One time my off-service co-intern in the MICU asked me how to do a transfer note because up to that point, all his patients had died. He had not yet transferred anyone to the floor. If you wonder what being a resident in the MICU can be like amid a COVID surge. It is very dark.

“We escaped,” Mr. Cohen wrote in his account on Facebook. “We weren’t released or freed.” So why did law enforcement take credit for rescuing them?
I spoke this morning with Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker, who was held hostage on Saturday at his synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. He has a remarkable story. nytimes.com/2022/01/17/us/te…

I was invited to give an MLK speech today and a small number of members of the group hosting me wrote and then leaked emails opposing my giving this speech, as it dishonored Dr. King for me to do so. They called me a "discredited activist" "unworthy of such association with King"

Preprint from Israel finds that people who have breakthrough COVID *after* two-doses of the vaccines, are no more likely to report Long Covid symptoms compared with people who have not been infected at all. So they found that vaccination brings Long Covid risk back to baseline.
We revised the paper and not only are #covid19 cases who got 2 #vaccine doses reporting much less #longcovid symptoms than unvaccinated-they're reporting no more than uninfected people- suggesting vaccination brings these symptoms back to baseline medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/…

I was in charge of Discontents this week, so I wrote a little bit on the media outrage about a criminal getting a transplant, which transplant cases they care about, and what counts as injustice. that plus the weekly Discontents roundup! discontents.substack.com/p/w…

Honestly, you’d think the FBI would just take the day off, but every year they give it a try.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” This #MLKDay2022 and every day, the #FBI remains dedicated to service and committed to protecting our communities.

What we need to talk more about is Affinity Fraud. rationalwiki.org/wiki/Affini… Crypto is running out of mass-market suckers, so is marketing to smaller groups on the basis "I'm one of you, would I scam you?" the answer is yes, they absolutely will. all crypto promoters are grifters

CDC telling America masks didn’t work, just because we didn’t have enough, didn’t exactly go over well and was one of the most destructive decisions in the pandemic. It’s unclear to me why they feel that repeating that same mistake today w rapid tests makes sense.

A compromise I think everyone could agree with is that Djokovic gets to play BUT only after an opening ceremony where he’s pinned down on the court and vaccinated with a comically gigantic needle

Noncitizen, nonimmigrant travelers (like Djokovic) are required to be fully vaccinated to enter the United States, just like Australia, and no one is allowed to lie on their visa applications under the laws of either country. cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nco…
