Daniel Tiger is trying to rescue children from Trumps' stupidity.

 Look, I'm tired of people making excuses for the fact that the Coronavirus is STILL SPREADING in our "President thinks YouTube doctor is smarter than established experts" country.

Aside from calling my science-skeptic friends idiots, I haven't done much about it aside from work on taking care of my kids.

Thankfully, Daniel Tiger and PBS take their work seriously, and know how important they can be in a child' life.

So, they have taken it upon themselevs to make a special Daniel Tiger episode about mask wearing and COVID-19. It airs today, and I'm about to sit down with my kids to watch it.

Look up your local listings, or watch it on the PBS app- even if you don't have kids.

Ok, bye.

John Oliver Just blew it out of the water- U.S. History

I freely admit that I have al;ways enjoyed John Oliver's show. I try to watch it every week, and I usually learn something, and occasionally have my mind expanded on a few things.

This week, he absolutely made what I  think is the best episode of his career, and I think what makes it so great is that he's a Brit, and therefore has a wider view on the way we teach history than an American might.

It's almost like he comes off as a surprised, but interested party here, and there's no "partisan" angle to this, just honest debate about what ramifications there are to teaching history badly.

I can't recommend it enough, and I hope you watch it right now!

Also- it's crazy if you haven't looked at this simple way to make money:

My GAWD- this NIKE ad is amazing.

I mean, I'm not even a sports fan, and this almost brought me to tears.

This editing is really amazing, and the message... wow- they did it again:

What if all of th footage we used from now on were repurposed footage?

How many stories could be told anyway?

Could you make money just sharing videos?
