    Well, my wife and I now qualify for Oregon’s vaccine Hunger Games. We set up accounts at the laughably title getvaccinated.Oregon.gov website. Now we wait for the random drawing of our names for a future appointment at the Convention Center. 1,900 appointments this week for a pool of several hundred thousand seniors. There are another 2,500 at PDX for folks with mobility issues. How is it possible that the Portland Metro Area, with almost half of the state’s population, only gets allocated 4,400 doses for the week for first time shots?

    Tried playing the pharmacy game. That’s a mess too. Not holding my breath on getting an appointment any time soon.

    In other news, CDC says it's just dandy to open schools without teachers being vaccinated, apparently oblivious to the fact that the new variants caused all kinds of infections among kids in European schools. Mixed messaging much?

    While white Republicans (are there any other kind?) are most likely to refuse vaccine.

    750 Oregonians out of 255K in the 65-69 got the luck of the draw today for vaccines. What a joke!

    Do you believe that $37/hr. is a lot of money? That's a little over twice the proposed minimum wage. You must be one of those high income earners.

    Texas becomes biggest US state to lift COVID-19 mask mandate
    Texas is lifting a COVID-19 mask mandate that was imposed last summer but has only been lightly enforced

    AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas is lifting its mask mandate, Gov. Greg Abbott said Tuesday, making it the largest state to end an order intended to prevent the spread of the coronavirus that has killed more than 42,000 Texans.

    The Republican governor has faced sharp criticism from his party over the mandate, which was imposed eight months ago, and other COVID-19 restrictions. It was only ever lightly enforced, even during the worst outbreaks of the pandemic.

    Texas will also do away with limits on the number of diners that businesses can serve indoors, said Abbott, who made the announcement at a restaurant in Lubbock. He said the new rules would take effect March 10.

    “Removing statewide mandates does not end personal responsibility,” said Abbott, speaking from a crowded dining room where many of those surrounding him were not wearing masks.

    “It’s just that now state mandates are no longer needed,” he said..............
