  1. From Heather Cox Richardson's new essay tonight: And yet, Trump seems to have accepted that he’s going to have to leave office, and to be exploring his options. New York Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael S. Schmidt tonight broke the news that he has discussed with advisers whether he should grant preemptive pardons to Don Jr., Eric, Ivanka, Jared Kushner, and Giuliani. This poses a problem for them, though, since to make a pardon stick it needs to be as specific as possible, which would mean he would have to suggest what they might have done that requires a pardon.
  2. A pre-emptive pardon seems insane. For what period does the pardon apply? If it applies to events after the date of the pardon, the person could use it to go on a rampage of crimes, knowing they were immune.

  16. Well, there is a conspiracy theory that the FBI created Parler just to put all the nutcases in one place, so they would be easier to monitor.
  17. Hey, it's a well-known fact that passing a gas through a layer of paper or cloth can change the chemical composition of the gas. That is why we are always reading the stories of surgical staff passing out in the the middle of surgical procedures and needing to be carried out of the room!
  18. I saw a tweet a few days ago claiming that Melania told a confidant she was going to file as soon as they were out of the Whitehouse.

    Both? There are 3 now. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55040635 This one is different in that it is a conventional vaccine (not mRNA), and only requires refrigeration, not freezing.
