6. Musk denies sexual misconduct allegation by flight attendant -

NEW YORK (AP) — Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has denied a claim of sexual misconduct by a flight attendant contracted by SpaceX who worked on his private jet in 2016.

Tennessee legislators love to bestow honors and find no shortage of excuses for doing so.

14. Court that rarely leaks does so now in biggest case in years -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court keeps secrets. Year after year, in major case after major case, there's little beyond what the justices say during oral arguments that suggests how they will rule until they actually do.

Except for the anti-vax crowd – a self-thinning Darwinian herd – it’s time for some of us to consider another COVID shot. Turns out it’s more complicated than I had hoped.

Deciding on the first shots was a no-brainer. As soon as they were authorized for my age group, Geezer II, I made arrangements and twice stood in a substantial line at a Walmart to get jabbed. Other than some surprisingly potent soreness in the receiving arm after the first shot, there were no negative repercussions. And I felt bulletproof.

31. EXPLAINER: What happens in the post-mask world of travel? -

On the deadliest day of a horrific week in April 2020, COVID took the lives of 816 people in New York City alone. Lost in the blizzard of pandemic data that's been swirling ever since is the fact that 43-year-old Fernando Morales was one of them.

NEW YORK (AP) — Small businesses still have the pandemic and now high inflation to grapple with — and they're finding it's tough to get a loan to help with the daily grind.

About 85% experienced financial difficulties in 2021, up nearly 20 percentage points from 2019.

The National Labor Relations Board on Monday began counting mail-in ballots that were sent to 6,100 workers in early February. Results could come as early as Thursday.

50. Senate makes wrong move in locking clocks -

News that the U.S. Senate had passed a bill that could establish permanent daylight saving time took me quite by surprise.

60. EXPLAINER: Who's a war criminal, and who gets to decide? -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden flatly called Russia's Vladimir Putin a "war criminal" for the unfolding onslaught in Ukraine, where hospitals and maternity wards have been bombed.

67. Freedom’s great until it doesn’t suit your agenda -

Republican lawmakers in Tennessee don’t think very highly of Democratic voters, for the same reason bank robbers don’t think very highly of cops. They interfere with business.

75. House teases, defeats bill to save cash sales -

Sometimes, a piece of Tennessee legislation seems drafted specifically to address a personal beef of mine – a Joe bill, as it were. This is gratifying since most of it appears to have been drafted to tick me off.

76. Economic dangers from Russia's invasion ripple across globe -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Moscow's war on Ukraine and the ferocious financial backlash it's unleashed are not only inflicting an economic catastrophe on President Vladimir Putin's Russia.

80. Nothing lifts the sale of a book like banning it -

If you’ve written a book, are writing a book now or are planning to write one, a word of advice: See if you can get it banned. It’s apparently good business.

85. Legislators seek to negate what Old Hickory fixed -
