Re: I’ve got my bazooka, how about you?

Journalists no longer do proper research before writing stories. They are lazy and just regurgitate stories they read on the internet or social media blogs. It is shameful what has happened to journalism. I can’t define journalism, but I know it when I see it, and that ain’t it. The byline for the ...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

No commentary from me, but interesting observations all the same from Dr. Jeremy Faust, a Harvard Medical School instructor and emergency physician at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. He wrote an essay on Tuesday in Scientific American titled "Comparing COVID-19 Deaths to Flu Deaths Is like Com...

I loved how Abbott pretty much implied that Lina Hidalgo can now go pound sound. Made my day.

Re: Nobody but Lina Hidalgo

Thank the Lord for Abbott. Can you imagine if we had a leftist tyrant? And the Harris County face mask "order" is for 30 days. By my calculation that would have equaled 34,560 mask-touches for Lina.

Re: Nobody but Lina Hidalgo

Okay. So I watched part of Judge Lina (aka "Dora the Explorer") Hidalgo's daily SARAside Press Conference today. There was much touching of face masks, but it didn't occur to me until the final few minutes televised on KPRC to grab a pen and keep a tally. A refresher: If you wear a mask, every inhal...
