The Mahablog: Data from several nations and U.S. states show what Coronavirus lockdown policies and mask mandates did—and did not do—to public health and the economy.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right...Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.” (Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), July 2004)
