    The New York Times trying to make a controversy out of having too much vaccine is the kind of ultra-optimistic fantasy that a Resistance twitter account would have been mocked for in 2020.

    Man whose QAnon grandfather thinks that the COVID vaccines have a “kill switch” in them which will are genetically programmed to kill only white Christians. He asked his grandfather to explain. The answer below – is nuts, even for QAnon.

    @danpfeiffer with nail on head.

    If we want to make sure ppl know about the American Rescue Plan, ppl have to step up and run the ad campaigns for it.

    That’s the way to get through right now.

    A massive container ship blocking Egypt’s Suez Canal for nearly a week has been partially refloated, the Suez Canal Authority said, raising hopes the busy waterway will soon be reopened for a huge backlog of ships

    • nedhamson says:

      Seems impossible that one ship could have gotten itself stuck like this. Remember my passage through the canal years ago but our ship was tiny – 125 feet in comparison to that huge container ship.

    Brendan Fraser’s career didn’t fizzle, it was sabotaged after he was sexually assaulted by a Golden Globes bigwig. The HFPA didn’t deny the assault, they claimed it was meant as a “joke” (their word).
