    Maybe the Tampa Bay Rays will do MLB a favor and eliminate the Sox. That way both annoying fan bases will be gone.

    save 2 kids from the icu while giving 3-17 myocarditis.


    and that's just myocarditis, you still have blood clots, strokes, seizures, neuropathic disorders, tinnitus, and on and on.

    Isn't it funny how ordinary "man on the street" types so frequently happen to not be ordinary "man on the street" types?

    A piece of good news from last night, the Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs. Making it appropriately bitter, it came at the hands of the Red Sox. Choking was NY's $324M pitcher being chased in the 3rd inning.

    A small thing, but its always good when the Yankees lose.

    In COVID news ...... Global and US new case numbers are declining along with the rest of the meaningful metrics (caveat none of them are great measures of disease impact for a number of reasons.

    Trends are useful. They are all down. The timing of the surges and declines continues an identifiable pattern: Rapid rise, followed by rapid decline in a 2-2.5 month time frame. Researchers and scientists claim they are bewildered by this and don't understand the cause. Many do know what's going on, there just isn't a consensus view. My view is that a combination of herd immunity, vaccinations and human behaviors are the three major factors involved, to what degree each contributes is anyone's guess. My take, as you'd expect, is expanding numbers of regional high vax rates is fundamentally behind the latest declines, maybe not the previous three.

    The other noteworthy thing is that variants are driving surges. The trick is to limit these on a regional and local level and we all know how to do that. It really isn't useful to look at global numbers or even country numbers becasue outbreaks are clearly regional and local. Control those and we know have a traditional epidemic like influenza. Manageable. This is what PH officials should be aiming for. Here in Europe, that's exactly what's going on. The noteable differences between us and them is higher vax rates and excellent tracing and tracking apps.

    Regarding the price of gas that seemed to get steered off course in subsequent posts: the whole point of my original post was to indicate that gas prices were to remain "high" for the foreseeable future. I sighted two lines of an article from the Economist that came from there claiming that typical plentiful oil reserves stashed by countries in the past had dwindled from 50y to 25y ...... that's still a fuckton of oil so, yeah, there's plenty of oil in absolute terms as of today but not as much as in the past. The article sighted a lot of reasons for this. I mentioned two.

    I appreciate DSLs comments on this that noted production and supply issues as contributing and also noted gas prices today are not as high as other periods in the past.

    Mentioned this morning that the FBI raided the NYPD Sergeants Union HQ this morning. Apparently they also raided the Long Island home of Ed Mullins, the union President.

    Less than 12 hours later he's resigned. But totally innocent of whatever charges may be coming!!!

    Mullins is a class act all the way:

    During his tenure, bombastic union chief has has fought for better pay for members — while also publicly sparring with city officials, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, over police reform and other issues.

    He landed in hot water last year for tweeting the unredacted arrest report of the mayor’s daughter, Chiara de Blasio after she was busted during George Floyd protests in Manhattan.

    Mullins was slapped with NYPD disciplinary charges for releasing the paperwork and for other tweets in which he called a city official and a city council member a “bitch” and a “first class whore,” respectively.
