The news came out that there was an experiment at Boston University to try to make a potentially more lethal SARS-CoV-2 omicron virus. On face value this seems like an incredibly stupid idea, but with more investigation, it’s actually worse than that! There is a federal biodefense lab at Boston University (National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory)Continue reading “I didn’t believe anything about COVID could upset me anymore until I heard about these folks at Boston University…”

Is the pandemic over?
Last week on 60 Minutes President Biden announced “The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lot of work on it.” Many people were surprised by this statement, especially since US had just rolled out new COVID vaccine boosters. I would like to address two specific issues; whetherContinue reading “Is the pandemic over?”
Are we ready for a 4th COVID-19 booster? Absolutely not!
As we struggle in the United States to get even a minority of adults immunized with a third booster shot of the mRNA vaccines, a news story came out of Israel suggesting that they are essentially ready to begin to administer a fourth dose of the Pfizer vaccine. One of my loyal readers was concerned about thisContinue reading “Are we ready for a 4th COVID-19 booster? Absolutely not!”
Biscuit honors Memorial Day with a nap.
Biscuit is back with his Memorial Day worst COVID-19 (or SARS-CoV-2) ideas of the week. For most of us Memorial Day weekend has a solemn nature remembering those that we have lost in wars and other conflicts. This is an especially appropriate thing to do this year. For Biscuit, it just means the beginning ofContinue reading “Biscuit honors Memorial Day with a nap.”
Biscuit and Nindy get good news! We get the worst COVID ideas of the week
While most of us were frustrated this week by bizarre federal hearings and the seeming lack of progress in managing the pandemic, Biscuit was ecstatic! First, both Biscuit and Nindy started shedding with the warm weather, so they don’t need haircuts like everyone else in the house. Then both were happy to hear that notContinue reading “Biscuit and Nindy get good news! We get the worst COVID ideas of the week”
Biscuit’s bad week.
Biscuit has had a very stressful week. He was devastated to hear that Wendy’s had run out of hamburgers, then shocked to think that the meat packing plant that provides his favorite chew bones might close due to COVID-19. Luckily, he was much better by the end of the week as his concerns were notContinue reading “Biscuit’s bad week.”
Biscuit returns, albeit a bit hoarse…
Biscuit and Nindy return to talk about their dumbest COVID-19 ideas of the week. Nindy had to do most of the talking though since Biscuit tried to drink the Lysol. Poor dog just believes everything he hears on TV…. 1) Underestimating COVID-19 infection rates. Infection rates have been remarkably underestimated, which gives people a false senseContinue reading “Biscuit returns, albeit a bit hoarse…”
Biscuit’s bad COVID ideas return, with a friend to help!
It’s Saturday and time for Biscuit’s truly bad coronavirus ideas of the week. Unfortunately, Biscuit is basking in his notoriety and tried to negotiate for compensation to use his likeness. I overcame this by including his friend Nindy, who is willing to do this service for free. Nindy is more interested in social consciousness thanContinue reading “Biscuit’s bad COVID ideas return, with a friend to help!”
Biscuit is Back with this Week’s Worst Coronavirus Ideas.
It’s Saturday so Biscuit is back with his worst coronavirus ideas of the week. See if you agree. 1) Mega church services with everyone in attendance. Not only are the parishioners at risk, but several of the pastors have died from coronavirus. God helps those who help themselves! We will miss Easter, but will beContinue reading “Biscuit is Back with this Week’s Worst Coronavirus Ideas.”
The coronavirus is not a hoax, but a lot of people seem to think it is….
I often think that television “news” is based on the premise that you can always find defeat in any victory. Much like the Weather Channel now names winter storms, the more fear you can whip up the better the ratings. There is certainly enough trauma from COVID-19 without making it worse for people. The goodContinue reading “The coronavirus is not a hoax, but a lot of people seem to think it is….”
