Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Good Bono joke.

That kind of humour is on display in a good show to watch during the Covid Continuation: Ted Lasso. It celebrates the mutual appreciation between our two sides of the Atlantic Ocean, where an American football coach is hired to manage a Manchester UK football team. I'm quite enjoying it.

The local headlines have been focused on our sad rate of Covid infection, which apparently leads the nation in per capita cases. According to the Daily News, people have died due to lack of availability of treatment room and proper medical equipment. Because of our low overall population the death count is very low. Most people I interact with are healthy, masked, or both. Our schools are open for now. The epidemologists are calling attention to the likelihood that Alaska lags the other states, so they hope our numbers start to decline within a week or so after the Labor Day celebrations.
