    Found this interesting because it's a smart interview of someone saying very, very dumb things.

    Epstein, a professor at New York University School of Law, published the article on the Web site of the Hoover Institution, on March 16th. In it, he questioned the World Health Organization’s decision to declare the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, said that “public officials have gone overboard,” and suggested that about five hundred people would die from covid-19 in the U.S. Epstein later updated his estimate to five thousand, saying that the previous number had been an error.

    It's worth a watch. I barely care about baseball, and only barely about the Mariners from being a native Seattleite, but I found the history interesting. There's arson and thumbtacks (separately), if that helps persuade you.
