Good news: The first episode of the Very Serious podcast is out! I talked with @ebruenig and @asymmetricinfo about "balancing well-being and the economy" when the economy is part of our well-being. We also looked at why customers are going psycho.

. @KristiNoem on Fox: "The bill that I'm bringing... says that when a heartbeat is detected ... abortions should not be an option." 5 minutes later, on COVID: "We should be... letting people have personal responsibility, letting people make the best decisions for their families."

I would not expect to see a lot of vaccine mandates in force a year from now, except in the sorts of settings where you’d see other vaccines mandated. I’ve been a supporter, but costs of the policy are rising and the benefits falling.

Lots of outrage when Glenn Youngkin reversed Virginia’s vaccine mandate for state workers. Pretty muted reaction to Ned Lamont (D) doing same in Connecticut.
