This top down analysis of actual versus expected mortality shows – among other things – that the USA death toll is fast approaching 1 million. And ours is one of the more accurate compilers of death statistics.
This short piece is in response to Tucker Carlson (“Tuckums”) suggesting that Child Protective Services be called when children are seen wearing masks and other such bunk.
Economist Alex Tabarrok takes issue with the administration’s diagnosis of Covid vaccine supply shortages. You gotta love the irony.

With the incredible head start Trump left Biden on COVID, I really didn’t think it was possible to screw it up. Continue reading “Start at third base and be out at 2nd”
“OSHA states that if a vaccine is required [as a condition of employment], then any adverse reaction is considered work-related and therefore it must be recorded.”
The rule makes perfect sense as a matter of bureaucratic logic. Still, one can’t suppress a chuckle. It is almost as if vaccine mandates are forcing Cloward-Piven effects on those who impose them.

“Created more than 70 years ago, the Feres Doctrine has victimized hundreds of thousands of service members and their families. The court’s failure should now put pressure on Congress to finally act to end the tragic legacy of the Feres decision.”

JVL has some more stuff in his daily post, but this was top of the list and it was easier to link to the entire article.
“A lot of people think of [Covid-19] as a respiratory disease, but it’s really a vascular disease,” says Assistant Research Professor Uri Manor, who is co-senior author of the study. “That could explain why some people have strokes, and why some people have issues in other parts of the body. The commonality between them is that they all have vascular underpinnings.”
This story is probably more important than it seems.
