Not really: Hitchens owed his late-life prominence to his unique combination of post-9/11 Wilsonianism and militant atheism, plus the prose.

Sorry, just processing: There are people who think Red is a better album than Speak Now?

A continued pet peeve of mine: given that there is at-least-short-term immunity for the large majority of cases, you have to account for the high rate of past infections in hard-hit areas (say the Northeast) in assessing why they're now doing better with the virus. It's a factor.

It's not a blank check, it's a $1 trillion dollar check! It has the number he opposes written on it!

Letting an economy collapse during a pandemic because you're worried about hypothetical high inflation rates in 2032 seems pretty fiscally insane.

Cotton is correct on the policy and the politics but Cruz is ready to occupy the TrueCon lane again in 2024 I guess.

If you're frustrated that your state seems invisible in the COVID data discussions, I did something where I show all states and talk about every region of the US. I'm sorry to VT, NH, ME, AK and HI for sticking you all in a "miscellaneous" category

Favorite current female fantasy writers: Noami Novik (for the "Uprooted"/"Spinning Silver" combination) and Robin Hobb (for all the Fitz books).

Susan Cooper and Mary Stewart, both of whom I've recently re-read - the former to my kids, the latter for myself. "Over Sea, Under Stone" and "The Crystal Cave" are both still terrific.

I just re-read Stewart’s Merlin novels and the first two are still great.

So here it is y'all. We got a major upward revision in deaths in recent weeks which means my prior forecast that we'd reached normal-ish deaths has been revised into oblivion. Deaths are rising again.
