Breaking it down

A rainy Thursday. Rain is good.

Here’s what the judge said when sentencing a January 6 rioter: “You called yourself and the others patriots, but that’s not patriotism. Patriotism is loyalty to country, loyalty to the Constitution, not loyalty to a single head of state. That’s the tyranny we rejected on July 4th of 1776.”

I’ve been out of the country for the past week or so and upon return it looks like covid is back in the news. The administration is considering requiring vaccination for all international travelers. Good idea. Louisiana is reeling. Florida is out of control. Locally, Barnstable, Plymouth and and Nantucket are hotspots. And just when we thought it was over. In England, their recent surge collapsed just they were reopening. Hopefully that happens here as well.

Running an airline is hard. Too hard, apparently, for Spirit.

Some people thought machine learning and AI could predict the path of covid spread and allow for preventative interventions. That didn’t happen. Bad data in, bad information out.

And how about a tomato sandwich for lunch today? Bread, tomato, mayo, salt and pepper. Nothing more, nothing less. Well, maybe a slice of bacon.
