The Evangelical Election Meltdown

Seth offers us several silly, outrageous, ridiculous, disgusting examples of some evangelicals' reaction to Trump's loss. No wonder his crowds look and sound so vulgarly. There is no use in trying to reason with such hysteria.Continue

Canada Approves Moderna / NIH vaccine

The Good professor says he has heard that 115ml people are travelling over Xmas "can this be true? Can a sophisticated nation like the United States embark on this suicidal path? It appears so" (It beggers credulity)

It looks like Canada might be the first country to achieve herd immunity after the full roll-out of the vaccine across the nation.

Randy, clouds or fog prevented seeing the conjunction in N.E. WA State.  Thanks for remembering Carl; he would be pleased.

The sky's over England were rather overcast these last few nights. When it was clear I saw one very clear planet moving behind the moon, but I don't know what it was. It had a red hue to it.

Carl would have enjoyed seeing Jupiter and Saturn in conjunction. Last night's view was spectacular!

It is great news, but the conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers are coming out of the woodwork. Unless we get a High percentage of people taking the vaccine it will be all for nought.

Thankfully we live in a free country and we can't force people to take the vaccine, but what will happen I suspect is anyone who doesn't the vaccine won't be able to travel into other countries for holidays or business.
