Pro tip:  just because it's "non-profit" doesn't mean people don't get paid very well indeed.

See United Way.

The Irresponsible Captain: Christ, are we still calling them czars? Can't we find something that sounds a little more like it belongs in a democracy?


well, the media is anyway.  Her official title is far more boring.


To understand the media, realize the only people paying for this shiat are old white people who like to feel outraged.  We do live in an age of fake news, it's just far more insidious and subtle than the dimwits actually paying for the shiat realize.

It doesn't even make the slightest bit of sense. A real-by-god czar was an autocrat; a vaccine diplomacy czar is middle management. I guess Vaccine Diplomacy Intermediary With Limited Actual Power just isn't as catchy.

Oh, this isn't even news. Her appointment was always meant to be temporary, and she returned to her original post with the nonprofit. Snore.

I think I would like to a Czar some day. Perhaps of some city ending in "Angeles".

Would you prefer Comrade instead?

Or perhaps even Chairman?
