Another Eclectic Hire

Readers may recall the rather non-traditional individual appointed by President Biden to handle America’s nuclear waste, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Energy Department’s Office of Nuclear Energy, Sam Brinton.

Secretary Brinton now has a similarly eclectic colleague in the Administration, White House Monkeypox Coordinator Demetre Daskalakis.

Daskalakis Gets An Interesting Defender

One pundit who stepped in to defend the Daskalakis hire was Andrew Sullivan.

What makes Andrew Sullivan an interesting defender of our Monkeypox coordinator is that he was an early and effective advocate for legalizing gay marriage, and one of his arguments for doing so was that it would have a public health benefit, in reducing an epidemic. He seemed to have forgotten that argument earlier this week, but was reminded of it on Twitter.

As Steve Sailer and others have pointed out, it wasn’t so much gay marriage but the fear of AIDS that tempered gay promiscuity, and that fear was lessened with government funding of PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis).

Better Living Through Chemistry

Since our leaders are repeating their AIDS tack of not trying to rein in the irresponsible individuals spreading this disease, we’re left with America’s preferred response: pharmaceuticals. On that score, I shared a Monkeypox play with you in a post a couple of months ago.

That play was SIGA Technologies, Inc. (SIGA):

SIGA appeared in our top ten again on Wednesday, but didn’t pass our options sentiment screens on Thursday. It might be worth keeping an eye on our top names to see if it appears there again soon with more staying power.
