Minnesota actually sequences a lot of our virus samples, so it isn’t completely surprising, but the world-ending Moronic variant (do the anagram) was identified here in our own above average state; with only the second official national case. Now those who live here know that the Moronic variant has been around since the start of the epidemic, in the form of our political leaders, from the top down, and our DOH. So I don’t know why the panic, the Moronic variants have already done enormous damage to all aspects of life in the state–health, educational, social, business, financial–so I don’t see how things could be any worse. And the Nu Moronic variant that has everyone abuzz apparently is quite mild, so it would be a great improvement on the Moronic variants we have suffered under since March of 2020, well actually way longer than that. The Moronic variant seems to spread mostly in one political party and does extensive cognitive damage. I see nothing to get worked up over, in fact, just another day in the paradise that is Minnesota.
