    Wisconsin will join these 13 anti-masker states if the Assembly votes to overturn Evers order


    Soon to be standing alone in the Big 10?


     

    According to AARP (State-by-State Guide to Facemask Requirement, updated 1/29/2021), 13 states do not currently have a statewide mask mandate:  Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee.

    The Associated Press mistakenly reported on 1/27/2021 that "Wisconsin would become one of only 10 states".

    Gov. Doug Burgum allowed North Dakota's statewide mask mandate to expire on January 18, although a number of cities in the state have extended a local mandate.

    Keeping tabs on authors in LINKcat: James R. Flynn




    New York Times, 1/25/2021
    Dr. Flynn, a committed leftist who had once been a civil rights organizer in Kentucky, felt instinctively that Dr. Jensen was wrong, and he set out to prove it. In 1980 he published a thorough, devastating critique of Dr. Jensen’s work — showing, for example, that many groups of whites scored as low on I.Q. tests as Black Americans. 
    But he didn’t stop there. Like most researchers in his field, Dr. Jensen had assumed that intelligence was constant across generations, pointing to the relative stability of I.Q. tests over time as evidence. But Dr. Flynn noticed something that no one else had: Those tests were recalibrated every decade or so. When he looked at the raw, uncalibrated data over nearly 100 years, he found that I.Q. scores had gone up, dramatically.

    Doris Whipple Cunningham (1932-2020) Warren High School class of 1951



    1951 Dragon yearbook

    1967 Warren City Directory

    • Cunningham Arnold R (Doris J; East Side Sandwich Shop) h110 Hammond Avenue
    • Whipple Leo W (Goldie E) fitter SWC h22 South South Street
    1983 Warren City Directory,
    • Whipple Leo W (Goldie E) retired h22 South South Street

    The popularity of Doris as a baby name is graphed here.  Let's take a look at hubby Arnold.


    Arnold spent 20 years (1912-1931) in the top 100, peaking at #89 in 1916.  After that it was a slow, increasingly bump decline until he eventually fell off the chart after 2004.

    New York Times, 1/22/2021
    Ms. Begley, a marquee journalist for Newsweek for more than 25 years and widely regarded as one of the pre-eminent science writers of her generation, was fast and trustworthy and could turn a phrase. She was versatile, too, writing with authority across a range of topics, routinely taking a mound of complex material and synthesizing it into a clear, compelling narrative.

      Assembly Speaker Robin Vos offers up a subtle dig at his State Senate counterpart's organizational and leadership skills

       

      Senate Majority Leader 
      Devin "Are My Pits Wet" LeMahieu 
      (R-Oostburg) and
      Assembly Speaker Robin Vos 
      (R-Rochester)


      Our job is to guarantee when we pass legislation we know what the ramifications are," he told reporters. "Unfortunately our Senate colleagues passed it, they didn’t necessarily do the same due diligence."
      Vos believes that all of the power of Wisconsin government should reside in his office.

      Lenka Perron stumbles out the QAnon exit door, but she still has that clown makeup to wash off

      New York Times, 1/29/2021
      She had mostly stopped cooking, and no longer took her daily walk. She was less attentive to her children, 11, 15 and 19, who were seeing a lot of the side of her face, staring down into her phone. It would all be worth it, she told herself. She was saving the country and they would benefit.
      [snip] 
      Five months and many more inconsistencies later, Ms. Perron, a consultant in the insurance industry in suburban Detroit, finally called it quits. “At some point I realized, ‘Oh, there’s a reason this doesn’t fit,’” she said. “We are being manipulated. Someone is having fun at our expense.”

      GET ME REWRITE: South Dakota governor Kristi Noem puts on a happy face



      New York Times, 1/27/2021
      Throughout the pandemic, Gov. Kristi Noem has advised South Dakotans to exercise “personal responsibility” and said she “trusted” her citizens to make the right decision when it came to coronavirus precautions. At the same time, she imposed almost no restrictions on the state and remains indifferent to low-stakes safety measures like mask wearing. As a result, South Dakota’s Covid-19 death rate is one of the worst in the nation — but Governor Noem’s approval ratings remain high. In this video, we unpack her deadly playbook for how to handle a pandemic all wrong while preserving a reputation for being credible and competent.

      2. disparaged face mask requirements for students
      3. encouraged attendance at superspreader bike rally in Sturgis
