Pfizer. I'm fine just can't really see patient with your teeth chattering.
Thanks for what you are doing. We need to appreciate folks like you on the front line. I'm hoping for a brighter future than our past 11 months. Looking forward to a new and more positive chapter in American life hopefully starting very soon.

Stupid about AGW!!
NY seems to have a particular disdain for those who are living in Elder Care.

First the Gov shipping people with COVID back to eldercare facilities and now ~1/3 of workers in those facilities now refusing to get the vaccine

From other articles I've seen on the topic, that's unfortunately not that high. I'll see if I can track down the articles on it, but the denial rate in the Rio Grande Valley (Edinburg and nearby towns) and El Paso was something like 40 or 50%. Unfortunately, those are also places that were slammed by COVID a few months ago.

Wishing I was in Stillwater
My brother has gotten his hospital bill from his wife's hospitalization. He has good insurance, so this isn't what he's going to have to pay, but his total hospital bill is over $800k. That doesn't include things like physician bills, radiology, etc. Her total expenditure could be well over $1 million. And she died.

For those of you who are "the cure can't be worse than the disease", how many $1 million hospital bill could we afford before the economy collapses?
