·       I linked to a WSJ column by Peggy Noonan yesterday , but failed to mention that I am no fan of hers. Scott Johnson of Powerline does a good job of explaining why.

·       Poll: Most believe getting vaccinated for COVID is a personal choice. My worry is side effects that may show up down the road due to the haste with which we approved the vaccine. I worry about unintended consequences.

·       The Border Patrol is scrambling to fill a 20 foot gap in the border wall that has enabled thousands of illegal immigrants to slip in.

·       Has Trump rolled out his first ad for a run at 2024
