Subject: RE: BS: Check in Mudcatters world wide
We're twiddling our thumbs, waiting for the Trump administration to be a thing of the past and hoping the vaccinations step up. I applied, but told the truth and didn't claim an underlying condition (I did have cancer, once, but surgery cured it over 20 years ago, so it didn't seem fair to claim it now). I think that means I'm waiting. I see friends on Facebook talking about getting their appointments and vaccinations (but they do have underlying conditions) and I'm sticking closer to home.

The current educated guess is that in the next three weeks 90,000 people in the U.S. will die. This is a result of assholes not wearing masks and going out when they shouldn't and passing COVID-19 on to people who can't fight it off. I read an article in the L.A. Times about younger people having video conversations with older relatives dying in the ICU, apologizing for bringing COVID-19 home when they got together over the holidays. Heartbreaking all around.

I picked up dog food via curbside pickup this afternoon to avoid going in the store; the woman who carried it out to the car wasn't wearing a mask, didn't even have one hanging around her neck. She should be reprimanded and if she doesn't shape up, fired.
