Synopsis:

Flat Earth and SARS-CoV-2 Plus Which Webb?

We talked about the desire by some to rename the already renamed James Webb Space Telescope to something that doesn't honor an outright anti~gay bigot. James Webb actually purged gay men and lesbians from the State Department and NASA.

We also talked about the pandemic, and the convergence of conspiracy disinformation consumers. A major flat Earth proponent was also a virulent anti~vaxxer. He died this month.

We once again made a dent in our mail backlog.
