  3. Focus on vaccines and tests has been obscuring the existing shortage of oxygen in low- and middle-income countries [Click] International efforts to increase supplies are barely starting. [I note with alarm all the people moving the cylinders without proper carts, often with the caps removed. Those things are very heavy, and if the valve stems break the cylinders can turn into rockets.]

  4. I remember that the first thing my mother would say about FDR was that he gave us beer again. The cash benefits that Biden brought people will probably be remembered in the same way, and woe betide the Republicans if they take it away. I am also reminded of how Truman won by running against a "do-nothing Congress."

    1. I remember the Truman campaign -- I was 12 at the time. Was that Congress really worse than our present do-nothing Senate?

    2. I can't say whether it was better or worse, Bill--but I suspect it was probably better. But it does seem possible that the GOP senators may be walking into a trap of their own making.
