In other news, federal authorities arrested a man for attacking the capitol who was wearing a t-shirt that read "I Was There" when they arrested him.

Miller’s shirt had a photograph of former President Donald Trump, and it said, “Take America Back” and “I Was There, Washington D.C., January 6, 2021,” federal prosecutors noted in a court filing Monday. [...]

After Miller posted a selfie showing himself inside the Capitol building, another Facebook user wrote, “bro you got in?! Nice!,” Miller replied, “just wanted to incriminate myself a little lol,” prosecutors said.

Mission accomplished?

Meanwhile, the Biden administration says he will not be meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un the way Trump did.

Finally, Mexican health officials say the country's coronavirus death toll is actually 60 percent higher than previously known or over 300,000.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s death toll from the coronavirus pandemic is likely at least 60% higher than the confirmed number, putting it in excess of 300,000, according to government data.

The higher death toll estimate was based on a word search of death certificates that mentioned “COVID-19” and other terms relating to the pandemic, the ministry said.

Total excess deaths in Mexico during the pandemic stood at 417,002 by the sixth week of 2021, according to the data.

Mexico has less than half our population, so this is pretty staggering.

Thank you again to everyone who donated last week.
