As President Donald Trump entered the final year of his term last January, the U.S. recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19.

And the loss of lives is accelerating. WASHINGTON, DC – OCTOBER 05: U.S. President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up upon retu...

Scoping the Battlefield

I biked down to the White House and over to the Capitol to survey security for the inauguration. Random pictures attached — none too interesting or illuminating. After 9-11 (I worked a block from the White House back then), I am no longer shocked by a few humvees and troops with serious weapons in DC. Before 9-11, troops had not been in DC since 1968. A few observations: there’s a lot of tall expanded metal fencing and big dump trucks, as well as jump up barriers, and concret...
