Once again Trump lied. I know, this isn't news. But no one seems to respond, so I will. Trump has repeatedly claimed (including in last night's debate) that "the US has one of the lowest case-mortality rates in the world."

If Trump thinks that being in a 6-way tie for the 110th lowe…

There are something like 40,000 people who are able to nominate whoever they like for the Nobel Peace Prize. Being nominated means nothing. Winning it does.

It's now been shown that children rarely get Covid up until age 10. After that, they get it at the same rate as adults. But the problem is not that the children will be infected--though they will be--it's that the teachers, bus drivers, janitors, cafeteria workers, etc. will get infected.…

Sorry, but this is stupid. We ALL (didn't we?) knew that a huge number, if not most, people were going to vote ASAP. This means some of us voted in early October--three weeks ago. And NOW (!) you're going to explain the ballot questions?

Sorry, you're about 4 weeks too late.

As it stands, she'll be confirmed along strict party lines and will be known forever as "another Trump judge." She will be tainted. She obviously didn't think…

Funny how similar it was to the alternative universe Trump described on NBC this week. I want to go live where these people live! It sounds fantastic!

The "originalist" position is so filled with contradictions it's a joke. As EVERYONE should know, the basic argument about the "welfare clause" goes back to the early 19th c. The clause appear twice, once in the preamble and once in the text. It says the federal gov. can pass laws "to pro…

Today (Sept. 14) I got a 1st class letter from Wisconsin postmarked Sept. 9--last Wed. Should be 2 days, right? Leaving out Sunday, it took 4 days.

I should also add two facts: first, the post office hasn't made a "profit" since about 1853. Why should it? It's a service, not a business. How much "profit" do the police or fire departments make?

Second, how many of you know that in 2006 Congress passed a law requiring USPS to cre…
