Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Yeah, don't ask me why, but Raindog's quip reminded me of that yarn about Bono (the most pretentious man on the planet apart from Sting, or possibly Geldof): "At a U2 concert in Glasgow, Bono asks the audience for some quiet. Then in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands. Holding the audience in total silence, he says into the microphone, 'Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.' A voice from near the front pierces the silence: 'Well, stop clapping your fucking hands then!' "

Anyway, enough of the diversions. Back to the substantive. Joe wants the world vaccinated. He's yet to tell us how it can be delivered, but I like the sentiment. The way out can only be by vaccination, and we are not safe until everyone's safe.
