At the Des Moines Register, Walter Suza takes issue with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Kevin McDermott highlights the hypocrisy:
The Biden administration has rightly vowed there will be no federal vaccine passport or vaccination requirement of any kind. The idea of a vaccine passport isn’t about government control over citizens, but business’ control over the safety of their customers. Yet the same Republicans who have argued that private businesses should be allowed to discriminate against, say, same-sex couples are suddenly all civil-rightsy when it comes to discriminating against the next potential Typhoid Mary.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gene Collier looks at some news that hasn’t gotten much attention in the media frenzy surrounding the Chauvin trial. A snippet:
But where the Mueller Report produced a detailed framework of the Trump campaign’s relationship to Russian intelligence, the Treasury report explains in full bloom the open channel the campaign maintained with Russian operatives, specifically through the role played in the “Russia hoax” by Konstantin Kilimnik.
So that Russia hoax? Not a hoax.

The editorial board of The Roanoke Times punctures the pretense behind right-wing claims that there’s something called “cancel culture.” A snippet (emphasis added):
If we eat all our peas, we’ll get dessert.
If we pull the cat’s tail, we’ll probably get scratched.
If we put our hand on a hot stove, we’ll get burned.
These are simple lessons, even if they’re sometimes disagreeable. We really hate peas and pulling the cat’s tail is kind of fun, although getting clawed to bloody shreds isn’t.
So why, then, all the fuss over something now being called “the cancel culture”?
This is simply a larger version of that childhood lesson: Actions have consequences. Those who object to the so-called “cancel culture” just don’t like those consequences.

The Hippocratic Oath is sworn by doctors. If you come to a doctor complaining of a non-existent condition, the doctor will not treat you for it. Rather, he will accept the medical evidence that you have no such condition (and perhaps refer you counseling).
