Sometimes, despite not being a mathematician, nor having slept at a Holiday Inn Express, I do like to geek out on numbers. Today is one of those days. It is Bonza Bottler day (where the day and the month are the same digit), but it is also just a wonderful day for two (or is… Continue reading Two

The DIE is Cast

Virginia is making progress. Governor Youngkin inherited, as part of the state bureaucracy, a department of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. He’s already renamed it to remove equity and replace it with opportunity, so that’s a step in the right direction. However, it’s going to take more than changes within a single state’s bureaucracy to roll… Continue reading The DIE is Cast

Burlap for the Win

The Skinny on COVID-19

I’ve been grateful for the work of the Healthy Skeptic for the last several months (or maybe even a year now). He brings unblinking analysis and a desire for truth to a space which could use both. A couple days ago, he published the best breakdown I’ve recently come across with reference to where we… Continue reading The Skinny on COVID-19
