I’ve only been saying this for a year…
The photos of Clearwater Beach, Fla., went viral last spring: people crowded on the sand, seemingly unconcerned about the deadly new contagion coursing across the world. Local officials, accused of fueling a public health crisis, quickly shut 35 miles of county beaches and left them closed for weeks.
What a difference a year makes. The beaches were even busier this year, but officials say there were no talks of closure. There was also far less outcry.
And with good reason, according to many scientists and public health experts, who say that the outdoor spaces now warming under spring sun should be viewed as havens in the battle against a stubborn virus and restriction-induced fatigue. For more than a year, the vast majority of documented coronavirus clusters have been linked to indoor or indoor-outdoor settings — households, meatpacking plants, nursing homes and restaurants. Near-absent are examples of transmission at beaches and other open spaces where breezes disperse airborne particles, distancing is easier, and humidity and sunlight render the coronavirus less viable.

When Vice President Harris visited a woman-owned yarn shop in Alexandria last month, she mentioned a little-known fact about herself that left the fiber arts community a bit giddy.
The new vice president is a crocheter.

Tell Liberals it cures COVID, they’ll believe anything.
The implants built by California-based Neuralink will one day allow those with physical disabilities to control a computer with their thoughts.
The company released a video last week of a brain-chipped monkey apparently playing video games with its mind.
Similar technology could make its way to human test subjects by the end of the year if the start-up meets a previous prediction from Musk.
The billionaire Tesla boss tweeted in February: “Neuralink is working super hard to ensure implant safety & is in close communication with the FDA.
“If things go well, we might be able to do initial human trials later this year.”
