·       Is the pandemic responsible for America’s violent crime wave? The evidence would seem to say no.

Thus, it seems clear that the pandemic didn’t cause the U.S. crime wave — a view that, as noted, seems counterintuitive, to begin with. The problem, Gelinas concludes, is that “we have effectively halted all preventative policing [and] have also effectively stopped all incarceration of suspects and criminals short of murder.”Read More]

·       Okay, so how did Elon do on SNL. OK, but he’s better off changing the world than trying to do comedy, especially with the second-rate writers and hack cast than SNL has these days. It’s been about 20 years since I’ve been a watcher and I’ll go back to my avoidance. Oh for the days of Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and Jane Curtin. There has to be some talent out there somewhere, although with the current crop of writers the show has, they’d have a tough time showing it. Even the Robinhood crowd was disappointed, as they hoped Elon’s appearance might push Dogecoin to parity with the dollar. It wasn’t to be.

·       How dumb are reporters? You don’t have to answer that. I think we all have a pretty good idea. Andrea Mitchell, whose only apparent claim to fame is being married to Alan Greenspan, made the mistake of trying to go head-to-head with Ted Cruz, her intellectual superior by a country mile. Equally funny, Jennifer Rubin stepped in for the high five and instead stepped on a rake. These are our intellectual betters, folks. They are nothing more than political operatives with a byline.

Hopefully, “there will be growth in the spring.” The question is how much damage can be done before the electorate has a chance in the 2022 elections to reverse this train wreck.
