Quite a drop of chart and data posts this am. Thanks to DD and my web people for making that possible. A few short weeks ago I thought I was on the verge of winding this down, but CV-19 to some extent, and the usual politicians and experts had other ideas. As typical of the epidemic, anything becomes an opportunity to spread hysteria and panic, so I do my best to fight it with real data and real research summaries and hopefully helpful commentary. That op-ed I published in the Star Tribune a couple of weeks ago is looking pretty accurate. You can’t trust government to be forthcoming, truthful or accurate. You can depend on it to message and massage data and science for its own purposes. Use your own brain, that’s what its there for.
