  • Putting feelings before facts, ignorant protestors attack Rand Paul and tell him to, “Say her name.”

    Reason’s Robby Soave notes the irony. The her in question is Breonna Taylor, and Senator Paul has done more than just say her name.

  • “I don’t think there’s been a more politicised and controversial medicine than hydroxychloroquine.”

    So says Prof. Nick White, one of the scientists involved in a large-scale hydroxychloroquine trial organized by England’s Oxford University.
