Quote
"Since he was a teenager, Reuven has hungered for an intellectual life beyond Jewish texts. In private, he “voraciously” consumed books about evolution written by Orthodox rabbis."

DDF Covid boards are full of honest reflection. No need to run to do a full blown derogatory article in a nationwide magazine for that. But..

We're missing nuance... again.

The Bahamas? At least she wasn’t known/suspected positive and pretending to be negative.

Interesting article with nice graphics, but there isn’t really enough data to answer the question and while flight data could have been used to track spread on planes, the aviation industry has every incentive for that not to happen.

So now it's OK?

This is way overdue, and likely too late to make a difference (unless they’re doing something with variants). The Oxford study was publicized a while ago and probably discussed on DDF, the first phase of it will only use volunteers who’ve already had COVID.

It’s incredible how this can be said with absolutely zero evidence supporting it one way or another. People wanna know why science is no longer trusted? It’s because with Covid we’ve thrown out every single basic tenet of viruses and immunity and based all policy around whatever was the worst outcome even if it was unlikely.

The issue here is a bit different from what you describe. The issue is that the media can't be trusted and they are the medium through which so much of this information folters to the masses.

Absolute power grab. IMO, the only political upside is if he has no intention of running in the state anymore and is focused on posturing for a national election.

Good morning

The chidush isn't that he has national aspirations; it's that he's willing to risk reelection in 2022.
