"diversity," "fetus," "transgender," "vulnerable," "entitlement," "science-based" and "evidence-based"

We've entered a whole new world people. And I don't like it here.

“I want to assure you there are no banned words at CDC,” Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald‏ tweeted at the top of a thread Sunday morning, which is currently pinned.

Instead, several sources have tried to clarify that the language changes were merely suggestions to help make the agency’s budget more palatable to some Republicans and ease its passage.

Man, that isn't good. We've had some train accidents around here on the East Coast. I'm not all that far from the Chase, Maryland disaster and there was a pretty bad accident in Philadelphia more recently. Anyway, I'm sending my thoughts out there.

Not often you get something that sounds like a cross between And Then There Were None and In Cold Blood right in your backyard.
