Are you outside Tennessee struggling to get vaccine also?

I have age 70+ friends and acquaintances who have to enlist relatives to look up websites of all the pharmacies and all the county health boards daily to see if they can get a vaccine appointment. And there's a signup system, county by county, that seems to drop one's subscription daily.

Are the rest of you having problems getting vaccines? Myself, I'm too young so enduring until April anyway. It just feels so bad that people who need it cannot get vaccinated, so I wanted to check with y'all to see if it's just a Tennessee self-determining pride thing to distribute vaccine this way. Thanks for your insights.

(on edit, I replaced the hyperbole " create phone banks of their relatives to call " for accuracy)

Just a question. Given what has happened this month (and the last four years) ... will there be harsher focus on the VP choices?

Pence perhaps was not capable of seeking a 25th amendment, temperamentally and yes, the groveling. And I am certain that VP Harris will act accordingly should it become time to take away the car keys.

What of the future? Will the VP selection become a hotter issue for party officials than in the past? Or the opposite, where a party prefers someone less likely to execute a 25th action?

Wednesday can't come fast enough -- how will you celebrate?

Thinking I ought to buy some bubbly. Being in TN, I'm not with the majority so there should be supply aplenty.

Marsha OK with Biden & Harris now?

Good news. Looks like Blackburn seems to be OK with the new Prez/VP. I just got the Blackburn Report email (January 16, 2021)
