Banker and industrialist Andrew Mellon was born on this day. He shares it with escape artist Harry Houdini, actor Fatty Arbuckle, back robber Clyde Barrow, genius of animation Joseph Barbera, “The King of Cool” Steve McQueen, and gas-face legend (and football player) Peyton Manning.
Man wins Darwin Award. Media blames Trump. This is about as irresponsible as you get when it comes to accurately reporting on something.

Holy shit, an accurate headline for a change! Which is why it appears on the opinion page.
Not so sure this is a good idea. But it’s Chicago…what could possibly go wrong?

I know he’s being vilified (and his statement is being interpreted incorrectly), but this guy gets it.
Sorry for the downer links again. I’m almost to the point that I dread doing them. I apologize wholeheartedly. This shit has just caused the world to lose its collective minded that makes it difficult. I don’t know if the solution is for the governments to force a total paralysis of our way of life or if it’s to lock away all the at-risk people and let the rest of us go back to living, but I know what we’re doing now is the weirdest shit I’ve ever seen and it’s making the reaction to 9/11 look sane by comparison. I’d enjoy your thoughts on what you think the correct government response would be, if any. And also how to square your personal view of libertarianism with government involvement in your solution. So comment away…just talking about shitty Coronavirus news all day every day has got to be getting old for you as well. Maybe that will lead us to a pleasant diversion.
Have a great day, friends.
