We’re all afraid. We’re afraid of  being infected with COVID-19. This pandemic has killed more than 11,000 people in the US (as I write this) and tens of thousands more around the world. Our government has had to place restrictions upon us, extraordinary, restrictions, and most people (last number 93%) were cooperating with what the government has recommended. Some people don’t believe that these social distancing and stay at home orders will, in the long run, do much to mitigate this awful virus. We’re beginning to see that it may be working. We have a way to go, but it’s possible that the worst is coming to an end.

Alyssa Milano’s Very Bad Day

ACE73A60-CA09-40CF-9698-C1EBE797D295

There are somedays when someone creates a storm on Twitter that just makes my day. It’s especially fun to  witness a person who has claimed to fight for something – justice –  become a complete hypocrite in less than five minutes. I’m referring to Alyssa Milano, the actress famous for the Charmed series so years ago who has been outspoken in the #MeToo movement. As many are aware, former vice president Joe Biden has been accused by a former staffer of sexual assault in 1993. You may not be aware of this because it’s never been broadcast on any of the mainstream networks, nor have any mainstream news sources picked up the story. Odd, isn’t it?

Cancelling In Person Religious Services

What comes to mind when you think of the COVID-19 pandemic? Certainly the infection rate, and of course, the number of deaths in our country, if not around the world. The thought, at least for me, that comes to mind is how contagious this virus is. Some reports say it’s three times as contagious as influenza, and we’re aware of how many people, in the US alone, the flu kills every season. So most states have some sort of lockdown in place, where people are ordered to stay home, except to receive essential services, or those that provide those same services. Indications seem to be that this is working, at least a little for now and anything we as individuals can do  to mitigate the spread of this virus, however disagreeable in the short term.

Is it Time to Start Pointing Fingers?

4ACAB614-7AA3-440C-98E7-2868601AEAD8

Everyone wants to point fingers of blame when things go awry. It doesn’t matter what it is that went wrong, people seem to want to use hindsight to  say woulda, shoulda, coulda as they are pointing their fingers at the person(s) most responsible for whatever the occurrence was. A major hurricane? It’s got yo be due to climate change and the reason the climate is changing and spawning these horrific storms is a failure in the leadership of our country to do anything to reduce carbon emission that are causing the heat that results in these storms.

Church is an Essential Service

E92CC880-FBA1-4AB3-A67C-250E09424AE8

So I heard that now Texas, and Florida are both on statewide lockdown, instead of, like Florida, only some counties in the south, and Texas, just closing schools. Of course, like everywhere else, essential services are still open,  like grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores, and churches. Yes, you read that correctly. Going to church is considered essential.  I am not against thee free exercise of religion, but these people cannot skip services for a month? We’re looking at four, FOUR, Sunday services.
