Bits & Pieces

Basically things I’ve noticed while waiting for the next hurricane update:

Ari Fleischer thinks we should give Trump some time to adjust to his loss. Yeah, like the time he gave to Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s family to sit shiva before nominating a replacement. Act like a schmuck and you get treated like a schmuck.

Among those who have tested positive for the COVID virus is my Congresscritter, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz then proclaims that he didn’t test positive for the virus, only for the antibodies. Basic knowledge, you can have the virus before you develop the antibodies, but you can’t have the antibodies if you don’t or didn’t have the virus.

Trump’s current favorite medical expert, Dr. Scott Atlas bad-mouthed government infectious disease experts on Russian state television. If you search for RT on Google, DuckDuckGo, or Wikipedia, the first return is RT (Russia Today).

As Dr. Atlas is a fan of herd immunity, maybe he should aware of multiple studies about the short lived immunity offered by catching the virus: Immunity to the coronavirus may last only a few months, UK study finds, and a separate British study shows evidence of waning immunity to Covid-19. There are already known examples of people catching the virus twice.
