Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

The Democratic Party really seems to be in a pickle. It is becoming increasingly clear that Joe Biden is cognitively not up for the job but also clear that Kamala Harris is so unpopular that she might become a boat anchor for the entire party. What to do? What to do?...  And I wrote the above before reading this article from Victor Davis Hanson. Perhaps great minds think alike (or maybe the problem is just that glaringly obvious despite what the media is not telling us)... I always wanted to visit Australia but after the latest lockdown - not so much anymore... McDonalds says all CUSTOMERS and employees in high COVID areas must wear masks no matter vaccination status. McDonalds stock down $8 since announcement ($244.69 on 8/2 and $236.00 on 8/3). Sure it's unrelated... Celebrity Death Match used to be a big show on MTV. I enjoyed it but today I'd really like to see a Celebrity Rascal Scooters Racing with the first match between Rob Reiner and Rosie O'Donnell. You'd watch that - wouldn't you?... I predicted a couple of weeks ago that failing or struggling brands would try to boost exposure or revenues by simply rebranding themselves by adding a "+" sign or the word "Plus" to the end of their name and shortly thereafter we saw Outside+ and the joke that is CNN+. Now we see the media trying to rebrand the Delta variant as the Delta Plus variant. What does that say about the seriousness of the variant and the lack of the public buying into new lockdowns?...
