    Lot of travelers to and from Minnesota.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    • Michael Osterholm just was on MSNBC and helped explain the issues with getting the vaccine in arms. Says he thinks in the next 2-4 weeks that the issues should be resolved. Basically since Operation Warp Speed did nothing to set up the infrastructure for how the vaccine would be delivered it was never going to work. Mentioned how Minnesota's issue was it set aside too much for the long term care facilities originally and now is shifting all of that to the 65+ crowd.

      Then when asked if he thinks the current plateau is a sign of things getting better he flat out said no that it is going to get worse especially because of the new variants.

      Meanwhile it sounds like early next week Johnson and Johnson should release their Phase 3 numbers for their one shot vaccine.

        This is exactly where the concept of "personal responsibility" breaks down. The inaction of the prior administration pushed the decision down into the hands of individual business owners: do I shut down at great personal economic cost to me and my employees, or do I remain open and hope for the best? When there are millions of individuals "flipping that same coin," there will be millions who will take the risk - certainly enough to maintain critical mass for further spread of the virus. Since the virus is going to spread anyway, then where's the virtue in being one of the responsible ones who choose to shut down? So then even more people will make the risky choice, and on and on. It's a classic "free rider" problem.

        The only way we can collectively do the right thing is if we do it....collectively. i.e. through government policy. It's the only way.
        Yes, the state must be tougher. Small businesses need help, but general isolation is a must. Unfortunately, in a democratic society and with an active struggle for their rights and freedoms, this is problematic.

          Same reason one of the variants was found at Michigan and shut down their athletic department. People travel and people are selfish.

            Just as selfish is that some students are so upset about losing 2 weeks of their season. This isn't a cancelation, and none of them are losing the benefits of being a student athlete. Just that they are on hold for 2 weeks. Accept it and move on. It's a game.

              As people know, I've been critical of Minnesota's roll out of the vaccine, but I think their current plan is a very good one. Rather than have people try to call in or sign up online for specific appointments, which results in all sorts of log jams, they are just letting eligible people register online over the course of one 24 hour period. Then, they will select at random from that registered group those people to get vaccinated, based upon available doses. Then, as more doses become available, they select, at random, another group from those that registered. Presumably as the registered list shortens, they'll have another registration period and expand the group of people eligible to sign up.

              Now, it'll depend in large part on the willingness and ability of those people who registered to go in and get vaccinated if their name is drawn. Hopefully the system will work such that if someone is drawn but they say they can't make it to their appointment, someone else is then drawn. But it won't work as efficiently if people just don't show up for appointments.

              • I would assume they have backups for every draw or at least something in place so the dose gets used. Who knows though.

                Did I hear right that Florida is fighting the idea of mass vaccination sites like the Administration is suggesting? If so what could possibly be the reason behind that.

                To tell you how bad the former crew did in all of this the CDC still can't even answer the question of how many vaccines they have available. This is what happens when you have no central leadership. If the CDC can't even tell the Governors how many shots they are going to have how can the Governors plan a rollout?

                    I would not be continuing my friendship with someone who so willingly sacrifices his friends and family so he can get his knob wet. That person seems like a psychopath.

                      There’s a reason I dumped him years ago. I use the term friend loosely

                            Cornell Graduate School? I would be surprised by that.

                            Or is he Cornell Law or Cornell Biz / ILR? That wouldn't surprise me at all.

                            I'm gonna assume he isn't Cornell Med or Cornell Vet.
