Covid is facing a resurgence in the US, and so is Trumpian politics Robert Reich

Despair is worse after hope is briefly ignited. I donít know about you, but I was elated earlier this spring when it seemed as if Trump and Covid were gone, and Biden seemed surprisingly able and willing to get the nation rapidly back on track.

'Dating Game' serial killer Rodney Alcala dies on death row

Rodney Alcala, a convicted serial killer who was on California's death row, has died, authorities said Saturday.

Alcala, 77, died of natural causes at 1:43 a.m. Saturday at a hospital in the community near Corcoran State Prison, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a statement.

After representing himself in Orange County court, he was sentenced to death in 2010 for the 1979 murder of 12-year-old Robin Samsoe and the murders of four other women - 18-year-old Jill Barcomb and 27-year-old Georgia Wixted, both in 1977; 32-year-old Charlotte Lamb in 1978; and 21-year-old Jill Parenteau in 1979.

Alcala's execution in California had been postponed indefinitely due to a moratorium on the death penalty instituted by the state in 2019.

Rant on Doing Social Distancing and Being Fully Vaccinated

I feel that right now is heading like the bad old days of last year, with me moving towards self-imposed social distancing again. There is one AA meeting that I have to attend in person, but I want that group to reimpose their mask mandate because the case spike is out of control.

All of the college students are coming back, making the area where I live into a COVID hotspot. I am fully vaccinated and very healthy, but I don't take any chances with the virus. Even though I might not even feel COVID, it could use me to spread the virus even more, and somebody will die because I didn't take proper social distancing measures.

At this point, I don't fear the virus and getting sick. What I fear is spreading to other people more than what happens to me, so I feel that I need to reimpose voluntary social distancing measures again.

What the government does is not my responsibility. I am only responsible for my behavior. If I got my way, all of the old school restrictions from California's tier system would come back until past January. That means cases level out, and the virus does not become an out-of-control killer.

But the people don't want my draconian ways, and I am powerless over people, places, and things. So I do my part and leave everybody else alone unless you think I should complain to Gavin Newsom to reimpose the tier system.
