Criminally Incurious

It is halfway through year 2 KFE (Kung Flu Era), and many people appear to have moved on with their lives, and that’s good. But if you think it’s over, you’ve got another thing coming. Most of us would sure like to see the world return to pre-Kung times, but that toothpaste has already been squeezed out of the tube and it ain’t going back. The power accrued by Big Tech, Big Media, Big Government …

Irrational Fear Is the New American Pastime

Spokane County Covid Numbers

Irrational fear is driving America crazy. I don’t know why I keep posting about the Kung Flu. I don’t want to keep writing about it, but I can’t escape it. I’m like a midget in a crowded elevator: it’s constantly being thrust in my face and there’s nothing I can do. I’m sick of it.

They were not going to understand if the cupboards were bare, and they are big dogs. Hungry …

It’s been a long two-weeks to flatten the curve. Honestly, it feels a lot more like seven months (but who’s counting?). Cases are up. It’s amusing how the media are fixated on the total cases. They’re always growing! Yeah. Cumulative lists are like that, you idiots! But if you look just a little harder, you might discover that little percentage number that even the Health Department seems reluctant to highlight. That’s the number of recovered …
