Top blogging in May

Here's a roundup of the most popular posts with readers in the last month.

No. 1 was an old post about religious discrimination and colleges, perhaps triggered by people clicking tags on one of my two posts about how the government can rightfully close churches in a pandemic under the First Amendment. The second of those two posts, which more explicitly called out sinful pastors for disregarding Romans 13, was at No. 3.

No. 2? Me calling out all the bullshit behind Jesse Ventura's alleged interest in chasing the Green Party presidential nomination.

No. 4? An even older blast from the past. And yes, Timothy Treadwell really was fucking nuts, and as a result, he is really dead.

No. 5 and No. 6 are closely tied; coronavirus by death toll became very much "not just the flu" in April. Sadly, we have too many lefty wingnuts joining just plain wingnuts in COVID conspiracy thinking.

No. 7 was Week 6 of the coronvirus-related splitoff of the Texas Progressives weekly roundup.

No. 8 was from the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. The oil price implosion means, if anything, it's more true than ever that there will be blood for oil.

No. 9? The Saudis are milking Arizona dry.

No. 10? Totally non-newsy. Baseball fans, especially St. Louis Cardinals ones, get to see me trace a nearly complete circle from the just-deceased Al Kaline to Don Denkinger of 1985 World Series fame.
