It seems like only yesterday that I was posting links to the financial crisis legislation of 2008-9. Here we go again.
So far, we’ve had three bills to deal with the coronavirus epidemic and its economic consequences:
- HR 7048, the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (a/k/a the “CARES Act”), March 27, 2020. Wikipedia summary, full text PDF.
- HR 6201, the “Families First Coronavirus Response Act,” March 18, 2020. Wikipedia summary, full text PDF.
- HR 6074, the “Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act,” March 3, 2020. Wikipedia summary, full text PDF.
Careful printing the CARES Act—it’s over 300 pages.

I like this new PM. Not only does he elucidate Churchillian rhetoric, he sounds downright Churchillian himself. If he’s half as good in a crisis as Churchill was, it’s time to buy the FTSE.
A photo of the International Space Station as it transits the Sun. Note the complete absence of sunspots. Scientists think the next solar cycle starting in 2020 will be the weakest in 200 years.
Read this terrific interview with Doug Mills, the New York Times photographer who covers President Trump—and covered Presidents Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama as well.
Great photos too.
