Contra Sebby's suggestion the other day (that the virus is getting weaker as it mutates, so don't worry), here's disturbing science about the mounting risks of reinfection.

Yeah, there continue to be good reason to keep trying not to get it, even as fewer and fewer of us do so.

Wait, you're relying on science?

This is a pandemic, man, the balances you need to strike are between individual rights to just say screw it and individual's obligation to infect others and Hannity's ratings versus liberal tears. What the fuck does science have to do with medicine?

The good news is, there won't be quite as many of us drawing down social security for decades. I have to figure that shit knocked 10 years off my life.

Is your wife’s hospital still slammed?

My anecdotal feedback urgent center’s parking is pretty empty still.

You are correct. Whether it was my rabid COVID denialism, my insistence that Roe v. Wade would never be overturned, or my continuing and ever-more-absurd assertions that Trump never represented a threat to democracy, my inability to understand what was happening in American politics was matched only by my arrogant belief that I, and I alone, was able to assess these issues free of bias and rampant emotionalism. I did not simply agree to disagree with you all on these issues — I derisively mocked you for taking a contrary position. If you said Roe v. Wade would be overturned, you were not just wrong. You were a hysterical (like a woman!), hair-on-fire liberal. If you said COVID was a serious threat that needed to be aggressively addressed early on, you were a scared sheep, engaging in performative acts of virtue signaling. I called you naive fools and emotional little children, even when, again and again, my sneering certitudes turned out to be … how shall I put this … inaccurate prognostications. But I now understand that corrupt institutions not only need active evil-doers in order to succeed — almost more so, they need the deniers and the apologists. The ones who tut tut and roll their eyes at those sounding the alarms, contemptuously superior in their ridiculous but unwavering belief that they are the only ones who can see through smoke and pronounce The Truth to the masses who have let themselves become consumed by childish emotion. I now realize that I was wrong, time and time again, and that I, in fact, was the useful idiot. I am sorry.

When a lawyer emails around —Today —

About an inconvenient rule in federal practice, is it wrong to reply all:

“Read the room shithead”.

I'm naive enough to have some hope that there will be a significant electoral backlash. Maybe.

The Trump appointees wipe those ballots out. Fraud.

That's why they gutted the VRA in Shelby County first.

The ICUs are not slammed, but the numbers of employees who are testing positive has been climbing.
