I poured my whole heart out into this little book. "My Father Left Me Ireland" comes out April 29th. It's a romance between an American son and his absent Irish father. It's a small nationalist rebellion against the experience of exile. Pre-order now. amazon.com/My-Father-Left-Me…

People can buy a copy of Taking. Charge of Your Fertility and learn more in an afternoon than your GP could tell you unless they had read it.
Remarkably depressing letter re lack of knowledge of fundamentals of fertility, even among female physicians. "There is no reliable time in any American’s life — including our physicians’ — when they are taught even the basic reality and limitations of how to become pregnant."

Everything is based or cringe.
It’s not how it’s intended here but IMO “the sophistication of our thinking is determined to a large degree by the sophistication of the language we hear used to describe our world” is the strongest case you can make for the positive impact of social media newyorker.com/news/essay/on-…

Optics over substance leads to awful outcomes. There are translators and other SIVs staring death in the face, but Klain wanted a big number, so they grabbed whoever could get over the fence/past the guards. Now this. foxnews.com/politics/fbi-inv…

The moral outrage shown by the administration - WHICH CREATED THIS BORDER CRISIS THROUGH ITS WILLFUL, RECKLESS POLICY - is based on a lie, a lie eagerly magnified by a media that cannot be trusted to be honest about anything.
Sorting through my footage from the border. I was in the river during the viral incident between a Haitian migrant and mounted CBP agent. It's shaky - but here's what I captured.

We already have lamb.
Rather trying to replicate existing meat, could we synthesize an even more delicious meat

I would feel like we could hang out about ten times at the range.
How would you feel / react if you found out your next door neighbor had over 40 guns and over 10,000 rounds of ammunition?

TFW you realize you left the place dependent on Erdogan for border control, Chairman XI for industry, Putin for energy, and the Biden and Boris for defense.

Lmao, judging from the left panel of this chart, you were probably safer in a trench during WW1 than in a hospital today.
This is just remarkable. SARS-cov-2 rna eliminated from hospital ward air by air filtration. Which also removed a number of other bacterial and fungal pathogens. medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/… The before-after here is amazing. A who’s who of nosocomial pathogens. @VicLeungIDdoc

A thoughtful & engaging review of Strategy of Denial from @DanielLarison. I obviously don't agree with a number of his key points, but it's fair-minded and clearly identifies points of tension and hard calls. If my book spurs this kind of engagement, all the better!

Exact same thing as the UK, the government ignoring the advice of their scientists so that the government can meet the demand of the people who they panicked.
After CDC director Walensky overruled her advisory committee on boosters, the WH adds a Biden speech on vaccines at 9:45 AM
