Social media is a killer, it has a memory that lasts forever. Here are a couple of twitter items. One is from comedic actor Rob Schneider, of all people (Hot Chick has to be one of the funniest movies ever), retweeting the surgeon general’s tweet from last spring. I completely agree with this and it is consistent with the science.
The second is OmnipotentMoralBusybody’s take on a podcast from Dr. Osterholm. I am tempted to remove him from the Axis of Evil and instead put him in the bumbling, over the hill, professor category. This is also an incredibly accurate assessment of what he has said. Of course, we are now more than halfway through his prediction that the next 14 weeks would be the worst yet. Hospitalizations are down a mere 60% in that time. Hospitals probably aren’t happy about this turn of events, but patients are.
