A few of the items you should know about:
Anthony Fauci, a man in constant pain, tells FiveThirtyEight, “As a country, when you compare us to other countries, I don’t think you can say we’re doing great. I mean, we’re just not.“
Pediatrician Phoebe Danziger at NYT: Get people to accept vaccines right freaking now or it won’t matter if we get a COVID-19 vaccine.
COVID-19 misinformation and conspiracy theory sites are beneficiaries of about $25 million in Google and Amazon ad revenue.
Tara Isabella Burton looks at how Christian nationalists have made mask-wearing about masculinity and “blowing things up real good” with “what looks on the surface like an inward-looking nihilism.”
Some folks sneak past security and into a city council meeting in Florida (of course) to start shouting about this being a “Christian nation” and that “The reality is this… that mask won’t protect you but Jesus will protect you.” They were arrested.
Stop making Bill Nye mad and just wear the damn mask. If for no other reason than to protect Bill Nye.
It’s not just that churches got federal money from the Paycheck Protection Program (and boy oh boy did they ever), but that millions went to televangelist crooks like Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart (who I didn’t even know was still alive), and Peter Popoff.
