Jabbing the 1%

 Wondering why millions and millions of Red State voters detested the Blue State elite? Here's a clue from the Dow Jones Newswires:

These are the loopholes America's 1% can use to get early access to the COVID-19 vaccine

Actually, the "loopholes" sound too cramped to accommodate the whole 1%. Maybe the 0.1%.

I am volunteering to be at the end of the line for this vaccination. I'm surprised so many people seem so anxious to get it early.

I mean, if it meant you could stop wearing the masks in public, that would be one thing, but that is never going to happen.

It's the nursing=home, assisted-living folks who need to be near the head of the line. Horrible how the virus can sweep through such facilities, with deadly results.

yes, there's a terrible story in the Star Tribune about a facility in Minneapolis.

certainly the staff at such facilities should be at the head of the line. i'm worried that the elderly residents (my parents) are more likely to have adverse reactions to the vaccinations. i would go slow with them.

my parents moved to a retirement co-op a couple years back, and dad has now been moved into the nursing facility. he can't have visitors there, except my brother is a designated caregiver. visitation is limited for mom also, but she is free to come and go, to meet with family outside the facility.

i'm getting really tired of the mask nazis.
