The good news on the two new international vaccines for COVID-19 is all over the media, but I’m worried. We have too far to go, and vaccines' approval will not solve anything until next year.

Between the idiots who’s stupidity is threatened by practical controls to limit the pandemic and people fed up from nice months of insanity made unbearable by an incompetent and criminal regime in Washington DC, things may yet explode.

The reality is that when things blow up, it is not in the face of continued hardship, but when there is hope, and it begins to slip away. Revolutions happen when people see that things could be better, and they become emotional when better things are delayed or actively sabotaged.

Add Trump’s tiresome whining and insanity with the relentless onslaught of baseless lies supported by the full criminally of his stooges in the Senate and around the country. People have had enough. Many social, educational, and work changes are clearly permanent, but we still have far too many people waiting for things to go back to normal.

At this point, we need to be moving to the normalization of remote work, online education as standard…
