but not Connecticut, which was either inadvertent or, more likely, a nod to the Nutmeg State’s very different media and cultural environment. I mean, my God, they root for the Yankees down there.

I’m Guessing Cameron Lives West of the Mississippi
I was reading another excellent review article from Cameron this morning and chuckled at this.
First he says:
“My house is old (built in 1953”
Then He says:
“Granted, a lot of that has to do with the fact that my house is super old”
Here in New England a 68 year old house is more than a hundred of years shy of being super old. Back when I visited some historic sites in Utah I’d noticed that other tourists from west of the Mississippi thought things were old, while our group was thinking those things aren’t very old.

Lipstick on a Frog
ACIP voting member Helen “Keipp” Talbot, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University, spoke of hospitals crammed with unvaccinated patients sick with COVID-19. “In all honesty, we could give boosters to people, but that’s not really the answer to this pandemic,” Dr. Talbott said. “I feel like we’re putting lipstick on frogs. This is not going to solve the pandemic.”

Stupid Headline of the Day
Man killed after crash on Rt. 146 in Lincoln
That reads as if the man was killed sometime after the crash, being RI maybe it was a Mafia hit job they had to finish. 🙂
Of course when you read the article that’s not what happened.
Accurate versions for the headline:
- Man dies after crash on Rt. 146 in Lincoln
- Man killed in crash on Rt. 146 in Lincoln
