    Per the CDC: States have been opening up for quite some time now, so if the "power freaks" were right, then we ought to be seeing a spike in cases and deaths already … but most assuredly within the next week. I'm not seeing it anywhere.

    Well, not quite - or at least not quite that simple. She had sought a legal abortion by asserting that she had been raped. That fell apart because the story hadn't been substantiated by police evidence or documentation. She then sought an abortion through an illegal clinic; but that fell through because the clinic had been closed down by the police. Her doctor referred her to an adoption lawyer, but she said she was only interested in an abortion. She was eventually referred to attorneys Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington, who were looking for pregnant women who were seeking abortions. So, it was a two-way seeking, as it were. She was looking for any avenue to get an abortion, and Coffee and Weddington were looking for a subject for a test case. Factually correct as far as you've taken it. She never testified, and remained the anonymous Jane Roe throughout the legal case. She never had an abortion because the legal case took three years, during which time elective abortion remained illegal - so the limits of gestation, being far less than three years, shut down her options for getting an abortion. It wasn't by her choice that she gave birth - she continued to seek an abortion until her options were exhausted.

    Well, to the best of my knowledge, she never took money from the pro-choice crowd to be an advocate - though they did pay the legal fees for Roe v Wade … which, honestly, never played to her favor since she wasn't able to get the abortion she wanted. But the Pro-Choice crowd never embraced her as the Pro-Life side did. But she evidently had enough "polish" for the Pro-Life crowd. Operation Rescue paid her hundreds of thousands and coached her as to what to say as a advocate. So you have to ask whether these groups got played or if they were complicit. Did they downplay the obvious because of the inflow of cash? And who profited from that inflow of cash? You know those would be the questions you'd be posing if a similar scenario rose with a leftist cause. And backing up the both sides playing each other scenario

    I don't think it's quite the pro-life story you may be reading into it. Roe v Wade took three years to wind through the courts, during which time elective abortion was illegal in Texas. Gestation has a hard stop long before that.

    And now, in the ongoing saga of Norma McCorvey, it appears that while alive she went with whatever collectivist camp was willing to give her the better deal. But on her deathbed, she effectively thought the whole matter was a choice for the individual to make rather than something to be dictated: I wonder how the social conservatives will spin this one. Must be a deep fake video; a conspiracy I tell ya! I can't help but think of Sylvester McMonkey McBean, of Dr. Suess fame, who had machines for both removing and installing "Stars Upon Thars" … working both sides to the advantage of self.

    I'm surprised to hear that there are still book stores in operation. Competition from Amazon has them operating on pretty slim profit margins - so they probably can't pull in enough sales to make a profit without a lot of pedestrian traffic.

    Whiskeyjack Boutique I'm betting the Whiskeyjack Boutique doesn't see a big upside to opening up without a lot of tourist traffic to drive business. There's probably more expenses involved than they could hope to recoup in sales right now. It's probably that way with a lot of tourist-oriented businesses.

    Infection Prevention. The biggest benefit is as a barrier that prevents you from touching your face, rubbing your eyes, or picking your nose (or at least reminds you not to). You're most likely to pick this virus up the same way you pick up cold and flu: by grabbing it with your hands from some surface, hand rail or door knob, and transferring it to your eyes, nose or mouth.

    No, that's just it. He hasn't been found NOT GUILTY of anything; there hasn't been any finding. If you want to be vindicated or found not guilty, then you have to wait for the legal process to complete and make that determination. Still to be determined is whether the judge in the matter will dismiss the charges, or with what conditions if he does. I can't see any reason that he wouldn't, but judges are black-robed pharaohs within their realm and are generally loathe to dismiss charges against someone who has admitted guilt. This one had personally accepted Flynn's guilty plea and might be miffed that political forces are at play to free someone who admitted guilt. The judge could be swayed by the fact that Van Grack withdrew from the case so abruptly (which could indicate to the judge that political forces were at play in dropping the charges). Here's what's yet to come: It's quite possible that the judge will deduce that Flynn was coerced into his guilty plea - but how sure are you that the judge (that pharaoh in the black robe who used to be a prosecutor) will find that the evidence which was withheld was exculpatory? I think Flynn, throughout this legal process, has demonstrated the utmost decorum and respect to the court - and that works in his favor. But he did plead guilty, and the judge is going to have to reach his own conclusion on what that actually means. So it's a matter of whether he dismisses with prejudice (case is over) or without prejudice (charges could be refiled at a later date). And given that Flynn submitted a guilty plea, the judge might think it worthwhile to hold open the possibility of a second shot at this. Imagine being in Flynn's position without the connections, power and resources that Flynn can tap into.
