Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm and humor.
This week’s topics include unemployment claims, COVID-19 cases & deaths, record-high cases, Trump’s federal judges, play ball, Montana Law Enforcement Academy, Trump’s disapproval rating, the death penalty, 2020 Census, Trump & coronavirus, a Tennessee dog, miles of border wall, plus much more!
