It feels like a new day in America. Our president is overseas NOT embarrassing the country. The U.S. Senate just passed a bill making Juneteenth a federal holiday. And - of course - we are all emerging from a year of isolation blinking into the bright light of society returning to some semblance of remembered normalcy. With the aggressive push of vaccines, the rates of infection and hospitalization are rapidly dropping.

That deserves some clarification... The rates are dropping in states where a large percentage of the states' population is vaccinated. There is a great disparity between the states, and - as one might expect - severe infections are highest in states with the lowest percentage of vaccinated residents:

Voter Trust
Author: BobR    Date: 06/09/2021 13:44:14

So help me God."
