Happy Saturday from Washington, where policymakers and public health officials name-check science while ignoring it when implementing measures to fight COVID-19. Victor Davis Hanson has thoughts on where this is going. Plus: the president neglects the toll of human trafficking on minors; thousands of Haitians wait to be processed at the border in Texas; and the mayor of San Francisco disregards the city’s mask mandate. On this date in 1793, President George Washington lays the cornerstone to the U.S. Capitol, which won’t be completed for nearly a century. Have a great weekend.
