Finally: As the managing editor of the internet, I’d say that finally is the most overused word in headlines. But in this case, it fits. “House investigators said Thursday they have issued subpoenas to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers as part of their probe into the violent Jan. 6 insurrection, an extraordinary step that has little precedent and is certain to further inflame partisan tensions over the 2021 attack.” FINALLY. Can we just save time and add Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to the list? They betrayed America and still get to hold the power of senators. (Of course, McCarthy and the others will probably fight the subpoenas and still manage to run out the clock.)

+ One Million: WaPo (Gift Article): “To attempt to put the 1 million deaths in context, we plotted its damage over more than two years and compared the continuing death toll with the tolls from previous catastrophes in our history.”

+ Sick Pay: “Higher profits drove those companies’ stocks. The coronavirus pandemic has led to people delaying care, resulting in insurers retaining premiums that otherwise would have been paid out as medical claims. Years of large acquisitions also started paying off, as health insurance companies have morphed into conglomerates that also encompass lucrative drug benefits middlemen, physician groups, pharmacies, and a host of other services and providers.” Stat: Seven health insurance CEOs raked in a record $283 million last year. (People have the feeling the system is rigged because it is.)

+ Meat Grinder: “Trump officials ‘collaborated’ with the meatpacking industry to downplay the threat of Covid to plant workers and block public health measures which could have saved lives, a damning new investigation has found.” Trump officials and meat industry blocked life-saving Covid controls, investigation finds. (It’s all in the book, folks. It’s all in the book.)

+ Office Space: Stat of the day from the NYT: Just 8% of Manhattan office workers are back full time, survey shows.

+ Puttz: Greg Norman has sadly been trying to start an alternate golf tour backed by the Saudis. When asked about the 2018 murder and dismemberment of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Norman responded: “Look, we’ve all made mistakes and you just want to learn from those mistakes and how you can correct them going forward.” (It was a murder, not a bad chip shot.)

+ Boot’s Camp: “Some years ago, Boots bought a lotto ticket with a possible payout of $90 million. His cowboy companions asked what he’d do if he won. When Boots failed to come up with anything, his wife, Nelda, answered for him: ‘He’d go to the barn and saddle up the next morning.'” Texas Monthly: The Bronc-busting, Cow-punching, Death-defying Legend of Boots O’Neal. “He’s pushing ninety and still saddling up at the Four Sixes Ranch. Just don’t call him ‘the last cowboy.'”
