I am comparing and contrasting the government's attempts at public safety in response to the COVID virus and now in response to the riots. And then comparing and contrasting the public's reaction to the government's attempts.
With COVID, it seems like Republican public tended to underestimate the degree of peril, and Democrat government tended to over-protect.
With riots, it seems like Republican public has zero tolerance and Democrat government tends to hold back and allow it to play out on its own, while even helping rationalize the violence.

It seems to me that if government has a role in public safety, it has a role in both these perils. And that if we want the job done, we have to give the government the benefit of the doubt. What we see going on in cities right now with law enforcement unable to put down the violence is the result of not giving police officers the benefit of the doubt. So they stand back and don't do their jobs out of fear of losing their jobs.

Went to an illegal backyard dinner last night. Illegal fun (including tequila) was had by consenting adults. Please don’t report us.

No live show today as I wanted to give my guys a four day weekend with MLK Day on Monday.

Anyone got good weekend plans?

This might be the greatest correction of all time.

Good work there, CNN...
