The following post would be banned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Whenever I criticize some action by government officials, I try to make sure that what I’m writing is evidence-based. Otherwise I might be vulnerable to charges that I was motivated mainly by political bias and was acting with a sense of entitlement. Fortunately, this post is grounded in reporting by The Washington Post, so I think I should be fine.

Of course, not every post needs to be science-based. For instance, in writing about issues involving transgender people, it is perfectly valid to argue for their inclusion in mainstream society simply on the grounds of diversity without getting into the technical aspects of whether sex selection takes place at the level of a fetus or if it is something that happens with children as they get older.

In any event, I hope you have enjoyed my small attempt at keeping myself entertained. Perhaps it will help you take your mind off the horror of having a CDC that can no longer be taken seriously.
