This Imprimis piece by Heather Mac Donald, “Four Months of Unprecedented Government Malfeasance,” is a bit long; but it’s also piping hot, and well worth yokur while to read.

It’s not that there’s no such thing as COVID-19. The problem is our response to it, as Mandated (don’t you love that word?) by people who do not have our best interests at heart.
We’re going to have a long, hard time cleaning up the mess they’ve made of our country.
Unless you think all-powerful government and lots and lots of riots is a healthy combination.
