Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Hard not to think that this current crisis and the world's coming decoupling from China actually all started with a single Tweet from Houston Rocket's GM Daryl Morey in support of Hong Kong... "Watch establishment opinion on reopening change in a hurry once journalists and government workers are losing their jobs." - Glenn Reynolds... Counter-intuitive thought but now may be the perfect time to open up ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) to oil drilling. Hear me out - can we all agree that energy independence is vital for the US economy? Bill Clinton said he wouldn't do it because it would take five years for those fields to be productive. Well in five years Donald Trump will be leaving office and there's no guarantee that the next occupant of the White House won't give away the store. So drill baby drill now... "Everyone keeps quoting 'experts.' George Washington relied on expert medical advice also and they bled him to death." - Jame Altucher... A reminder but 10-years ago at the NFL Draft the crowd chanted "She said NO. She said NO" every time the Pittsburgh Steelers went to make a draft pick in response to Ben Roethlisberger's off-field allegations... I'm all for opening parks, beaches, golf courses, beer gardens, and outdoor Tiki bars. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Let's get people outside in the fresh air and sunlight...
