Death toll from Wuhan coronavirus outside China: One. This makes headlines.

Two things I just learned: (1) Ferdinand and Isabella founded the Spanish Inquisition. (2) Columbus governed Hispaniola so brutally that Ferdinand and Isabella had him jailed for a few weeks.

Put those two items side by side...

Dershowitz: "And if a president does something, which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment." That means anything Trump does to get re-elected can't be impeachable. If Dershowitz isn't deliberately trying to lose Trump's case for him, I don't know what else to make of that. usatoday.com/story/news/politi

I have arrived! A woke twittermob attacked me for not worshipping Greta Thudhead. After .01 nanoseconds of considering groveling and apologizing to them, I came upon a solution no one had ever thought of before: I blocked them!

Medium is such a sewer. For days they've been pushing an article titled "5 phrases your black friend wishes you'd stop saying." Implied in that title is, "I know more about your friends based on their their race than you do based on your friendship."

The FBI is actually applauding the Volstead Act because it enabled their "pursuit of the American gangster." As if their crime wave had always existed and Prohibition just gave the government a new tool to arrest them, rather than giving the gangsters a market.

Rand Paul sinks to new depths of cynicism. He says no Republican Senator will vote for impeachment because they put their careers first. He's a Republican Senator, so he's including himself and saying he puts his career ahead of principle. usatoday.com/story/news/politi

The LPNH so-called primary had no significance except as a poll of participants. The NH delegates to the national convention are a mostly sane bunch of people and aren't bound by the vote. Calling it a "primary" was dumb, and the outcome just compounded the negative consequences.

The subdomain seacoast.lpnh.org is currently in limbo. Links to my articles there get an "account suspended" message. The appropriate people at LPNH are aware of this.

When I access lpnh.org I see "account suspended" messages, sometimes redirecting to live pages. With seacoast.lpnh.org I see just the suspension notice. This has taken several of my own articles offline. Anyone know what's going on?
