Common Sense

RIP former US Secretary of State Colin Powell, a remarkable man. To those anti-vax idiots who point out that General Powell died of COVID even though he was fully vaccinated for it, please consider the following. He also had cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, and he was 84 years old! Get vaccinated for COVID. Not just because it will protect you, but because you being vaccinated will protect people around you as well. 

My dad’s death certificate said he died of a hemorrhage. But, what caused the hemorrhage? He had COPD for more than a dozen years. Notwithstanding what the death certificate said, that’s what really killed him.


Congratulations to the Houston Astros, champions of the American League.  I’m betting nobody at the Fox Network, which carries the World Series, wants the Braves to win the National League Championship this weekend.  Why?  Because an Atanta-Houston World Series will be the most regional match up possible, which will reduce the ratings for the national event the network hopes it will be.
