New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is appearing to be having technical difficulties as he acknowledged Wednesday on Twitter that his IP address had been "compromised" and used to "download child pornography." "Well, I’m on the phone with my computer security service, and as I understand it someone compromised my IP address and is using it to download child pornography," Krugman wrote in the tweet. "I might just be a random target. But this could be an attempt to Qanon me. It’s an ugly world out there."


Comeuppance is perhaps not a good word under these seedy circumstances. But so what . . .

I know you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I'm sorry, Krugman has ALWAYS looked like a seedy pervert you'd see hanging out by a schoolyard. He bears a striking resemblance to another all-time champion weirdo, Knicks* owner James Dolan. *Full disclosure: I am a long-time, long-suffering Knicks fan. Not yet in rehab/recovery, but at least I admit I have a problem...

Most routers get a dynamic IP address from the ISP and that is the IP address your computer is known by. Any time your router boots it gets a different ip. The isp can trace back from the MAC address of the router at any given time. That is he is full of it. Turn history off in your browser

For many years I had a customer who was a bit of an odd duck. Anyway, he'd been out of the country on business, and when he returned there to greet him were several car loads of FBI agents who cuffed him and hauled him away. It turned out the guy had been a distribution kingpin of degenerate child porn. He was convicted sent to prison and was never heard from again. Prison is not kind to white collar criminals who prey on children. I suspect Paul Krugman is finding himself in a precarious situation, as the Feds won't care if he won a Nobel Prize.

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg defended his record on race relations as President Trump and his campaign highlighted the former mayor's defense of the controversial “stop-and-frisk” practice. "President Trump’s deleted tweet is the latest example of his endless efforts to divide Americans. I inherited the police practice of stop-and-frisk, and as part of our effort to stop gun violence it was overused,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “By the time I left office, I cut it back by 95%, but I should've done it faster and sooner. I regret that and I have apologized.”

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he has secured the Republican votes needed to start President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and postpone a decision on witnesses or documents that Democrats want. McConnell is expected to launch the third impeachment trial in the nation’s history as soon as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sends the articles of impeachment to the Senate. She is set to meet late Tuesday with her leadership team. “We have the votes,” McConnell told reporters.

WASHINGTON ) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on Tuesday, acquiescing to mounting pressure from fellow Democrats and plunging a deeply divided nation into an election year clash between Congress and the commander in chief. The probe centers on whether Trump abused his presidential powers and sought help from a foreign government to undermine Democratic foe Joe Biden and help his own reelection. Pelosi said such actions would mark a “betrayal of his oath of office” and declared: “No one is above the law.”

Sanders called on President Trump to declare an “emergency” — something Trump already did on Jan. 31 — and then added that the president should essentially, be replaced: Because President Trump is unwilling and unable to lead selflessly, we must immediately convene an emergency bipartisan authority of experts to support and direct a response [to coronavirus] that is comprehensive, compassionate, and based first and foremost on science and fact.

The potential impact of the coronavirus might still be unknown, but the media hype is already plain as day. Particularly when you compare how they are covering this pandemic with the last one, which happened to occur when Barack Obama was in the White House. To get a sense of the differences in how the press treated these two outbreaks of brand new viruses, let’s look at how the New York Times and CNN – the bellwethers of mainstream journalism in print and on TV – covered each at similar points in the outbreak.

At last comes a measure of reassurance about the effects of the global pandemic: A woman who has fully recovered from coronavirus is a living, breathing beacon of hope. Elizabeth Schneider, 37, had a relatively mild experience with the sometimes-deadly virus, for which she treated herself at her home in Seattle, Washington. So far, the Northwestern state has suffered the highest number of deaths — at least 30 — in the US from the disease. Schneider, who has a doctorate in bioengineering, told the Agence France-Press she was sharing her story “to give people a little bit of hope.” Her story is more common than one might think:

Never let it be said that Bernie Sanders isn't doing his level best to spread fear and panic across America. At a doom-and-gloom press conference today, Sanders pleaded with Trump to pay for everyone to be tested for COVID-19, demanded paid leave for all, and generally transplanted his political agenda onto the coronavirus response that the U.S. should make. How convenient. But most of all, Sanders is telling Americans that they are in grave danger because the president has fallen down on the job. And the ultimate cost of Trump's incompetence will be hundreds of thousands of dead.

The Wuhan Virus is causing major disruptions in the U.S., from the stock market to the economy to social gatherings of all sorts. The virus itself is still not nearly up to the disease standards of the common flu or swine flu, even though the media hype of it has been off the charts. But that's not my point here. Rather, I see three upshots to this Wuhan epidemic in the U.S. There are probably more, but these three stand out in my mind. 1. Businesses now see that their precious supply chains and just-in-time inventory models are laden with risk.
