Join Jim and Greg for three crazy martinis today! First, they wade into the battle over how schools should open, with President Trump and teacher unions unsurprisingly on opposite sides of the debate. Jim offers a highly entertaining theory on how a recent head injury may explain some of his troubling decisions. And they have a lot of fun dissecting the new presidential campaign of Kanye West.

Today, American Wonk premieres COVID in 19, a new series where Scott Immergut of Ricochet and Avik Roy of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity discuss the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic in 19 minutes.

New episodes will be released once to twice a week—stay tuned!

Join Jim and Greg as they wince over the news that coronavirus mutations could make the virus up to ten times more contagious. They also hammer Joe Biden for embracing a national version of California’s AB5, which crushes opportunities for freelance work and erodes the right to work without joining labor unions. And they shake their heads as President Trump decides to dredge up a fight with Bubba Wallace and NASCAR.

I have another COVID-19 update for you today, focusing on the U.S. generally, and specifically on my home state of Arizona. I’ve heard that there has been some media focus on Arizona in recent weeks.

My last post was on June 23 (here), with my standard analysis comparing reported COVID-19 deaths in the US and Western Europe. I did run that analysis again today but am not going to post new graphs, as the trends are unchanged.

A group of oncologists estimate that 60,000 people in the UK will die of cancer because they were unable to get adequate treatment due to COVID-19 restrictions. I am torn about what to think about this estimate. Why should one trust the prognostications of a group of oncologists any more than one trusts the prognostications […]

I think we are half through the Wuhan Flu. That is, the USA is halfway to herd immunity. When I look at data from Sweden (half rural half urban) I see deaths ending at about 60 per 100K. When I look at data from Michigan (half rural/half urban) I see deaths ending at about 70 […]

This may be of interest to those who are already physicians, because the process may have changed quite a bit, just in this century. I would like to describe what I’ve found so far.

(CNN) Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said if elected president, he would make wearing a face covering in public compulsory, furthering himself on the issue from President Donald Trump who has stressed that masks are voluntary and has flouted public health recommendations. “The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference.

Your Friday martinis are served as Rob Long fills in for Jim. Today, they applaud Tim Scott for pointing out the Democrats didn’t block police reform because of what was in the bill but because of who was proposing it. They also wade into the scrutiny on some red states as their COVID infections increase, and they dissect the intense political debate over wearing masks. And they have fun with the news $1.4 billion in stimulus checks were sent out to dead people.
