The little things

Tuesday. It could rain. On this day in 1881, Billy the Kid was shot and killed at Fort Sumner by Pat Garrett.

It’s nice to see that we’re using state of the art technology in the battle against the coronavirus. Mick Mulvaney, of all people, wrote an op-ed supporting additional funding to address the “testing problem in this country.” You know, the one that the administration says doesn’t exist.
