A personal note

2020-11-07
levelling the field before planting trees

I have been sick. No, it’s not the novel coronavirus, it’s one of the older ones– at least I have partial immunity to it. But I did have diarrhea, then a sore throat, followed by a runny nose and a cough. I also felt very tired and sleepy. This has been going on for two weeks now.

I don’t know, maybe it is the novel coronavirus and I just have a mild case. It’s not bad enough to bother any of our healthcare workers other than my wife. She told me to rest, take ibuprofen, and take an antibiotic. So I did, and I am. I’m starting to feel better, but I still have that persistent cough and runny nose.

Since I have had chronic sinusitis in the past, I have been particularly cautious about avoiding complications. Besides, I don’t feel like doing anything anyway.

Why am I even saying this? Because I was feeling much better this afternoon as the major news services have forecasted a Biden/Harris win in the election currently being contested. That makes me feel better, and it should make you feel better too. Especially if you are not a non-college-educated, male, conservative, narcissist, with a European background– if you are NOT identified with these things, then you should be especially feeling good. Even if you are most of those things, you should still feel good.

I’ll say it again: no matter who you are, he-who-must-not-be-named is better forgotten forever. If that person happens to be indicted by State of New York or even a federal Attorney General, then you can feel vindicated.

If you somehow identify with that person, you shouldn’t be reading this because it won’t suit you. This blog insists upon being fact-oriented, non-religious, appropriately skeptical, and other things like that. There might even be a slight whiff of socialism adjacent to this text.

So I admit it: I have been sick, and I’m feeling better because the Democrat appears to have won the election. I’m not happy because the Senate is not flipping to the Democrats, but we can deal with that later.
