Webtacular World Issue # 323, March 1, 2020

Greetings Webtaculators! The Democratic candidates are slowly whittling themselves down, and some day, we might just have a candidate.  Just to be clear, as of this writing, here’s where we are at with the delegates have declared their vote – Sanders with 58, Biden with 50, Warren with 8, and Klobuchar with 7.  There are roughly 4000 delegates in total. This whole process takes too long, not enough voters participate, and the media does its best to make nonsense spoken by talking heads meaningful.  Regardless, I will be voting on Tuesday (that’s your day to vote, Californians).  I hope you all do as well.  On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: How To Fail At Leadership
Why: Because Donald Trump, through Mike Pence, will kill Americans with their callousness and stupidity.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Global Pandemics And The Economy
Why: Because most stock indices fell by around 10% last week, largely driven by Coronavirus fears.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: The Silence Is Deafening
Why: Because the courts seem to want America to fall apart just as much as GOP does. The Court’s suggestion that the House could withhold funding in order to achieve its goals is absolute nonsense.  In somewhat better news for the judicial process, Harvey Weinstein was found guilty.

SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: What The Coronavirus Actually Is
Why: Because calling the coronavirus “The Coronavirus” is an extremely dumb thing to name it – mainly because there are a slew of viruses, like the common cold, that fall under the general term “coronavirus.” Leave it to poorly explained health cases plus general human stupidity to have things like causing a massive fall in the purchase of Corona, the beer.  WASH YOUR HANDS.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Waiting For The Return
Why: Because basketball without Curry has been lackluster (for Warriors fans).

TELEVISION THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: A Soccer Mom With Angst
Why: Becuase Soccer Mommy is 22 year old singer-songwriter Sophia Allison writes music like it’s still the 90’s. It is very good.
