Crazy People Are Dangerous

  Sydney Parham went viral this week when a video showed her (allegedly, I hasten to add) pouring gasoline into a Jeep and setting it on fire. Oops!   She done blowed herself up, as folks would say down home, but perhaps I had better not invoke folks down home, because some of them have […]

Death of a White Man

Probably no one will mourn the passing of Sean Ruis, who flipped out last week in a Michigan convenience store when the clerk refused him service because he wasn’t wearing a mask. Ruis reacted by stabbing a 77-year-old man, and was subsequently gunned down by a sheriff’s deputy: For her part, Gov. Whitmer said she […]

Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes

  All those “dumb blonde” jokes? They’re not jokes: A 22-year-old Michigan woman faces up to 15 years behind bars for allegedly inciting riots by destroying property and encouraging other looters to ransack stores during her Facebook Live broadcast. Alexandria “Ally” Lyons of Grand Rapids was arrested after reportedly damaging businesses last weekend in Grand […]

In early March, when the country was already becoming concerned about the spread of the virus, Whitmer did not cancel the Democratic presidential primary, […]

Blame Trump? Store Guard Murdered After Confronting Customer Without Mask

  Friday, a security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigian, was shot to death after he confronted a customer who was not wearing a mask. Liberals on Twitter rushed to blame President Trump, claiming the shooting was inspired by Trump’s criticism of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “This is another Trump inspired murder,” one […]

COVID-19: The Insanity Pandemic

  Long before anyone heard of the Wuhan coronavirus, America was already gripped by a pandemic of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). Our news media were particularly hard-hit by that illness, and unless you were immune to TDS, it was not safe to expose yourself to CNN or MSNBC. An irrational desire to blame Trump for […]

Worse Before It Gets Better: Statistical Risk and the Wuhan Coronavirus

  For three consecutive days, Italy has reported declining numbers of new coronavirus cases, so that Monday’s number (4,050 new cases) was the lowest they have reported since March 17. At the same time, however, Italy reported 812 deaths from the virus Monday. This was the 10th consecutive day with more than 600 coronavirus deaths […]
