There's a device I need! I have trouble telling 3 feet from 6 feet. Do the devices also compute your government social compliance score and send it to the local tyrants?

As an added bonus, the device will have a locator, so that the police can find you if it records you violating the social distancing rules more than 2 times!

Monty Python had a similar idea in 1972. On "The Cycling Tour", a researcher described a tomato that could avoid danger. If it sensed a car crash, for example, it would, "come up your throat and out the window." A tomato did just that; and while shouting, "it worked! It worked!", the car crashed. It's funny what this stunning and brave new world will make you think about.

President Donald Trump has had a troubling relationship with the press from even before he took office, and given that he fights back with a vengeance, which is almost unheard of when it comes to Republicans, it would be a generous assessment to say that relationship is rocky.Which is not to say that Trump hasn’t made overtures to the media, even though an overwhelming majority tasked with covering the president are practically deranged in their hatred of the man.One such overture was seen Thursday, as Trump was asked whether he is considering attending a rocket launch next week at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

A big construction project at Gov. JB Pritzker’s Wisconsin horse farm has some questioning whether the governor is honoring the spirit of his own stay-at-home order. FOX 32 News watched Thursday as construction workers from Illinois crossed the border to work on the governor’s farm. Pritzker, though, says there is no double standard because construction workers are exempt. FOX 32 wandered over the Wisconsin border into Kenosha County and found more than 20 construction workers -- nearly all from Illinois -- helping build a massive new home and several outbuildings on Pritzker's horse farm
