Pandemic-related liability shields are saving lives

Little noticed among the plethora of writings about the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines, and other actual or potential drug therapies is the topic of liability prevention. When pharmaceutical makers are compelled to produce vaccines or other treatments to combat pandemics, they understandably may be reluctant to do so if it could result in billions of dollars of liability exposure. The law should provide clear protections for these innovating manufacturers now so we are better prepared for future pandemics and other health crises.

Kamala Caves to Anti-Semitism … Again

The decision by Vice President Kamala Harris to attend Thursday’s inauguration of incoming Honduras President Xiomara Castro proves that anti-Semitism’s growing malignancy within the Democratic Party is not confined to the halls of Congress.
