providing emergency sick leave if you have a positive COVID-19 test or a formal order to be placed into quarantine

Contract divers don’t even get that. They have to apply for a “grant” to get sick leave twitter.com/reliablesources/st

Seems like some people are really dug in on . I'm gonna be explaining this a lot so get used to it. N95 masks protect the wearer. Surgical masks protect other people from the wearer. People at risk may need to wear N95 masks. Everyone else should wear surgical masks.

Points to note:
- every character wants something reasonable for them, even the villains
- they take reasonable action to get it
- all of these actions collide
- repetition is funny
- Danny Kaye was a great physical comedian

You don't get in here.

The butt-showing routine is repeated, but this time it is triumph.

And then about FIVE SECONDS of denouement.
