If out of the blue one morning Gov. Newsom was like "Shark attacks are extremely rare, but out of an abundance of caution, we're closing every beach in California until we investigate more", that's not likely to get more people to go out to the beach, even once beaches reopen.

The J&J concern seems hugely overblown. 6 people experienced this (all happen to be women, so maybe it's 100% safe for men?) out of several million shots delivered. Only one person died and one is in critical condition. Now that the side-effect is known, and it's also known that Heparin is not a good treatment for these clots, I would feel basically as safe getting the shot now as I did before any of this news broke.

I've never been that big of a hug person, but it turns out I'm not quite this small of a hug person either.

I predict late-2021 to require that chart to be re-scaled. I'm gonna hug *everyone*.

Really important story. More focus should be on local and state Republicans, who are going to play a big role in whether or not the party gets off its current anti-democratic course. twitter.com/_cingraham/sta…

Our democracy didn’t fail in part because of the consciences of a handful of state and local GOP officials. The party is already trying to replace them detroitnews.com/story/news/pol… pic.twitter.com/zmO7omOAYM
