Question: if COVID 19 evolves into something no more than a nuisance

Do we need to still lock down?

Hear me out -- a successful virus does not kill its host

Thus, viruses evolve until they find a way to be undetected, and keep the host alive without symptoms

So, if COVID 19 takes this route, could this be no more than an addition to flu shots in future years?

Don't get me wrong -- Omicron is real and we don't know all the short term and long term effects of it

But hospitalizations are down, and the next variant may be a "successful virus" that is, asymptomatic and non-lethal

Stinky Camenbert Cheese and Merlot

Very good pairing

Threw in a charcuterie of figs and Asian pear to round it out

Merry Fucking Christmas

Merry fucking Christmas to all of you beautiful people

Hug your fucking loved ones and mourn the fucking loved ones who aren't fucking here

Hug your furry fucking friends and give them a fucking snack from the table just fucking because (just make sure it's not fucking chocolate)

Peace on the fucking Earth, and good-fucking-will towards everyone!

With some major names departing MSNBC and CNN, why not bring back Olbermann?

Yeah, he could be a jerk, but he was our jerk

We need more fighters like him

And we need a "Worst Person in the World"

Anyone up for a "Gifts of your Region" gift exchange

Like I, being in California could gift Chardonnay in exchange for Texas BBQ or NY Deliwiches?

Anyone out there think Lara Logan might be longing for the days of Apartheid?

Maybe its a jump but she grew up, privileged, white and in Apartheid SA

I'm guessing she wants to go back to that
