Bare Faced or Just Exposed

Over or so they say. Is the pandemic really over? Really over? Should we keep asking or just breathe a sigh of relief, easier now since we’re no longer masked? We have been told that most of us can take off our masks in most places, but there are caveats. The vulnerable should remain masked.…

Exposed

President Biden noted a sad occasion on Friday, February 4, 2022. The President marked the death of 900,000 Americans from Covid. Each death is not just a number but an “irreplaceable soul – beloved mothers and fathers, grandparents, children, brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends,” the president said in a special statement issued by the White…

Soldier On

Back in the old days, many a war movie often included this adage: “Never volunteer.” But that was then, and this is now. New Mexico, like the rest of America, is in crisis mode.

New Year – New Day?

Trick? Or Treat? Safe? Or Sorry?

Just days before Halloween, Friday, October 29th, to be exact, the Food and Drug Administration – not a bunch of people known for their sense of holiday fun – authorized a Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 – 11. That means that twenty-eight million unvaccinated children in the United States can roll up their costume…

Ho-Ho-Ho and a Boo Back at You

The holidays are right around the corner. Like most Americans, I’m getting prepared, especially for Halloween, only days away. In years past, I’ve been a witch, which rhymes with b-t-h, a description many of my associates have used to describe me. This year is no different with one exception; I haven’t had a personality change,…

A Shot or Not?

President Biden recently rolled up his sleeve on TV, getting his third shot, in his case a booster, to protect him from the coronavirus. But the photo-op wasn’t really about boosters, according to CBS News. It was the president’s way of encouraging more Americans to get vaccinated against the corona virus. That’s right: Get shots…
