      This is confusing and jarring on many levels.

      Why isn't the fight against COVID a humanity-wide, global effort? That shocks me. It's hard for me to even think about the political warfare happening underneath that larger, bigger human failure.

      If I was the president of any nation on Earth right now I would absolutely have hackers working day and night to get as much medical and scientific information as possible by any means necessary in order to save lives and prevent ongoing calamity. (Isn't every country in the world currently doing this?)

      Also: Twitter got hacked to shit today. Oops :P That's a bigger story.
