Trump chit-chatted with the ass-lickers on Fox & Friends Monday morning. At the time he was on the phone 204,126 Americans had been reported dead of COVID-19. Still he rated his handling of the pandemic-- panned all over the world as the worst of any national leader (other than...

A new PBS-NPR poll by Marist finds the Donald down by 10 points nationally-- 52% to 42%. Trump's overall disapproval number is a dismal 53%.

Trump's tweet was hilarious Wednesday morning. I wondered if it gave McConnell heart failure; I'm certain it sent Pelosi into a state of near exultation, if not euphoria. He completely undercut McConnell's already weak bargaining position on the must-pass pandemic relief bill--...

The editorial page of the Wall Street Journal is as far right as the typical Sean Hannity or Laura Ingraham show. Not the news coverage, the editorial page. Yesterday, the editors asked about a Trump comeback and noted that Biden wants to make the campaign a referendum on Trump. He’s...

Yesterday, the U.S. reached a new, hideous-- but soon to be forgotten-- threshold in the pandemic: 6.5 million cases. There will have been a quarter million deaths-- most preventable-- before election day. The economy-- the real one, not the Wall Street one-- is a shambles. The Trump...

In all likelihood Americans will go to the polls in November knowing over a quarter million of our fellow citizens had died-- most needlessly-- because of Republican mishandling on the pandemic. By early next year, deaths will tick up beyond 300,000. How do Republicans defend...

"Fargo" Revisited by Nancy Ohanian

Poof! into thin air- by Nancy Ohanian

There are a lot of ways to interpret the data Worldometers puts out on the pandemic. One that I find useful is to look at daily new cases, which generally track future mortality. Cases per million residents is also important since it's otherwise...
