This is a discussion with Weston Distance Learning in Fort Collins, Colorado. Weston Distance has decades doing distance learning. While this is focused on what my company, The Blue Cell, is doing with Weston Distance, it's also a great example of how you can do distance learning in the age of COVID-19

In 2009, Dr. Fauci gave an interview about how to deal with H1N1 influenza. It is eerily similar to the same advice he gives today, but without the social distancing, closing of businesses and destruction of the U.S. and world economies.

Michael provides some facts about coronavirus and Covid-19 and asks a tough but needed question. Are all of the containment, quarantine and mitigation efforts worth the economic costs to save a very small percentage of people who might contract a severe case of the virus and because of pre-existing chronic conditions, be subject to death or expensive medical treatment? The economic disruption is costing people jobs, income, stabi...

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attacked Associate Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch at a pro-choice rally, for which he was promptly rebuked by Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
