Crazy Times Scrapbook, February 2021

Good news; the coronavirus numbers continued to go down...

I wasn't one of the Massachusetts residents who crashed the state's website. I don't want a vaccine, so I get to avoid the hassle over getting one.

"Real unity would be welcome in these hyper-political times, when friendships can shatter over patronizing an unwoke fast-food joint or mouthing a renegade opinion regarding masks."

Go Trump! I miss him.

I concur with both of these opinions.

The winter storm in Texas was a tragic debacle that also showed how unreliable green energy methods on their own can be.
"...they have been taking nuclear and coal plants offline to please the lords of climate change. But the public pays the price when blackouts occur because climate obeisance has made the grid too fragile."

I hope he's right!

Not to downplay the tragic toll Covid has taken on many people and families, but all this continued hysteria over a virus with a population fatality rate of ~0.15% and an infection fatality rate of ~0.23%? Really?

"...the consistent and rapid decline in daily cases since Jan. 8 can be explained only by natural immunity." 
I think a lot more people have had Covid without knowing it than we realize. I suspect that I might be one of them because of an awful, lingering sickness I had in November/December 2019 that affected my breathing. Even though it's no fun being sick, I'll take natural immunity over a questionable vaccine any day. 

2% positivity rate in Massachusetts 

The toll certainly is tragic.

Back to school full-time in April! It's about time! 🎉

The positivity rate was down to 1.9% by the end of the month.

Today, on March 23rd, it's up to 2% again. Go back down, you, and stay there!
