Interestingly, they're now offering $100 debit cards to people who get vaccinated... But only for those who start doing such today... How do the hospitalization and death rates compare with the reporting of new cases? Inquiring minds wish to know.

My mom has a thing in her eye socket (I can’t remember what it’s called) that gives her horrible headaches (she calls them headache bombs). They knock her on her tush for days at a time. She needs surgery to have it removed, but no one will do it because it’s “not necessary”. She may not be actually dying from it, but she’s in horrible pain most of the time and unable to function. And that’s not even mentioning the hip replacement that she needs done. I'm sure all the persons making the "not necessary" decision would quickly revise their opinion if they were wired up with a remote control cattle prod that your mother could activate every time she has a headache coming on. It's always the people with no investment in a situation who will trivialize someone else's pain. Hope she gets proper medical attention soonest.
