Those guys at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue are the most dangerous morons on the planet.  Now they are doing their best to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci.  I have watched all of the public health top folks do interviews, Dr. Birx, the HHS Secretary, the FDA fella, the Surgeon General and a few others and they are not candid and not telling us the truth.  They don’t want to be seen in public as contradicting the racist, lying, arsehole, dumbs_it Donald Trump.  They are contributing to folks getting sick and losing their lives.  Dr. Fauci is the only one of them who I find fully credible.

Bringing in refrigerated trucks for bodies should be a trigger for automatic shutdowns.

The Chron E-Board laid into Gov. Greg Abbott yesterday.  Here is how it started:

One moment in Texas’ battle against this ravenous pandemic signaled whether Gov. Greg Abbott would lead as the state’s top executive or a top political boss. Back in May, Abbott made the fateful decision to side with Dallas hair salon owner Shelley Luther instead of local leaders in major cities across the state such as Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo.

That choice, to embrace partisan politics and a fringe populist backlash over common sense and sound medical advice from his own advisers, condemned the Lone Star State to the circumstances we face today: Hospitals near the breaking point. Nearly 3,000 Texans dead — and counting.

An epic failure for sure.

Commentary is a CNN person.  During the pandemic, it’s Channel 2 news in the morning with Owen, Lisa, Britta and crew.  Then it is the “Today” show for a couple of hours or so, then CNN the rest of the day and evening.  We have gotten to know some of the Governors.  From Washington, California, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Louisiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Dakota and the one from Minnesota on the protests.  Have not heard from the rest of the Governors.

I guess I can talk a little MLB.  This stat just jumped into my head yesterday.  The Astros have played in the last three ALCSs.  Only three teams have played in the last three ALCSs: the Astros, Red Sox and Yankees.  The Yankees have won the most ALCS titles with 11.  Next are the A’s and Red Sox with 6 each.  Every AL team has played in the ALCS with the Mariners being the only team without an ALCS title after three appearances.  On the listing of ALCS recurring matchups in Wikipedia, they got an * by our name noting that we cheated.

The season starts in 11 days.
