Texas has figured it out - bars are closed because they are susceptible to Covid, but if they serve food everything is safe.

Abbot’s mandates are hypocritical as all hell.

He's really got something personal against bars. It just has to be. Otherwise, how could parking a food truck outside make it okay?

Full disclosure - I went to high school with him (Duncanville). He was a dork even then LOL

That’s moreso on TABC allowing the external food source exception.

I get churches and libraries, but there are enough patio bars in Texas where the hypocrisy is in plain sight.

First case was due to undiagnosed MS, still awaiting second case results. So this is what these studies and testing is for. Now we wait and see... and if it’s so, we move on.

A good example of why many vaccine developers have stated they want to put any vaccine through full and proper testing before anything is released.

While MS turned out to be a factor here, it takes time to determine and assess side effects. What if it wasn't MS and this vaccine was rushed?

The current situation with COVID is frustrating, but the notion of a "quick fix" this year is unlikely.

I just...I can't even with people. 🤦‍♀️
If there's a mask mandate inside businesses, they're clearly breaking a "law". Fine every single one of them with a warning for steeper punishment in the future for knowingly putting people at risk and encouraging others to do the same.

Harsh...maybe. But I'm just sick of this crap.

Maybe companies can just start issuing lifetime bans? Maybe they could share information like casinos do? That might start to dissuade people from exhibiting potentially dangerous antisocial behavior.

I just think it’s important to remember this is what the testing and trials is meant to do. I just don’t want people feeling discouraged when all factors are still unknown. And there are many others in trials. Let’s just wait and see the results.

I had a long dinner party last night with 8 people in attendance including me; youngest guest was in their 50's, oldest was early 70's. All of us live in Southern California. Covid was obviously a topic of conversation at several points in the evening. (And no, none of us wore masks. How silly would that look at a dinner party?!)

The general consensus among us, and I'm firmly in this camp, is that we won't rush down to get the vaccine when it becomes available. But not because we don't trust it, we just don't want to be part of some panic to get the shot and end up on the local news as an "official older person" in line at Walgreens. 🤣

I can take it or leave it, myself. I have spoken with my doctor about Covid, and I know my own health history and understand the risks of getting Covid just as I understand the risks of getting the flu or pneumonia. I often get a flu shot every fall (some years I forget), and I have received both doses of the two pneumonia vaccines one year apart.

But Covid vaccine? Eh, I'll wait until all the media frenzy dies down and all the panicky people have gotten theirs.

On behalf of all of us panicky people, thank you!
