    • Ka Ching!
      Here come da Judge

      A Florida judge on Wednesday ruled against Gov. Ron DeSantis’s administration for a second time over school mask mandates, allowing school boards to require that students wear face coverings.

      Gov. Greg Abbott (R) in May barred Texas school districts and other governmental entities from requiring masks, saying it should be a matter of personal choice. But as this school year began, with the highly contagious delta variant bearing down, several big-city school districts defied him. Then a court put his order on hold.


      LACY LAKEVIEW, Tex. — When classes began a couple of weeks ago, before the first and then the second teacher at Connally Junior High School died of covid-19, only a scattering of students wore masks. On Tuesday morning, every face emerging from the line of yellow school buses was covered.

      Masks are now mandatory for students and staff in the Connally Independent School District, on the outskirts of Waco. The decision, made late last week, followed the two teacher deaths and a surge of cases in the community.

            Is it understood that this issue comes down to money and probably not in the way most people think?

                  It's called "Confirmation bias." You start with a whacko theory and you ignore any evidence to the contrary and tout all the fake evidence that coincides with the whacko theory.

                  • It's a bad time to get sick in Oregon. That's what many doctors are telling their patients and the public as hospitals full of COVID-19 patients have been forced to postpone some treatments of other medical conditions.

                    "I've seen patients get ready to have their open-heart surgery that day. I've seen patients [who] have brain tumor with visual changes, or someone with lung cancer, and their procedures are canceled that day and they have to come back another day," says Dr. Kent Dauterman, a cardiologist and co-director of the regional cardiac center in Medford, Ore. "You always hope they come back."

                    In early September, according to Dauterman, the local hospital had 28 patients who were waiting for open heart surgery, 24 who needed pacemakers, and 22 who were awaiting lung surgeries. He says during normal times, there is no wait.

                    "I don't want to be dramatic, it's just there's plenty of other things killing Oregonians before this," Dauterman says.

                    "If you look at the number of hospital beds per capita, Oregon has 1.7 hospital beds per thousand population. That's the lowest in the country," says Becky Hultberg, CEO of the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.

                          • I thought "anti-maskers" wanted freedom. I guess that does not include other people's freedom to wear masks.

                              Stupid on the owner's part, but a family with an immunocompromised child shouldn't be in a restaurant anyway.
