Thought the postal service were in a financial bind?  How in the heck are they coming up with the money to cover the cost?  This is not what they are for! :angry:

Good intent but bad idea.

Idaho pastor who prayed against mask mandate

is in intensive care with coronavirus

"It has been clearly and scientifically proven that many masks do not aid in the prevention of Covid-19 transmission," Pastor Paul Van Noy said in July.
 
"One additional thought for those who are believers in Jesus. There is no need to fear the cause or effect of Covid-19," he added.

White House blocked FDA commissioner from testifying to House panel

Stephen Hahn has worked to reassert his agency's independence amid pressure from Trump.

"The White House has blocked FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn from testifying to a House committee about his agency’s pandemic response, angering the panel's top Democrats who said they have pressing questions about political interference at the agency.

“The American people deserve to hear Commissioner Hahn’s response to those concerns during a public hearing and what actions he is taking to ensure that the agency’s COVID-19 decisions remain science-based,”.......

NEA president says Azar and DeVos should resign over school reopening guidance-

......"Donald Trump's disregard for science has already cost 200,000 American lives during this pandemic.

Secretaries Alex Azar and Betsy DeVos are accomplices in this malicious incompetence," Pringle wrote.

"It is appalling that they have risked the lives of students and educators in running roughshod over the CDC’s apolitical process for providing vital health guidance to the American people," she continued, referring to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ...........

"State and local leaders relied on this guidance when they decided to reopen school buildings that are now becoming super spread sites. How many students and educators will we lose to COVID-19 before this administration prioritizes science over partisan politics?," Pringle wrote. ........

The Emmys are live and virtual this year: ‘What could possibly go wrong?’

LOS ANGELES — Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel and an alpaca sharing the spotlight. Winners accepting at home in designer pajamas or maybe yoga pants. More than 100 chances for a balky internet connection to bring Sunday’s ceremony to a crashing halt.

Come for the awards, stay for the suspense of the first big Hollywood ceremony to attempt a live — but socially distanced — broadcast amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“What could possibly go wrong?” Ian Stewart said drolly.........

Fortunately, the quick-witted Kimmel “loves live TV and loves chaos,” Stewart said. “I think he’s actually hoping things do go wrong, to tell you the truth.”.........

Postal worker COVID-19 cases tripled over the summer.
 
One of the problems: USPS has little staff doing contact tracing.
 
In Atlanta, the ratio is one nurse for about 12,500 employees.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Poorly Protected Postal Workers Are Catching COVID-19 by the Thousands.

It’s One More Threat to Voting by Mail.

More than 50,000 workers have taken time off for virus-related reasons, slowing mail delivery.

The Postal Service doesn’t test employees or check their temperatures, and its contact tracing is erratic.

Obviously some other arm of government was proposing to utilize the postal service for this.  The post office does not have the authority to make or buy masks.

It was a good idea, not a bad one.  It might have saved tens of thousands of lives.  Tens of thousands.  Not 4 in Libya but tens of thousands.

Trump said he didn't want to panic people so no masks.  HS.  He didn't want to panic the stock market.  He could have galvanized the people to fight the virus as would his hero Churchill have done.  Trump's basic evil corrupt instincts took over and knee-capped what could have been his shining hour.
