  1. This isn’t a good example to use for the case against high speed chases. In this case, only the people acting in a criminal manner were killed and injured. This is a “play stupid games, win stupid prizes” case. The choices these young people made were colossally bad on a scale shocking for their ages. I think we should be asking how did kids this age get to be committing so many crimes in such a short period of time, instead of saying the police shouldn’t have chased them. The police also weren’t going faster and faster, otherwise the driver couldn’t have been increasing distance between them.
  2. “I’m sorry you are going through that. That’s a hard situation. What are you going to do about it?” is a valid response when the texts start coming again.
  3. This is going to show my age, but I watched the original series in the 70s and 80s with my parents when I was I won’t say what age. Now I’m watching it with my 14yo dd. It’s so amazing.
  4. People used to be arrested and detained for violating health department ordered quarantines or other public health orders. Typhoid Mary is the most famous/infamous of those cases. Yes, police have been used in the past to enforce public health orders for the greater good of the public health. It hasn’t been necessary or the norm since vaccination and good sanitation became widespread, but it is not out of the question in serious situations.
  5. The laugh is for the ad. I’m sorry about dd’s gift.
  6. I’m sorry people are so rude. They should not be that way with you. This is an awful time to work where you work. I’m sorry you were treated poorly.
  7. Technically, the health department is the Covid police...Public Health Orders are enforced by Health Departments.
  8. I am so happy you are back. I’ve been wondering how you were doing. I am also glad you are getting help. The world needs you in it.
  9. Do you typically sit 6 feet away from dining companions? I have never experienced that. I think it would be difficult to enjoy a conversation that way. Unless people are only dining with people in their own household, they are going to be unmasked within 6 feet of others for more than 15 minutes. That’s the standard. So a group of 10 people in a restaurant who don’t all live together is a high risk.
  10. Can I just say how I love the image of teaching physics in a ballroom. I don’t know why, but I do.
  11. I’m still mulling. If anyone else can’t settle on one, here’s a Word of the Year Generator. Spin the wheel until one that feels right comes up!
  12. It’s comforting to them to think they won’t get it because they “do all the right things”. It’s like blaming what a woman was wearing or where she was when she was assaulted. It’s not healthy, but it is common.
  13. We retested after 90 days on the name brand and they were normal. They’ve stayed normal for years.
  14. Quoting myself to add info. My liver enzymes stayed abnormal until I was on the name brand. The thyroid numbers were fine on generic, just not liver.
