DeSantis hires Ohio Uber driver to rig COVID stats | Fred Grimm

Ron DeSantis examined the sparse resume and erroneous assertions of Kyle Lamb and saw attributes lesser executives might have missed. It must have been Lamb’s dazzling combination of inexperience and inexpertise that convinced the governor to hire a sports-blogger-turned-Uber-driver from Columbus, Ohio, to analyze Florida’s pandemic stats (bypassing 700,000 unemployed Floridians, some of whom surely boast a comparable dearth of public-health literacy). Advertisement Uber’s loss was Florida’s gain. Lamb, 40, announced on his Twitter feed Nov. 6 that he has been hired as a “data analyst on...

Trump’s tyranny is the moral equivalent of treason | Editorial

Our nation, the world’s oldest democracy, stands at the doorway of a dictatorship that seemed unimaginable before Donald J. Trump attained the presidency. In his desperation to retain the office he fairly won four years ago and fairly lost on November 3, Trump has bared the mind and menace of a tyrant. There is no better word for his conduct although the word “traitor” also comes to mind. Advertisement Since the Constitution narrowly defines treason as “levying war” against the United States or in “adhering to their enemies,” Trump’s machinations might not qualify as that crime, which is...

Nov. 2006: Where's Jake Scott? Dave Hyde found him.

HANALEI, HAWAII — In the last state. On the last island. Down the last road. At the last speck of a no-stoplight town before the United States drops into the Pacific Ocean. This is where sports' reigning hermit possibly lives, protected by friends, geography and a six-foot hedge. Public records say he owns this unassuming, two-story home. But no family member or former teammate will confirm it. No telephone number is available. And there's only a decades-old football photo to measure the man in the front yard against. "Hi, Jake Scott?" I ask. "Jake's up in the house,'' the man says,...
