    Re: Covid-19 Part XII

    Here's a short commentary that gets right to the point:

    Yesterday afternoon, the CDC saw fit to announce formally what people of sound mind have known for months: that Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not gain anything by slinging pieces of dirty cloth across their faces...

    The CDC’s affirmation was met with celebrations from the journalistic class and the White House, and with laughter from everyone else. In New York City and Washington D.C., the news may well have felt like a liberation. In the places where the CDC has long lost its influence – namely, most of the United States of America — it felt like a bad joke. After months of incoherence, the federal government had finally arrived at where Florida, Texas, and others had been by March.
    This applies to many RZers and Rachel Maddow:

    The novelist Walter Kirn noted this transformation as pithily as usual. “As the masks go away,” he wrote, “a lot of Americans are going to miss the ability to classify, shame, and despise one another at first sight.”
    Bottom line is this:

    In contemporary America, there is apparently only one thing worse than being unable to tell which are the good guys and which are the monsters, and that is being accused of being pro-monster oneself. Unfortunately for those who fear such denunciations, there’s no vaccine against that.

    Yep, there's no vaccine for that...

    my man, you've posted the same message every day for about the last three months. It's like the guy who insists he's over the breakup but can't stop talking about his ex.

    This ex is still pertinent in our lives although I think this week is a turning point

    I see. She still reaches out to "check in" but really she just wants to keep you at arm's length? Been there.

    Best thing seems to be to listen to the experts, keep your distance, get your vax, cut off communication and she'll eventually stop bothering us.

    The experts have been telling us for 2 months that the vax is great and we don't need our masks after getting vaccinated. Then there's Fauci...

    That's what I've been saying about Wichita for weeks. Almost months now. The pandemic is over here whether it's over or not. Luckily the numbers have stayed low on cases and all despite that and the declining rate of vaccination. I think we've been very fortunate.

    So far.
