Mark,

As you are already in Nevada I wanted to ask if you have ever been to the Utah parks.
Yes, I've been through all of those parks. Just beautiful. Never hurts to see / hike them again, though.

I have to admit, that's pretty good. O0
I lold.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

It begins...

https://nypost.com/2020/12/04/san-franc ... -lockdown/

San Francisco just announced a total lockdown, more severe than what we had in NYC back in the spring.

Goodbye to Calfornia's economy. I expect very few small businesses will make it through this.

And, too bad they didn't catch WHO's report, based on multiple medical journal articles, about the ineffectiveness of lockdowns.

I doubt that would have mattered.
They are mad with power and don't give a crap about the people suffering under their tyranny.

Well, they're effective at getting everyone to shop at Amazon. And if anyone's mad about that, they can have a Zoom protest.

This seems to be an apt quote to put in this topic...

word, they have simply been made up. And that, ladies

Orwell talked about the "Ministry of Truth" in 1984 but I think he got the title wrong. It will be the "Ministry of Science". They will tell us what the science says. The administrator will occupy a cabinet position and thus need to be confirmed by the senate so we can all agree that they are trustworthy. Doodle will probably like it.

I've got a question. We are 10 months into this pandemic and we are still arguing over the effectiveness of wearing a mask. There appears to be an issue of personal rights, efficacy of the mask, as well as the subject has obviously been politicized.

Do we have any high quality studies on the efficacy of the different types of face coverings? I'm speaking of published scientific studies showing what type of mask(s) filter the virus particle, both for receiving and transmitting.

This kind of data just might prove effective in addressing this volatile issue, and minimize "opinions" from Fauci, Trump, Biden, et al.

Also, it seems medical academia would be looking closer at monitoring antibodies in previous Covid patients. There are estimates, all over the place, as to how long a person is immune after the infection. Isn't this really important to know going forward?

Seems like science is just politics with more data.
