For the benefit of new subscribers
(and thank you!)
I sent the old ‘Riley thinks COVID response on the left might be too alarmist’ piece today. A few days ago, I sent out this new piece, going after the anti-vax right and making the case for vaccination and sustained concern about COVID. So just so new folks can see, without having to scroll through old posts, how all over the place I have been on this!
Of course, I’d say the shift—or the ability to hold to the two positions articulated in those pieces—is perfectly consistent with the cautious, skeptical, open to evidence position we ought to pursue.
And I stand corrected in my pessimistic earlier statement that no conservative sites would touch the ‘anti-anti-vax’ piece. Public Discourse is going to publish a much-edited version, so I’ll link to that when it’s up.
