^^^ All true except the notion that all poorly educated white men are Republican. Poorly educated white men who are or were members of a union are more likely to be Democrat than Republican, for example.

lol @ republicans being poorly educated white men. Maybe in Alabama...but not in MA. Plenty white male and female ivy league grads still around...they're educated but because they think differently than you, you call them poorly educated.

Those who "well gee nobody knows what effect this will have on me in 20 years", as they crack open a Bud Lite or Monster drink, pop 3 Tylenols for that hangover headache, as they get on their iphone and order a stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut...meanwhile take the chance on a severely contagious illness that's potentially debilitating because well...


I mean it's true we can never "for sure" know the long term consequences of "anything", but let's get real here.

Plenty of people drink and indulge in bad food occasionally and they don't have health issues.

Now if someone is doing heroin or cocaine and is worried about what the vaccine might to do them then that's ridiculous

Point is that those things have a greater long term risk to us than any of the Covid vaccines out there, to our current knowledge.

Checked out the traffic on Google Maps and today at least looks comparable to Pre-virus levels.

Office attendance has not returned to pre-pandemic levels but commuter rail and some other public transit is still being avoided so the roads have filled up. If Boston-based employees do not go back to commuter rail and transit when more people go back to the office, the results will be disastrous.

Down to 150 hospitalized. That's not the lowest ever but it's getting pretty close.

Left Boston at about 4:30 to head north for the weekend - traffic on 93 was the worst we’ve experienced since before the pandemic. Not quite pre-Covid Memorial Day weekend levels, but big backups until about the NH line.

Maybe on the south shore west of Route 3?

Uneducated white men is Trump’s core demographic.
