The Rodeo

Psst. I’ll let you in on a secret. I have a pet peeve. I’m not a man of many, tell the truth. I’m not usually bothered by the trivialities of other people’s behavior and idiosyncrasies. I haven’t always been like this, but I’ve evolved a lot over the years. At 56, the behavior of people…

What about cultural responsibility for COVID-19 infection?

I’ve often said that COVID-19’s greatest danger is that it is not deadly or dramatic enough of a pestilence to create an immediate sense of danger or impending doom on the individual level. The kill rate is low and the affliction is not horrendously dramatic. I understand that suffocating to death in your own…

Is there an underground bidding war for the COVID-19 vaccine?

It’s not horribly surprising that well-endowed people with bloated bank accounts are throwing some of that loot around, is it? Los Angeles’ super-rich are offering medical clinics as much as $25,000 for priority access to coronavirus vaccines, the Los Angeles Times reported. On December 11, a drug created by Pfizer and BioNTech became the first…

Alex, for three cents, what are “things I don’t give a shit to know?”

He may be dead, but his spirit lives on. I want my money now.   Former President Obama shared that his family’s quarantine included an extra guest during the beginning of the pandemic. On a recent episode of “The Bill Simmons Podcast,” Obama revealed to Simmons and CNN political analyst Bakari Sellers that Malia Obama’s…

National leaders confront their White Whale

So now it’s Emmanuel’s turn.   French President Emmanuel Macron has gone on a retreat to Versailles as he rides out his coronavirus diagnosis. He is quarantining at the presidential residence of La Lanterne within the city of Versailles and is being closely guarded by police. Officials with the presidency have not provided any details…

The Incredible Fainting Nurse of Chattanooga won’t be catching the COV, at least

Man, just not the type of PR that Pfizer is looking for now. The nurse got vaccinated and then sorta…passed out on camera. In all honesty, as amusing and damning as this might seem, I don’t think it had anything to do with the vaccine. I think she was just overwhelmed with emotion and excitement.…

Lin Wood is a used-hope salesman

This is the kind of unsubstantiated bullshit that culls the idiotic blind-believing, trust-the-plan sheep that clutter the political arena, I suppose. In discussing @realDonaldTrump in phone conversation in 8/19, Justice John Roberts stated that he would make sure “the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected.” Roberts engaged in phone conversations with Justice Stephen Breyer discussing…

Will Trump’s Presidential library have a porn section? Life in the post-Trump world.

This guy! Drama and conflict will follow him long after he’s been scuttled away from the White House in January. Don’t believe for a second we will never be subjected to his theatrics or hyperbole ever again or that he will experience of wave of eerie post-Presidential love. (WashPo link paywalled, fyi)   Next-door neighbors…
