    As well as stupid.

    Global Epidemic figures from yesterday say Minnesota's average new cases for last 7 days (10/19-10/25) is 2139 daily. That's 37.9 per 100K population, which places them #10 (highest). Hardly doing "quite well."

    I asked Super Granddaughter Karen what she thought about the Karen thing. Her response was a silent middle finger.

    Can we back off my family please? You guys already have been all over Karens, which is my wife's name. Now Typhoid Mary [Mallon]. My father did our family genealogy back in the 1990s before he died in 2000. Mary Mallon was my grandfather's aunt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Mallon

    FWIW, Mrs BamBam (Karen) and I got our Moderna boosters yesterday - our 3rd shot. Her arm is a little sore but otherwise OK. I actually had a little reaction to this one - none on the first two - I got really tired last night very early and had a headache, but feel fine today.
    My niece played a girl who died from typhoid in the PBS show on Typhoid Mary...very sad...and she didn't even get a screen credit! So consider yourself lucky.

    “I felt like the White House had gotten somewhat complacent through the campaign season,” said Deborah Birx, who President Donald Trump chose in March 2020 to steer his government’s virus response, according to interview excerpts released by the House select subcommittee on the pandemic.

    Birx, who sat for interviews with the subcommittee on Oct. 12 and 13, also detailed advice that she said the White House ignored late last year, including more aggressively testing younger Americans, expanding access to virus treatments and better distributing vaccine doses in long-term care facilities.

    More than 130,000 American lives could have been saved with swifter action and better coordinated public health messages after the virus’s first wave, Birx told investigators.

    “I believe if we had fully implemented the mask mandates, the reduction in indoor dining, the getting friends and family to understand the risk of gathering in private homes, and we had increased testing, that we probably could have decreased fatalities into the 30-percent-less to 40-percent-less range,” Birx said.

    I have had few to no issues conversating with people wearing masks. Well, except from those who are ardently anti-mask, and they're just childish anyway.

    After you are vaccinated, except for a tiny few, Covid is a minor inconvenience and nothing more. It is like seasonal flu which we don't treat like the plague. A friend in England, fully vaccinated, tested positive last week and has no symptoms. And the UK government has handled it like she is Typhoid Mary.

    People act like no one ever got sick before covid. The over reaction is ridiculous. If someone fully vaccinated thinks masks are stupid I agree. I don't care who they are.

    If you want to wear a mask fine...but let the rest of us vaccinated people alone.
    You miss the part where others can pass along the virus and accidentally kill someone.

    Also, saying it is a minor inconvenience is bullshit. Almost 1500 people died yesterday, which isn't a seasonal flu number.

    If you want to defend a position then defend it with facts not bullshit because a mask is inconvenient for you.

    It's O.K. he's now explained himself.

    "Having a conversation with someone with wearing a mask is not something I find productive, especially when other options exist," he wrote. "It is important for me to communicate effectively with people. I can't do that when half of my face is covered."
    Other options are getting vaccinated...I agree with him on this point.

    I see where governors like Ivey are coming from. She along a few other governors, such as Jim Justice and Asa Hutchinson, are staunchly pro-vaccine but also anti-vaccine mandates. Justice is offering cash to get West Virginians vaccinated and Ivey's blast of anti-vaxxers went viral a few months ago. Similarly, I know some staunchly anti-abortion folks who feel that it's none of the government's business if a woman decides to get an abortion.
    The 15,407 dead might not see where she's coming from now.
