In other unrelated news, my husband got a call from his mother 20 or so minutes ago, and the b*tch can yak yak yak. I've plugged in my headphones and am happily listening to my Pandora station. Heaven knows when he'll hang up...
Get it if you can...one of my professor colleagues said last night that it's likely the MRNA-based vaccines are going to run out by the time they get down the priority list to regular people, and the ones coming later appear to have a substantially lower efficacy rate.

Heard the same statistic for the percent who need to be vaccinated to develop herd immunity, on PBS Newshour. In lieu of a law requiring vaccination, I think we'll see more restrictions that produce a similar result. Like, if you want to participate, go to a certain school, go on a cruise, etc., you'll need to be vaccinated or provide a medical waiver.

Talking

Last night I saw three kites, with tails, lit up on the side of a house as part of someones holiday decorations.

I have also seen two instances of a decorative unicorn with a twinkling horn.

No pandas, but I did see a black&white skunk decoration wearing a santa hat.

And the year-around anchor fixed to the side of a local home (which I have previously mentioned on GC) once again sports a holiday wreath.

Your post makes a lot of sense. I can see that happening.

They’re talking about it on CNN right now. According to CNN, it spreads 70% faster but doesn’t make people sicker, from what they know, so far.

Are you getting the vaccine?

Skimming the Impeachment Debate.

Please.

Just use the DITTO, and be done with the "For My Political Ads In Two Years to Convince Home Folks I Did The Right Thing" words.

THANK YOU.
