Minorities on course to win the Darwin awards

While the plural of anecdote is not data, two episodes this week have me very depressed about the spread of the pandemic virus in the minority community (particularly in Blacks). The first occurred with a very intelligent Black woman who worked in tech support at Comcast and helped us when our internet connection went down. You do not get a job like that unless you’re smart. She’s heard a lot about vaccine side effects and isn’t going to get it. The next was a National Guard woman working for AAA, who won’t get the vaccine unless its a military requirement.

At 3 visits to our vaccination site in a town 45% of the population is Puerto Rican we saw nary a one (except for the guy disinfecting the chairs). I talked to one of the nurses, who said that our experience is typical of what she sees day after day.

One way to make a dent in this, is force hospitals when reporting COVID19 deaths, to state whether the patient was vaccinated or not. Granted most COVID19 will not be vaccinated at out current levels of vaccination, but as this doesn’t change with increasing vaccination levels, perhaps they will be convinced (but unfortunately after a lot of unnecessary deaths.

This is not written with the old WordPress Editor, but with the new one which I hate. It doesn’t seem to let you put in tabs.

You now have to pay up to get Premium edition to install the classic editor. Although initially angered, I’ve been using it for a decade absolutely free, and it’s time to pay up
