The Cathedral of St. John the Divine is a place where pagan gods have been praised in worship, but which will withhold participation in medical care if it has to welcome conservative Evangelical Christians under its eaves.

New paper from Lawrence Livermore Labs estimates that the R0 factor for Covid is 5.7. That means each person who gets it infects nearly 6 others. This is really, really high, and really, really bad. wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/7 … twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

“I’m going to make macarons,” the girl said.

“It’s 8:40 at night!” I said.

“I don’t have school tomorrow,” she said.

An inarguable point.

The macarons are done. She’s filled them with lemon curd.

They are fantastic.

You should have a 13 yr old macaroniste in your house. twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

RIP, Mort Drucker, whose caricatures revealed as much as they ridiculed. In your memory, we will continue to satirize even in dark times, and laugh like Idiots while doing it. twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Read the entire despicable Nature editorial. They condemn not Xi Jinping, but Donald Trump. This is the kind of lickspittle rewriting of history thing you would expect under a totalitarian regime: nature.com/articles/d41586-020 … twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

So shoot me -- I think it would be hilarious to watch Larry David struggle to live by the Rule of St. Benedict. It may or may not be the case that all this unwished-for cloistering is driving me crazy. /end twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

to spend the war pretending to be a Benedictine abbot, and learning their routines, and engaging in monastic work, because the occupying Nazi officer could show up at any point. Hilarity ensues. OK, Hollywood, where's my check? twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Germany has invaded. Then Area Jew Larry David happens to show up on the abbey's doorstep seeking shelter. A quick-thinking monk, realizing that the dead abbot is a dead ringer for Larry David, dresses Larry in the abbot's robes before the Nazis arrive. Larry has twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Just woke up from a 12-hour sleep. Mono is doing a number on me. But it gives me crazy dreams, and here, from my dream, is my pitch for a new comedy series. It's set in a Benedictine monastery in Nazi-occupied France. In the pilot, the abbot dies when he hears news that twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Some don’t seem to understand how utterly horrific it is to die of this disease.

The people you’re happy to sacrifice because they’ve had “a good run” will suffocate slowly, despite being on 100% oxygen, surrounded only by strangers in full PPE. No family, friends or funeral. twitter.com/johnkehoe23/status … twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

For a very long time I've wanted to see the 1980s-era Edgar Reitz series "Heimat," but I can't find it on disc to rent or streaming. Does anybody know if it's available with English subtitles? twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Why haven't they made the miniseries that I want to watch tonight? The one about the middle-aged writer who spends a year in an Alsatian beer-brewing monastery, and who rediscovers the joy of life, and takes daily walks to the village café to eat, drink and meet bohemian Tories. twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Outrageous! That Baton Rouge pastor taunts Christians staying at home in pandemic as 'cowards.' He buses in 675 children to weekly services. Says that if his flock dies, they've done it for God and freedom. This man is a cult leader. theamericanconservative.com/dr … twitter.com/roddreher/status/1

Texas banned temporarily banned elective abortions until the coronavirus emergency passes. The plaintiffs suing Texas claimed that this is an infringement on the constitutional right to an abortion. A 2-1 majority on the panel disagreed. theamericanconservative.com/dr … twitter.com/roddreher/status/1
