About Me

I am 57, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (a lot). My 17 year old "puppy" died on June 2, 2020. She grew up listening to Animals (Pink Floyd). She has kept me sane through the tRump years, not easy, and has given me endless love, companionship, kisses and tail wags.

School Reopenings, Mobility, and COVID-19 Spread: Evidence from Texas

"We find robust evidence that reopening Texas schools gradually but substantially accelerated the community spread of COVID-19....school reopenings led to at least 43,000 additional COVID-19 cases and 800 additional fatalities within the first two months."

"However, in Texas, reopenings often occurred alongside high community spread and at near capacity, making it difficult to meet social distancing recommendations. Using event-study models and hand-collected instruction modality and start dates for all school districts, we find robust evidence that reopening Texas schools gradually but substantially accelerated the community spread of COVID-19."

Judge orders release of Trump obstruction memo, accuses Barr of being 'disingenuous'

https://thehill.com/regulation/551755-judge-orders-release-of-trump-obstruction-memo-accuses-barr-of-being-disingenuous

"Judge orders release of Trump obstruction memo, accuses Barr of being 'disingenuous'."


"District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Monday ordered the DOJ to release the legal memo within two weeks in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW). The DOJ had argued in court that the full memo - portions of which have already been released - should be withheld because it falls under exceptions to the public records law for attorney-client privilege and deliberative government decisionmaking. But Jackson said on Monday that those claims were not consistent with her own review of the unredacted memo or the timeline revealed by internal emails among top Justice Department officials."

"The judge cited internal emails that showed the OLC memo and Barr's letter to Congress were being prepared at the same time and by the same officials, further casting doubt on the DOJ's argument that the memo should be shielded from the public as part of an internal process to help government leaders make an official decision. Jackson also said that the memo did not just contain legal advice but was a blend of legal and strategic recommendations about how Barr should handle the Mueller report."

"Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for CREW, said in an emailed statement that the 2019 memo "is a key piece to understanding the Department of Justice's actions around potential obstruction of justice charges for then-President Trump," adding, "We are grateful that the judge agreed that the public deserves to see it."

"The inconsistencies between Attorney General Barr's statements, made at a time when the public did not have access to the redacted version of the Mueller Report to assess the veracity of his statements, and portions of the redacted version of the Mueller Report that conflict with those statements cause the Court to seriously question whether Attorney General Barr made a calculated attempt to influence public discourse about the Mueller Report in favor of President Trump despite certain findings in the redacted version of the Mueller Report to the contrary," Walton wrote in his decision."

Newsom gets strong ratings on schools, economy despite recall attacks

https://www.politico.com/states/california/story/2021/04/29/newsom-gets-strong-ratings-on-schools-economy-despite-recall-attacks-1378663

"Gov. Gavin Newsom just got the most concrete evidence to date showing why heís positioned to survive a recall vote."

"But a new statewide poll suggests those two pillars of anti-Newsom sentiment arenít as sturdy as his foes think. The Public Policy Institute of California found 59 percent of likely voters approve of how Newsom has managed school reopening ó and 59 percent approve how he has handled jobs and the economy. That figure is a few points higher than the share of likely voters who told PPIC in March they would vote to keep Newsom in office."

"By comparison, in a June 2003 PPIC poll, only 21 percent of likely voters approved of then-Gov. Gray Davis' job performance. The same survey found 51 percent of likely voters supported a recall, presaging his ouster four months later. The latest PPIC poll did not ask voters whether they would support removing Newsom."
