About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Some are voicing the hope that the Omicron wave peaked on Dec. 23. Still too early to know for sure. London is the epicenter of the UK omicron wave.

Dr. Wachter is head of the Dept. of Medicine at UCSF. His Twitter feed has good stuff and is followed by other experts.

My informal Free Republic survey.

Just out of curiosity I perused the titles of the first four pages of most recent posts. Maybe 50 in all. There were only two that mentioned the word 'Trump'. There were three that said licorice was a cure for Covid.

Covid and the Boston sewers.

Apparently a group at MIT has developed a very accurate way of determine the spread of Covid. They can measure it by sampling at waste treatment plants. The system will anticipate the results of actual tests by a week or more and doesn't suffer the bias resulting from a self selecting group who opt for PCR tests. Here is a link to the most recent results. You can tell where things are headed:

I read an article that this new technology will have all sorts of uses: determining levels of drug use, what types of drugs. Apparently it will even be able to measure levels of stress in the community. I guess it's progress.
