No I don't think he has kids.

The pandemic has broke a lot of our brains. Nate's has just gotten a bad case of it.

Note, this isn't even a direct criticism from me of "open schools" takes. People are free to have legit cost-benefit debates about under what circumstances and for how long we should tolerate school closing or remote learning.

"this is Iraq bad" is such an unbelievable belief off that. Like straight off a cliff. And he's double downed basically. Hasn't even tried to adjust the statement from what I've seen.

For a data guy, he sure is violating the correlation does not equal causality mantra that is drummed into people in grad school.

He blew it up into saying he thought schools should never have been closed.

I, too, often confuse twitter comments for grad school.

His last tweet in that thread sums up where I'm at:



So many of these people are just pissed they have to take care of their kids, or worse, don't even have kids are just pissed they have...wear a mask from the door of the restaurant to their table. But you can't complain about those things, so you frame it this way and use The Children to get your bad ideas across. It's borderline repugnant.

Worth reading the original thread/back and forth where Silver did the Iraq tweet. Just an all out evisceration.

I don't know who that person is IRL, but it's a good Twitter account to follow.

I was surprised to learn that Dick Butkus is still alive, and is apparently clobbering people into another dimension on Twitter:

I didn't want to turn the Politics thread into a Matty thread, so I came here.

I guess we can say the same about the gun huggers too and the need to ban guns. Except substitute overeducated women for uneducated inbred white folk. Substitute microwave dinner for roadkill

Except for all of the people dragging him for it.

I mean, what do you expect to happen? He gets tackled by the horsefeathers Tweet Police and removed from Congress for being bad at the internet?
