Non-stop calls from out-of-staters wanting to look at homes in Vermont since the Fauci comment.

The virus sent droves to a small town. Suddenly, it's not so small

The last time that happened in a big way was during the back-to-the-land movement in the 1960s and ’70s, when the state’s population grew by 35,000, among them such icons as Bernie Sanders and Ben and Jerry’s.

That trip to Bedminster NJ after Trump already was feeling sick and knew he was exposed was in character.

More cases in the White House than in all of Vietnam.

At least seven 8 people who attended event for Trump’s supreme court nominee have confirmed they have coronavirus

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced Saturday morning that he has tested positive.

>>Scaramucci

Now that's funny. Oddly, I just listened to an interview with him on a Best Of Recode/Decode. The interview was from 2018, but he is a much more interesting guy than I had thought based on his career as White House Communications Director.

Of course, it's hard to judge the whole person based on an 11-day career.

I'm in Vietnam, 99.9999% normal.

A lot of reasons why, I would say doing what you are told to do is 50% of it, community is the other 50%.

I don't think that is an option for the west now.
