Just as we were getting used to the idea of a European COVID mutation spreading to the states, scientists in California have found a new, domestic mutation of the virus: CAL.20C. We’ll talk about it, plus Parler fallout, Clubhouse and fireworks.
Here’s everything we talked about today:
- “New California Variant May Be Driving Virus Surge There, Study Suggests” from The New York Times
- “Judge refuses to reinstate Parler’s Amazon account” from The Verge
- “Facebook Refers Trump Account Suspension to Oversight Board” from The Wall Street Journal
- And, of course, this ode to Janet Yellen
