No, those are the deaths caused by your response to the virus.

Well gosh aren’t we geniuses, we’re going to try the meds we use for COPD and asthma to see if they work on other breathing difficulties. Half the world has already noted that steroids help alleviate Covid symptoms in severe cases.

My eye went immediately to the lines – just look at that jet itself – the round-cornered rectangle, plus the straight sides, plus the parallel lines. They run right through my boat with some swept back angularity here and there. Don’t like the round nose on this jet but understand it’s necessary.

The mayor of Olympia, Washington, expressed support for the Black Lives Matter cause, but when her own home was vandalized she called it similar to “domestic terrorism.”

Mayor Cheryl Selby made the comments after her home was vandalized on Friday with Black Lives Matter graffiti despite her already displaying support for the movement.

“I’m really trying to process this,” the mayor said Saturday to The Olympian. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.”

The clarity with which the onset of Covid-19 revealed who could afford to get out of town, who might be OK if they lost their job, who had money or family to fall back on. The backgrounds of Zoom calls, your colleagues’ Instagrams and casual Slack references revealed who was trying to get the air-conditioner in their Crown Heights studio working, and who was opening up the pool.
