And considering that ďhaving itĒ apparently gives at least the same amount of protection, that we get to ditch the mask as well.

On the bright side, masks are ending the Millennial Mumbling problem in the service industry.


Gotta' sound off like you have a pair to be heard through the face diaper.

As a crotchety oldster who's gone on way too many walkarounds without hearing protection (then huddled under the APU for warmth), I can appreciate a loud waiter/waitress/server/WTF-do-we-call-these-people(?), I kind of like it.

please expand on what you are talking about. In what way are we tripping into an Orwellian event? How are masks being used in a negative way?

Default 30 Million Americans Vaccinated In 25 Days

No official update from the CDC but Bloomberg puts it at another 2.1 million over the last 2 days.

I guess it will be pretty easy for Biden to make his 100 million in 100 days. All he has to do is sit on his hands and let the plan continue to roll out.

My comment was to the "back to normal lives" portion of the post, not masks per se.

How much longer will the governors of states continue to execute their "emergency" powers? As an example, my state senator and assemblyman -- our elected representatives -- have zero input into the executive decrees dictating which businesses can operate, how they may operate, and at what capacity. It sure makes "governing" easy; the whole messiness of law making just kind of goes away.

To whom do citizens address grievances? Most lawmakers in my state do not even find out about new penalties, fines, or directives until after the media reports what his royal highness and his high court have decided what is best for us. I guess maybe after the W.H.O. declares the pandemic officially over. Maybe? But what about COVID-21 or COVID-22, or the new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that, of course, requires extension of emergency powers?

These are rhetorical in nature, but Rahm Emmanuel's quote seemed to sum it up succinctly.

Rant over.

I read somewhere the actual goal is more like 2 million plus a day. Seems realistic seeing how man power and logistics are still ramping up...

The above perception is driven by the press saying people vaccinated can still spread it. They omit that they mean people who were exposed to covid just before or after getting the vaccine.
The vax is to lesson the effect. Has nothing to do with the contagion R value.
