8) Texas Republican Van Taylor has suspended his campaign after admitting he had an affair with “ISIS bride” Tania Joya, allowing runner-up Keith Self to run for the seat. (He was facing a runoff anyway and had paid Joya $5,000 to shut up).
-The Trump Curse strikes again, however: Taylor was one of 35 Republicans to vote for the hoax January 6 (Patriot Day) commission.
9) Katie Meyer, a Stanford Soccer player, has been found dead on campus with "no evidence" of the cause. (Is this the disease that dare not speak its name, vax side effects?

21) . . . while Ukrainian special forces have boasted about their intent to kill any Russian trying to surrender “like pigs.”
