This time last year the epi-Nazis were telling us not to get together with our beloved family and friends; to instead cower in our basements and suck our thumbs. I was appropriately outraged and suggested that everyone do what they would normally do, without masks and without staying ten miles apart. Hug each other and enjoy one of those precious few moments in life when we reciprocally revel in our pleasure and joy at interacting with other humans. To a lesser degree, we are getting some of the same stupid advice this year. But I am deeply gratified to see that most of the population has no intention of paying any attention to this nonsense, and instead will have a traditional celebration of Thanksgiving. This may be partly due to vaccinations, or people who have already been infected, but I think there is a general sense of exhaustion at the constant terror campaign and perhaps a more general awareness that CV-19 is not a serious threat to almost everyone and that we will just have to live with it.
So I want to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving, make up for lost time with friends and family, nothing is more important in life. And resolve that each of us will do everything we can to ensure that never again do we allow governments and the public health establishments to take away our basic freedoms to live our lives as we choose, particularly when the actions that do so have no precedent and no basis in research or data. Happy Thanksgiving!!
