Phil Spector: saint or sinner? Yes, yes, he may have imprisoned some of his wives and children. He may have forced his children to perform sex acts. He may have murdered a woman he picked up at a bar. But we’ve all done it. So don’t be getting on your high horse about it all.

It’s no worse than priests who deny their faith under threat of torture and death, and their sacraments are still valid. Makes you think, eh?

Daily Deaths

I’ve included a link to my Covid-19 daily deaths page again.

This used to be based on data from the EU, but this is no longer available. Instead, I’ve had to recode it to make use of multiple data sources. Daily records are based on data available from the WHO.

There are probably quite a few bugs, so I’d appreciate it if you could point these out to me.

I’ll try and update this daily.
