    Let’s hope that domestic violence decreases as vaccines are available and take effect.

    I firmly anticipate that the vaccine will in fact bring back hugging among folks who are exo-pod to each other. And in fact, reduce the use of the concept “pod”. I’ll be using my mask when shopping, though, up through probably July or August.

    A large dose of sanity would help.

    I am a member of a small church whose congregation on Sunday is usually 25 elderly women and me. We meet in a garage of a converted house.

    Our services are very informal and when it comes to the Peace, it takes a while since everyone has to hug everyone else.

    I do miss that.

    Meanwhile a lawsuit has been filed in Nevada to allow the legal brothrels to reopen. But I doubt Mr. Stahler was thinking of that.

    Eventually, yes. Small consolation to the 260,000 families that weren’t able to hug a loved one, or hold their hand as they passed, or even be in the same room with them. I’m sure they take comfort by knowing their loss will boost the economy and the virus was just a hoax to make DJT look bad. /s

    We didn’t have a Thanksgiving Dinner, which worked out well for my son, since he is an RN who has worked five twelve hour shifts this week on the covid ward of his hospital. He hasn’t seen any family members or friends who are not also hospital workers since February. I was afraid when he had only a few patients with it and he was young and in good shape. How much longer before he is exhausted by his work, emotionally exhausted by watching them die, and more vulnerable to the sky rocketing number of patients?Those healthy young people who believe that the Trump plague is no match for their immune system need to remember several things.

    1. You are infecting people when you have no symptoms at all. This includes your family and people who actually matter to other people even if they don’t to you.

    2. When you overestimate your immune system, or underestimate the plague, you wind up competing for a respirator and other materials needed by those who developed the disease because they were essential workers.

    3. Many viruses remain within the cells of your body. We don’t know that this is one of them, but it’s not unlikely. They wait there until your body’s immune system is no longer strong enough to keep them in check. That could happen when you are older, or in the car wreck you have next week. Then, with their new assistance, they come back in full force.

    4.. You are endangering the medical workers who have to care for you and the people that you infect. They are already risking their lives. What right have you to add to their jeopardy because you need a haircut?
