I have a long night of work ahead of me, so I don’t know what time it is.
1. Res ipsa loquitur. Oopsie! “Health company apologizes for falsely telling 600,000 US military members they were infected with coronavirus”
Tricare apologized for a poorly worded email that implied the recipient had been infected with the Wuhan virus.

Trejo claims to have only done it just once. Oh! Well that’s OK, then!
Question 1: Is this a violent offense?
Question 2: Why would any police officer chance ordering a beverage at Starbucks? Continue reading
