The idea that continuing to wear a mask after being vaccinated is morally equivalent to refusing to wear a mask or get vaccinated is amplified by idiots in the media who question Biden and Harris wearing masks even though they serve as examples that wearing masks is safe.
There is no equivalence. One action is an abundance of caution while the other is feckless disregard for the health and safety of the community. One does no harm, the other has killed half a million people.

So media, stop being such absolute assholes.
Moreover, the experience of mask-wearing has shown its efficacy in preventing more than the coronavirus. It also has reduced the incidence of cold and flu. I can see people being seasonal mask wearers, safely coming through cold and flu season.
I can imagine a huge decrease in the need for cough syrup, sore throat lozenges, and all the other OTC cold/flu medicines.

I am reading this book & a new character was just added in a new storyline. She's going to a Resistance meeting with a secret answer to enter. She is asked if something were heading toward earth that would kill everyone,
but you could save one of two people, Stacey Dash or Ben Carson. She picks Ben because doctor and is told she is wrong. The correct answer is neither because it would be better to just start over (paraphrasing).
Unfortunately, I had just taken a sip of coffee and now my nose is killing me.

My cat is so weird. For example, she was looking to the east out the window, sitting in the typical cat pose. I said her name, so she decided to turn around to face me, but not by moving. No, she used her claws to drag herself from facing east to facing west while keeping pose
To drag herself around takes a lot more time and effort than just moving, but she does it a lot. Now she is doing circuits. Looking out the east side of the window. then to the west, then across my leg, through the kitchen from w>e and back to the east side of window.
She does those circuits dozens of times a day, sometimes at high speed, so dragging herself in a circle is not because she's lazy. And there she goes in another circuit. There is nothing out there or she would be circling faster.

So my best friend and I watched #Tenet last night for the last day of the Watchathon where the expensive channels were free. It was so good. I don't much care for movies. I get bored about 2/3rds and want them to be OVER, but not this one. Not one second of boredom
It was mind-bending and you kind of just have to let go and let be - just sit back and watch and laugh because it is sometimes hilarious when you realize something has happened. I would hate to be asked to storyboard or flow chart this movie.
There were some great lines. For example, The Protagonist says to the Michael Caine character about them "having a monopoly on snobbery" and he says no, they don't, but "we have a controlling interest."

I laughed so hard.

One thing the Republicans have that Democrats do not is message discipline. No matter the issue, their explanation is that government regulation is at fault. Their solution is always limiting government, cutting taxes, funding, programs.
Democrats on the other hand have multiple explanations and differing solutions. All over the place. This is bad marketing but good government. Not all problems are the same.
OTOH, both Sanders and Warren have message discipline. It's all corruption, big money buying legislation, the solution is campaign finance reform. It's really simple. This fit-on-a-bumper-sticker program is it. Good messaging, bad governance

We know so much more about Catholic sexual abuse but very little about Baptists. I wonder if that is due to the congregational structure of the protestant churches. There is no massive superstructure of bishops, cardinals, etc.
That means a small Baptist Church in a rural town of 100 people with maybe 25 members has maybe $800 in the bank with no structure above it to sue if there is abuse. No one to cover up but the parishioners - who would to avoid embarrassment
Not that the church my parents attended had a predator priest, but even if they did, there would be no hook for the media who like reporting on multi-million suits - large, organized conspiracies, not isolated incidents
