    Dave Pell's NextDraft - Regular Contributions

    Mrs Hat made me aware of a guy who writes very, very well and provides daily interesting articles (some short, some longer). I have been following him for a while now and thought it might be of interest to others here.

    I'm on his mailing list and I'll post a a bit here and there.

    IS THERE A DOCTOR (LEFT) IN THE HOUSE?
    While vaccine progress is surpassing the most optimistic projections, the virus spread is living up to our worst fears. As the US tops 250,000 deaths, more than 3 million Americans are estimated to be contagious with the virus.

    + The surge is proving to be unmanageable for many hospitals. 900 on Mayo Clinic staff have contracted coronavirus in last two weeks. And that's part of a broader trend: Twenty-two percent of American hospitals don't have enough workers right now.

    + Chuck Grassley, second oldest senator (and third in the line of succession to the presidency) tests positive for COVID-19. From the halls of power to the smallest towns, Covid doesn't care who you are or where you are. Texas Monthly: COVID Is Everywhere, Even in the Last COVID-Free County.

    THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH
    "The Justice Department spent years investigating Cienfuegos, who served as Mexico's top defense official from 2012 to 2018 under then-president Enrique Peña Nieto.
    Prosecutors said they discovered thousands of exchanges that showed that he was also working with the H-2 cartel to expand its territory and move drugs into the United States.

    It appeared to be a blockbuster case, revealing deep connections between the Mexican state and the country's criminal underworld." U.S. judge drops narco-trafficking charges against former Mexican defense minister. (This is such a meta drug war story. You can't go after one dirty official because they know about the other dirty officials.
    And I'm sure this deal has nothing to do with the fact that Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador still refuses to congratulate Joe Biden and admit the US election is over. So many people have died in this phony, failed, farce of a war.)
