This is what happens when people are taught that government is the be all, that everything requires government action, that personal responsibility doesn’t exist ‘The government didn’t do anything’: Mexican, Brazilian monkeypox responses draw concern Francisco’s lesions started after returning home to Mexico City from California in late June: First, two spots on his buttocks.

NY Times: Expand Your World, Hit The Beach In Alabama

The NY Times opinion pages have given a platform to comedian W. Kamau Bell, the host of The United Shades Of America on CNN, to write what might be one of the best opinion pieces I’ve read in the Times in I cannot tell you how long. It is primarily aimed at the Liberals who […]

Two interesting stories (Yahoo Sports) University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe has resigned.
