In today's "both sides are the same" news:

Quote
Experts on comparative politics say the GOP is an extremist outlier, no longer belonging in the same conversation with “normal” right-wing parties like Canada’s Conservative Party (CPC) or Germany’s Christian Democratic Party (CDU).

Instead, it more closely resembles more extreme right parties — like Viktor Orbán’s Fidesz in Hungary or Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AKP in Turkey — that have actively worked to dismantle democracy in their own countries

Well there's 75 Republican candidates who are either Qanon tards or happy sucking up to Qanon tards. Given Qanon is a Neo-Nazi cult, that tells you all you need to know.

Wait...that got through international mail screening? And there were six previous letters in Texas? I can't say I know US procedures well, but that's fucking suspicious as shit.

Ah, I hadn't been following it too closely but I thought it had gotten further than that.

The one to the WH was stopped at the USPS.  The ones to Texas, I don't know.

https://academictimes.com/first-vaccine-to-fully-immunize-against-malaria-builds-on-pandemic-driven-rna-tech/

Sometimes a news story reminds me of something Howl said many years ago about how 99% of engineers have their head up completely up their ass but the remaining 1% can put a man on the moon.

Some of the advancements for the current vaccine are apparently giving a new angle at potentially dealing with malaria. A.K.A. the cause of death of half of all the humans who have ever lived. At least solving it in humans, probably not feasible to eliminate the wildlife reservoir and completely smallpox it. But still.
