Three headlines

Done with the framing - insulation and then done for the day

Three headlines:

One paragraph:

What the bow tie–wearing myopics of the swamp can't or refuse to see is that President Trump's support comes, at its source, from growing animal spirits in America convinced that the federal government is a major problem.  The country elected Mr. Trump, in part, because he promised to be a giant club willing to bash the D.C. hull repeatedly until it sinks into the Potomac River basin.  You can't fight a war if you don't even understand the positions of the players or the stakes involved, and the D.C. denizens prove every day that they have no idea what's going on in the minds of those living between the coasts.

Nails it flat.  Next:

One paragraph:

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying "maybe I'm f---ing deluding myself here" and explaining that in order to run, he'd have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to "raise a couple of million," adding that such donors "now have the reality of Bernie."

What - don't have access to your wife's money any more? Grifter.  And the last:

Two paragraphs:

The professor said it was possible the coronavirus might be transmitted via faeces. After entering the intestine and multiplying, it may then be excreted and come into contact with a person's hands, he said.

He also warned that the virus could be turned to vapour by the force of a toilet flushing, endangering people in the same room.

This is going to be a lot of fun in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles when it hits the homeless population.

And do not get me started on the new fad of air hand dryers - those are a serious health hazard if the person using them does not do the full 20-second health-department hand wash. A quick rinse (with or without soap) will just loosen the surface bacteria and the hand dryer will aerosolize them into a 6-10 foot cloud.
Don't believe me? Here, here, here and here. The Journal of Applied Microbiology has the definitive paper.
