When the pandemic is over……

I hope the lessons learned will not be forgotten.

Who started the exploitation? Local retailers. Family businesses exploiting their neighbors. Why were they torched in Watts? Having lived there, I cheered when I learned about it. Even went to visit the old neighborhood in 1975 to see that the store fronts were still boarded up. When we moved to Florida in 1977, it was the same story in the slum neighborhoods. Local grocers were charging outrageous prices for marginal goods. Today, the “convenience” stores accessible to poor people (forty percent of our school children exist below the poverty line) charge four times as much for pasta noodles than they cost in the chain store markets.

Abstraction

Idealism morphed into wishful thinking and that morphed into advertising.

If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection. It is recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection.

Up2Me Radio

For some time, I have been trying to promote the idea that if Democrats want to communicate with our audio-dependent friends, we have talk to them. Which is probably why an ad for a new radio “station” showed up in my Facebook Feed. It is a very pretty ad for “Up2Me” and is completely empty of information. That is, it does not even hint where the station is to be found, nor what it is about.

Primitives

Primitives are primates whose predatory instincts predominate. They survive in the genome because social support allows them to thrive. In a sense, we keep them as pets to lavish with care. We give; they take. It’s mutually beneficial, until it gets out of hand.
