Corona positive

What a wonderful week. On Sunday while helping my wife get her classroom ready for a substitute I got the chills. I figured it was just because it was so cold in the classroom, but when we got home they only got worse. And then the lethargy and back aches set in. I was already set to see my doctor on Tuesday, so she had me take a covid test while there. I got my results today, I’m positive for a corona virus. Continue reading “Corona positive”

Instapundit: BIG TECH BURNED BY BIDEN BLUNDER

Spin, strangeness, and charm

Instapundit, as you well know, has had a weekly column in the mass-circulation newspaper USA Today for many years. For the first time ever, they refused to run his column, as it addresses the Hunter Biden Emails story. So he ran it unedited on his own blog.

Covid-19, it’s not just a novel virus. It’s magically different then every other virus. It does things that no one ever thought it could do.

We have 40 years of scientific research, starting with Dr. Orr, showing us that medical masks don’t reduce infection rates. Several studies have come out in the decades since his study showing that infection rates aren’t reduced in the operating room, the hospital floor or even in the dentist’s office, by the wearing of a mask.

But this virus is different. Masks work! They keep us all safe and our infection numbers down we’re told. Which would indicate that the infection is being caught in the mask. Only, we’re told that no, the mask after having been worn is not actually a biohazard. We can simply drop it in the trash when done. I have yet to see a biohazard disposal box anywhere in public.
