    What matters? Well, New York City for one. We get to that topic towards the end of this show, but prior to that we visit first with economist Kevin Warsh of the Hoover Institution.

I am a physician, all be it, I have not practiced in a few years. I offered my services to the local medical school who were rounding up volunteers to help with testing and other aspects of Covid. After a day of training, we volunteers were told that we could not help with testing because of the fear of legal
