"Asians are being targeted for hate crimes!"
"GOOD! Run with that! Make sure everyone knows!"
"But, uh, the perpetrators are almost exclusively African Americans!"
"WHAT?!? Never mind... run something else!"

I seem to recall that the #StopAsianHate campaign dropped like a rock once people started realizing that the majority of racist words and acts targeting Asians was not coming from the White Devils everyone loves to demonize.
I miss midrin.
In 2020 she was posting a bunch of rants on Facebook about how America
should be adopting Spain-style or Asia-style hard lockdowns. You know,
she was really quite upset about it. She'd say "of course it's
draconian, but it works, and it's exactly what we should be doing."
The problem with draconian lockdowns is they don't even work that well.
If you shut everything but food, energy and healthcare, food, energy and healthcare workers will go to work, may get infected there, will return home and get their families infected too.
I have first hand experience with hard lockdowns which didn't prevent Hospitals from being overloaded, so I am not exactly a fan of the argument that locked up countries are doing great.

i was hoping it was just the weather as it rained Saturday.. but no.. no rain today, still have it.
