Virus scare Tue, Nov 10, 2020
I really enjoy (subtext: sarcasm) how, during the time of coronavirus, every little ailment you get, from a runny nose to sinus congestion to a cough to a fever, could potentially be serious.  I sort of miss the good old days when people got sick and continued on with their normal lives. #health

Coronavirus names Tue, Nov 10, 2020
I meant to write this like 7 months ago, but oh well:  I like how people talk and write about the coronavirus with superfluous names, as if we didn't know what they were talking about.  "The novel coronavirus, also known as SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease COVID-19..."  Like, yeah we get it.  The virus. #health

Fauci accused of politics Mon, Nov 09, 2020
Dr. Anthony Fauci was accused of being political right before the recent election
When asked about the approaches of the two presidential candidates, Dr Fauci said Mr Biden was "taking it seriously from a public health perspective", while Mr Trump was "looking at it from a different perspective... the economy and reopening the country".
That's probably the least political statement ever, and he could've easily and rightfully snuck a well-informed insult right in the second part of that statement, but he didn't.  The statement is not political.  It's literal reality. #politics
