I love Texas but something's wrong

On March 2, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico. Texas has the distinction of having been an independent nation before joining the United States. The history books say Texas joined the Union in 1845. Sometimes I wonder if Texas ever really, fully joined the Union -- especially on days like this, when while the US remains in the grips of a capricious, widespread lethal contagion, the governor ended Texas' mask mandate Tuesday and declared that all businesses in his state can be open -- 100% -- in a matter of days.

Alyssa Milano: Pay moms for getting us through this crisis

In December, following the Thanksgiving holiday when lockdowns again became necessary because millions of people selfishly decided to ignore Covid-19 guidelines, the economy lost 140,000 jobs. On its own, that's bad enough, but it's not even close to the whole story. The truly shocking part is that women made up 100% of those job losses, losing a total of 156,000 jobs, while men gained 16,000 jobs that month. While women fared better than men in the January jobs report, 275,000 left the labor force that month.
