  1. When are we going to hear about why exactly the security at the Capitol was so bad, including why it appeared that officers opened the door and opened the security gates to the protestors, and why the security was so lax in the first place? Who made these decisions and why?
  2. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/sweden-s-king-says-we-have-failed-over-covid-19-n1251670
  3. From what I understand, the racial disparities (Blacks and Latinos/Hispanics) are mainly due to two factors: underlying health conditions and work/living conditions. The comorbidities are due in part to socioeconomic factors such as a history of lack of access to healthcare and healthy food and lifelong stresses from discrimination. Infections are also more common among people who cannot work from home, must use public transportation, and/or who live in more crowded dwellings.
  4. Does anyone know how someone can find out when/how they will be able to receive a vaccination? Is it employer-based? My mom is 68 and works at an assisted-living facility. She has asked her manager but her manager seems fairly clueless so far and does not have any sense of urgency about vaccinations. Some of her colleagues at her workplace don't even believe in masks, despite the fact that they are taking care of elderly, vulnerable patients.
  5. Virtually every single professor (with a doctoral degree) at every university I've attended or taught at goes by Dr. __________. This is such a non-issue raised by people who don't seem to know much about academia.
  6. IMO, the problem with Mayor Pete is that he's not going to energize the young/progressive vote, or the black vote. More promising, I think, are either moderate POC candidates such as Kamala and Cory Booker or young, social progressives such as AOC (or others we may be less familiar with right now).
  7. Biden just needs PA, MI, WI, MN, and either NH or NV, right?
  8. Voting in Scranton was super easy. Hardly a line at all, yet a fairly steady stream of people. Some fool with a Trump flag tried to hand me a pamphlet. I gave them the coldest stare.
  9. Every single time I go to the grocery store, there is without exception at least 1 or 2 fools who are wearing masks either below their chin or below their nose. Occasionally, one of these fools is a store employee. I'd say something but, you know, who wants to get shot?
  10. If it makes you feel any better, I live in Scranton and NEPA is one of the big swing areas in PA (along with the suburbs of Philly and Pittsburgh). Without exaggeration, I can say that driving around different parts of Scranton, the number of Biden signs compared to Trump signs is at least 20 to 1, if not 30 to 1. The Biden signs are everywhere. Maybe it is somewhat influenced by Biden being a "hometown" guy (he lived here until age 10, I think). But it makes me feel like maybe people have not completely lost their minds.
  11. Completely unscientific but the Biden/Harris signs in Scranton right now outnumber Trump signs by at least 20 to 1. Scranton (Lackawanna County) went for Hillary last time 49/46. Wilkes-Barre tends to be a little more conservative.
