On Wednesday, writing for USA TODAY, Dr. Dean Taylor, a retired Army colonel, surgeon, and West Point graduate who represents Service Academy Physicians for Biden, penned an op-ed urging his fellow service doctors to reject President Donald Trump.

“As physicians, we see extraordinary challenges,” wrote Taylor. “We share firsthand the pain of our patients’ families who mourn avoidable deaths. We treat the acutely ill and the chronic sufferers of COVID-19. We daily face mental health challenges, both our own and those of our patients, made worse by the ongoing assault on health care options for those in the greatest need. Indeed, this population bears the greatest burden of the coronavirus and has the least access to affordable health care in our country.”

“As leaders from the service academies who have served our country, we see ineffective leadership contrary to our values of integrity, honor and selfless service,” wrote Taylor. “We recognize the confusion that results from reliance on partisan opinion above impartial science and on baseless conjecture above the informed experience of health care experts.”

“We ardently encourage all of you as citizens of the United States of America to vote, and to vote for Joe Biden for the health, security and future of our entire country,” concluded Taylor.

‘Trump endangered America’s democracy’: President’s delusion broken down in brutal WaPo analysis

Published

on

President Donald Trump's refusal to accept the fact that he lost the 2020 presidential election was the focus of a Washington Post deep-dive published online Saturday night.

The story, by Philip Rucker, Ashley Parker, Josh Dawsey and Amy Gardner, was titled, "20 days of fantasy and failure: Inside Trump’s quest to overturn the election."

"The facts were indisputable: President Trump had lost. But Trump refused to see it that way," the newspaper reported. "Sequestered in the White House and brooding out of public view after his election defeat, rageful and at times delirious in a torrent of private conversations, Trump was, in the telling of one close adviser, like 'Mad King George, muttering, ‘I won. I won. I won.'’"

Female kicker makes college American football breakthrough

Published

Vanderbilt University kicker Sarah Fuller made collegiate American football history Saturday as the first woman to play in a "Power Five" contest in the Commodores' 41-0 loss to Missouri.

Fuller, goalkeeper for the school's Southeastern Conference champion women's soccer squad, was given the chance to play on the gridiron after Covid-19 testing left Vanderbilt without a kicker.

"I was really excited to step out on the field and do my thing," Fuller said.

Because Vanderbilt's offensive unit sputtered, her contribution was limited to a single play -- the second-half kickoff. She punched the ball to the Missouri 35-yard line, a tricky low offering compared to the usual deeper kicks, where the Tigers fell upon it.
