It feels as if all my friends are going on vacation, meeting up, going to Hawaii.
Enjoy your Prague Summer, I say, we’re going to be locked back down when it gets cold. I don’t see any way to get the US sufficiently vaccinated. And now this Delta variant is causing new cases in half the states, so the virus is not only back on the upswing but 1,000 times more communicable. In fact, Saint Louis has already gone backward and re-instituted the indoor mask mandate.
On top of that, this week Pfizer said the shots we got last spring are losing effectiveness, after which they they said oopsies, and apologized to Dr. Fauci, and then clarified the immunosuppressed could still get a booster maybe, and thank you.
Evidently Biden wants people going door to door dispensing shots, but I don’t see that resulting in anything but door-to-door gun displays. What might work is the 1917 model: arrest anyone without a mask.
It’s sour grapes, I know, and small-minded. You people having fun, you will pay, says the shut-in. (Except for the people in New Zealand, you have fun, you made rules and followed them like rational people.)
