Now his wife, Julia Letlow, is hoping to fill his seat herself. “Everything in my life and in my marriage has prepared me for this moment," she said in a statement. "My motivation is the...

Before we go further, I should point out that this is the flagship public university in a very red state governed by a Republican legislature and a conservative Democratic governor. The LSU Faculty Senate has a proposal before it — one that a source within the university tells me is fully expected to pass.

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...
