Apparently, during London’s Great Plague, Samuel Pepys was the very first pandemic blogger .

Not only that, but Pepys' journals are one of the few written documents that survived the Great Fire of London and as such, give us an interesting perspective on that time. As the article referenced briefly alludes, Pepys' diaries contained many descriptions of his sexual adventures and in later years became a source of entertainment for British readers. And finally, which is where (one of) my interests (history of mathematics) entered the picture, Pepys says that he is going to pursue advanced studies in mathematics and learn—arithmetic!

I thought the anti-vaxxers were pretty wacky, but they've got nothing on the covidiots.

But at long last Twitter has put a fact checking muzzle on Trump

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/05/27/trump-twitter-label/

so the twit-in-chief is retaliating by threatening to shut down social media.

Unknown spreading of COVID? This certainly falls under the category of not good news.
