The latest state Department of Justice fracas involves gun registration, but there’s a common thread among all of Becerra’s scandals. As California’s “top cop,” he...

Beware of biased vaccine distribution algorithms

As the sheer logistical challenge of distributing vaccines to over 300 million Americans looms large, institutions are furiously developing algorithms to assist the rollout.
