New Normal? Scientists Say Coronavirus Won’t End With Warmer Weather

(CNN) — With health experts warning that warmer months won’t bring an end to coronavirus, officials are developing a framework for what America’s new normal could look like. President Trump has previously claimed that increased temperatures will bring an end to the virus. But members of a National Academy of Sciences committee said in a letter to the White House Tuesday that the data is mixed on if the virus spreads less easily in the heat, however that might not matter much given the lack of im...

Remembering American Songwriting Legend John Prine (RIP): “A True Folk Singer in the Best Folk Tradition”

“A friend called our new world ‘a ghost ship,’” wrote Nick Cave in a recent installment of his Red Hand Files blog. “She has recently lost someone dear to her and recognizes acutely the premonitory feeling of a world about to be shattered.” The experience has become distressingly common. We have all begun to lose people dear, if not near, to us—artists taken by the disease before their time like Bill Withers, whose “Lean on Me” is now more poignant than ever. Whatever else we’re faced wi...

Spousal abuse and taxes in trying times

Photo by Vera Arsic via Pexels The biggest problem for most of us in coronavirus lockdown with our families, whether ordered by state or local officials or self-imposed, is figuring out how to not get on each other's last nerve. For some, however, the forced togetherness is deadly serious. Possibly just deadly. Domestic violence since COVID-19 appeared has spiked as victims find themselves forced to stay home with abusers, according to those who work to protect people, still primarily wom...

Reviewing action by (too few) Governors to reduce incarcerated populations in response to COVID crisis

I have been pleased to see a few Governors step up to deal with the COVID crisis created by crowded prisons and jails, but I continue to be disappointing that there are seemingly not that many chief executives being proactive in this space during these harrowing times.  I suspect and fear that I am here not providing a complete accounting of good gubernatorial actions, but I welcome comments or emails for supplementing this list: Alabama: "Ivey order allows for release of some county jail inmate...

More Details on Airlifts and Supply Seizures

Here are a couple more details on shipment seizures and inter-state bidding we’ve been discussing here in recent days. Both are interviews on this evening’s Newshour, flagged to me by TPM Reader KM.

Bill would expand COVID-19 payments for college students, other dependents

Look for this new legislation to be part of the now-developing Phase 4 coronavirus relief measure expected to be considered in late April. Unlike this pre-coronavirus campus study group, current college kids are utilizing e-learning options to provide them appropriate social distancing and other COVID-19 protections. Young adults fell through the cracks in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. That new law created the COVID-19 relief payments that the Internal ...

McGrath's campaign released a TV ad Friday lambasting the Kentucky Republican for “taking a victory lap against the coronavirus." It's a quick response by his most well-funded Democratic challenger to a McConnell commercial in which he trumpeted his key role in passing the $2.2 trillion rescue package.

Before Demanding Every Member Cast a COVID-19 Vote, Tom Massie Skipped a COVID-19 Vote For a Fundraiser

As Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) explained it, his decision to try and force every last member of the House of Representatives back to Washington, D.C. in the middle of a pandemic to get their votes on a massive coronavirus relief bill was a matter of pure principle, the type of act that those truly wedded to the ideals of a constitutional republic would gladly perform. “I thought I might be signing my political death sentence,” the Kentucky Republican would say later, reflecting on the procedural m...
