So Loggy don’t get me going on languages. I used the word malice in my previous post. Mal In Spanish (and the original Latin of course) means bad or something to that effect. Malaria…bad air…Well they had it right sort of course, even if mosquitoes were the vectors the jist of the whole thing was correct.

There is a lot of malaria going on in politics in the US these days….

Oh, and the word mosquito in Spanish. Moscas are flies. Mosquitos equal very very small flies.

Don’t get me going on la Cucaracha.

OK so I was going to shut up (cierra la boca cabron!) but I needed to express this last thought for this evening. In Latin sin means “without” and that is the base for the Catholic word sin. One commits a sin, henceforth existing outside of the godly world. I have never done such as Tat is solely guilty of all of them. And hence absolves me of all of my withouts.

But there is a point I was trying to make here. There are cardinal sins (and I suppose Capital sins) in Catholicism. And in the Philippines a while back there was a literal Cardinal Sin. I’m sorry I cannot make this up so help me Bejezuzzs.

You go my goat on that one, who knew?

I dont really speak Spanish but lived in South America for 2 years. I dont know the meaning of many idioms, but I picked that one up as it was frequently used when I was around??

We do have some good news today! AstraZeneca has a USDA EUA for it's long-acting Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail for prophylaxis in the immune-compromised, right down to 12 years old. This not for people who have active Covid infections. It's for those of us who can't mount an immune response to infection or vaccination, because of disease or immunosuppresive treatment. This is great news for folks who have been hiding in their sealed bubbles for fear they will catch it and die. One IM injection every six months.

We also have an expansion of the Eli Lilly Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail EUA that allows use right down to newborn. Which is great for babies born with active Covid infections, and also for kids with co-morbidities.

New paper out that studied hundreds of thousands of patient records: Vaccinated people who than get infected are 7-10 times less likely to have multiple Long Covid symptoms that the unvaccinated. They also found that people who get infected and then get a vaccine soon after are 4 times less likely to get Long Covid symptoms than people who don't get vaccinated. That last one is a weird thing nobody can explain! They just find that it works for a lot of people.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

So, if I hadn't been forced to wait from March 2020 until March 2021 to become fully vaccinated, I wouldn't be such a COVID long-haul zombie now?
Great. 🙄
