Extreme policies, average statistics raise questions around Florida's Covid-19 data

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, policy decisions in Florida have been among the most extreme -- often among the first, the only or the few.

Greg Abbott's delusional ideas about Covid

Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to "open Texas 100%," lifting all Covid-19 restrictions and end his state's mask mandate on March 10, is a political ploy that places his poll ratings above the health and safety of 29 million Texans.

Texas power outages reveal the limits of partisanship

On March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico. Texas has the distinction of having been an independent nation before joining the United States. The history books say Texas joined the Union in 1845. Sometimes I wonder if Texas ever really, fully joined the Union -- especially on days like this, when while the US remains in the grips of a capricious, widespread lethal contagion, the governor ended Texas' mask mandate Tuesday and declared that all businesses in his state can be open -- 100% -- in a matter of days.
