What’s the executive summary?

More than a few health policy experts were screaming at the government to do something in January/February and nothing. Also he talks about Bush's (Bush 43) plans to prepare for a pandemic post 9/11.

His interviews on both Ezra Klein and Talking Politics are great overviews (some repetition, some differences with different interviewers). What I took was that … the problems that caused our embarrassingly disastrous response are much wider ranging. For example, the CDC went from career leaders to political leaders under Carter and Reagan – you can listen/read for the full story, which is too long for here – and atrophied from an agency capable of leading the nation through a health crisis to one that could only do academic style research. Lots of other angles. Sounds like a great book.

Another reason to get vaccinated: the vaccines do not appear to work as well in immunocompromised people:

Early research shows that 15 to 80 percent of people with certain medical conditions, such as specific blood cancers or organ transplants, are generating few antibodies after coronavirus vaccines.

Michael Lewis did the best book for laymen on the 2008 financial crisis. He does a really good job of explaining complex things simply and making them interesting. This will be a must buy and must read for me.

All this while eating these items, driving with their knees, and talking on the phone. A next door family, with 3 kids, and parents with pre-existing conditions, refuse to get the vaccine out of fear of side effects. Nicest people in the world, would do anything for most anybody, but refuse to get the vac. People have a lot of unwarranted apprehensions.

Ontario golfers, celebrate. I think the plan is for courses to open up as soon as Saturday. Tee 'em up, eh?

For the geekified amongst us:

Airborne transmission by droplets and aerosols is important for the spread of viruses. Face masks are a well-established preventive measure, but their effectiveness for mitigating SARS-CoV-2 transmission is still under debate...

So, what is everyone going to do with all of their masks when we get to the point where we don't need them every day?

Just watched a show and a character said "Maybe I could make the world's ugliest quilt, because I learned to sew during the pandemic."

I'm trying to figure out how to work them into a golf training aid, but coming up empty so far.

I can use them when I sand wood and joint compound. Some will still wear theirs during allergy season. Or we could make Xmas wreaths with them!

Golf and tennis/pickleball opened up in Ontario over the weekend, but other sports - soccer, baseball, etc... , not so much.
