WEEKEND QUOTABLES

 

D.C. Teachers Union Pres. Elizabeth Davis

“The Chancellor’s plan to reopen our schools to in-person learning will disrupt the education of a vast majority of DCPS students. As educators, we do not believe this plan is good for our students or good for our schools.” -- Washington Post

Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants
If Trump refuses to accept the election results, "we will have to do the one thing that takes all power and control from the government or anyone with corporate interests in keeping this person in office, and that is withholding our labor.”  -- Guardian
D.T.

At a campaign rally event, Trump criticized the media for their continued coverage of the crisis, prompting chants of “Fire Fauci!” from supporters. “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until a little bit after the election. I appreciate the advice,” Trump told the crowd. -- Market Watch

PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro 

“Our elections are over when all the votes are counted. But if your lawyers want to try us, we’d be happy to defeat you in court one more time.” -- CNN

 Eugene Gu, MD

We need universal healthcare. Not just because the coronavirus pandemic is super scary right now but because many thousands of Americans have been dying without health insurance every day even before the pandemic. Yet we make certain deaths routine and other ones very political. -- Twitter

  1. To Eddie and others who have left comments that haven't been posted: I like hearing from you, but if you post anonymously and attack other individuals in you posts without using your real name, of course I won't post them. Even if you use your real name and post ads or other irrelevant or extraneous comments, they will end up in the circular file. Sorry.

  2. Yes indeed, universal healthcare is very much needed. If "we" can bail out companies, banks, corporations, etc., along with paying for politicians' healthcare, then surely we can have much better healthcare for "us". ಠ﹏ಠ

    I agree with Ms. Davis. Schools can't be reopened without a covid cure. Schools are usually too big to be cleaned adequately, nor will masks be enough protection.
