I’ve been enjoying the weekly satires of Martin Hackworth, whose merry, ribald columns of angry OK-Boomer cliche have rivaled the snark of Mark Twain and the parodies of our true American cultural gem, “The Onion.” When he affects Soviet-style “what-aboutism” on such matters as black-on-blac…

The irrational and frenzied reaction of governments and experts to the corona issue is destroying America. 2020 is certainly, so far, the worst, most depressing year of my long life. And it's not over. The overreaching incompetence and purposeful mistakes are disturbing and probably criminal…
