Bonus Quotation of the Day…

is from page 60 of Scott Atlas’s important 2021 book, A Plague Upon Our House: My Fight at the Trump White House to Stop COVID From Destroying America (ellipses original to Atlas):

Against all common sense, the [Trump White House] Task Force’s focus on stopping the spread of infections at all costs – instead of protecting those known to be at highest risk – was abjectly failing. Whatever happened to the more limited goal of “flattening the curve” and avoiding hospital overcrowding? And since when was it even rational to think it was within our power to stop every … single … case? And beyond that, no one was talking about the enormous damage being done to families and children by the lockdowns.
