    I think it was Moderna where they gave them three weeks to get their paperwork ready and Moderna said it's ready we don't need three weeks and the FDA said well, it's on the schedule, so why change?

    Seriously, burn it to the ground and start over.

    So I had my first major run-in with an idiot in a grocery store who wouldn't wear a mask.

    I was in line about to pay for groceries when the clerk noticed this guy in a motorcycle outfit w/no mask doing self-checkout in the next isle over. The clerk tells the guy he needs to wear a mask if he's in the store and offered to get him one if he didn't have one. The guy gets all pissy saying "you don't know what you're talking about, you have no jurisdiction over me, it's all about control, blah blah blah." He starts loudly arguing with the clerk who seems like he immediately regrets saying anything at all. I pop off telling the guy to stop being an asshole which set him off and he comes around and tells me to mind my own business and proceeds to throw his helmet at me which missed and went flying down the isle. I'm saying "take your shot" and at that point 3 other clerks surround the guy trying to get him out of the store and it just gets more and more chaotic. Knowing cops are going to show up at any minute, I decide it wasn't worth it and walked out.

    I just don't get people these days.

    You are right, some people just don’t get it. Most places you need to wear some type of footwear to enter as well. I would rather wear the mask than be in a hospital on a vent.

    I get it. I try not to get involved anymore, because you never know, the guy could be waiting for you in the parking lot, following you home and pulling out a gun on you.

    Yikes. I'm sure the clerk actually appreciated you saying something.

    Guaranteed the dude doesn't put away his shopping cart, he just leaves it next to where his car was parked.

    It's a lock.

    Had a guy go off on me for telling him he needed to wear one as the sign on the door said and it immediately turned into me being a democrat who hates black people. I was waiting on the dude to go all Mel Gibson on me but he didnít.

    So Dr.’s are recommending women get a mammogram prior to getting the vaccine, due to swollen lymph nodes in the breast that mimic Breast Cancer...a mammogram after the vaccine may result in a false positive for Breast Cancer requiring a biopsy for verifications.

    Some encouraging vaccine numbers are rolling in. The US has 24 million people that have completed both doses which is way more than anyone else in the world--by a lot. Still a long way to go, but that means we're closing in on roughly 10% of the population being completely vaccinated, and those 10% would include the people that are both the most susceptible to infection (aging population, people with pre-existing conditions) as well as the people most likely to get infected and spread it (front line workers). Meanwhile, we're seeing a steady decline in positive cases here in Missouri. We're down to levels we haven't seen since last summer.

    Pfizer #2 tomorrow. We had a family gathering last Friday night with 4 vaccinated households, except for kids. Was kind of nice to do again.

    I'm taking my parents, who are both in their upper 70s to an appointment on Thursday to get vaccinated. I'm very excited as they have ben more or less shut-ins since last Spring.

    Actually, I doubt it as my comment made the guy go ballistic. He struck me as someone who was probably looking for attention if not a confrontation which of course he got. After I left, I was second-guessing myself and regretted opening my piehole. On the other hand, I'm the kind of guy that has a really hard time looking the other way when someone is patently being a giga-douche even if it's not directly my business.
