Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Many Americans don’t know what to believe about COVID-19 because public health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci have flip-flopped so many times on so many issues it’s hard to keep track. Turning on the news isn’t helpful either, as viewers will likely be met with doom and gloom stories about the pandemic, including death tracker chyrons (thanks, CNN) that seemed to stay on screen no matter what topic is being discussed (at least under Trump).

Vaccine Math. $500 Per Shot?

by John H. Cochranevia The Grumpy Economist
Tuesday, February 16, 2021

I'm reading up on the $1.9 trillion "stimulus." This caught me eye: Biden's plan would set out $160 billion for a nationwide vaccine program that would help state and local governments get the vaccine into people's arms.There are 328 million people in the US. $160 billion is just about exactly $500 per person.
