    Just because (I'm in a boring teleconference), I tried "058 new cases" in google search. Came back with over 18,000,000 results. All on the first page had 058 new cases somewhere in either the title or description.

    From your opinion piece, this paragraph makes no sense... If you make less than $75,000 you will get $1,200. If you pay less in taxes, you probably make less than $75,000 - which means you will get the $1,200.

    Senate passes coronavirus relief plan to expand paid leave, sends it to Trump

    Actually it passed the House Saturday morning, but had to be brought back to the House floor Monday evening for administrative corrections. So the Senate took maybe a day and a half. But hey, no use splitting hairs over it, right? You will use your "truth" and others will use theirs...

    Trump delays release of economic package

    Got it! :) so because of testing no more than 827 people have died, in Italy, because of Covid-19. But because the US isn't testing the 31 confirmed deaths as of now is totally wrong and should be in the thousands?

    NYPD lied about national security to get journalist info

    Truthfully, I can not understand why the NYPD would reference "cable operators". I have not looked into the legal designations of Twitter or if they have been designated as a "Cable Operator" in other areas of New York law. I was just commenting that just because the Patriot Act is cited...

    NYPD lied about national security to get journalist info
