The added muscle strength helps protect against injury from falls. Squats also improve balance, which decreases the likelihood of falls. For the record, one-third of those over the age of 65 falls each year and falls are the leading cause of death due to injury among seniors.

It does not deserve any special, pseudo-sounding, political movement name so that reporters, editors and columnists can have a shorthand way of saying bigots.

All the "dumb" GOP governors The real question, of course, is whether these politicians are truly dumb, or just playing a cynical role that makes them sound dumb to a majority of Americans, but enhances their reputation with the core group of Republicans who vote for them, often against their own self-interest.

There Will Be a Dr. in the White House The editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page chose a misogynistic, homophobic, arch conservative to write an insulting hit job on Dr. Jill Biden, for having the temerity to earn a doctorate in education and not hiding the fact. Why do conservatives have such an inferiority complex when it comes to education? Or is it all an act?

Wear a mask, don't be like Rudy What is it with Americans especially a lot of Republicans who won't wear a mask? It's the easiest and best way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, along with proper social distancing. If everybody does it, fewer people get it, fewer people die, the sooner we can go back to work and we don't have to wear masks. That's not even new math. It's just common sense and decency.
