From the New York Times editorial:

If building resilience is one imperative, another is making sure that America’s power systems, the grid in particular, are reconfigured to do the ambitious job Mr. Biden has in mind for them — to not just survive the effects of climate change but to lead the fight against it. Mr. Biden’s lofty goal is to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by midcentury and to eliminate fossil fuel emissions from the power sector by 2035. In the simplest terms, this will mean electrifying everything in sight: a huge increase in battery-powered cars and in charging stations to serve them; a big jump in the number of homes and buildings heated by electric heat pumps instead of oil and gas; and, crucially, a grid that delivers all this electricity from clean energy sources like wind and solar.

Supply had not caught up with demand as of yesterday morning.  I'd read on facebook last Thursday about Wal Mart being out of milk among many other items, when they weren't closed because of no power.

I usually buy a weekend local paper and a Fort Worth Star Telegram on Sunday morning.  I needed a gallon of skim milk as I use a cup in the morning's to take pills and vitamins with.  Also a gallon of whole milk for grandkids coming later in the day.  Went to the one big full service grocery in town (HEB) as they are one of the few places to reliably get the Star Telegram.  First sign was the totally empty 50' of bread aisle (ok, 2 small loaves of high $ multi grain specialty bread), next to it 6' of empty tortilla shelves.  Round the corner into refrigerated, not an egg in sight, nor any margarine, biscuits, or milk.  No bacon, sausage, sandwich meats or cheese.  Good thing our freezer is full.

I asked the lady at the checkout if she'd heard any rumors about milk coming in.  No, but she heard Aldi and Dollar General had milk.  Stopped at Aldi.  Round the corner to refrigerated, a full door of eggs (limit 2), empty shelves, then I spied One gallon of milk.  Looked for other shoppers nearby as I rushed to it.  1%, works for me.  Lady in line in front of me (6') said is that all you have?  Go ahead.  She only had 4-5 items.  That's ok, no hurry but thanks.  This is the last gallon of milk in the store, HEB has none, was told here or Dollar General.  She had been to DG before Aldi, and noticed, no milk there.

I bought a generator a long time ago for power failure up in the Mountains. It works well, but it doesn't give you heat and you have to get an ice chest, for food. It's kind of loud because logistically I can't dig a hole for it. But it's been quite a security blanket.

So Biden is killing as many people statistically in one month as it took Trump 3 months to do?

I did see yesterday that one of our local major hospital systems announced that they have zero inpatient Covid cases for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

Biden hasn't killed anyone.  He inherited the pandemic severely under addressed by the former fake prez.

This is almost like saying the BOP inherited from Eisenhower, tricky dick and dulles by JFK was his fault.

I think you could find a better analogy, Ron.

Kennedy made a mistake giving the BOP the green light.

Biden is correcting Trump’s mistakes.

It's a cycle that started first with spikes of exposure during the holidays, then spikes of infection, followed by  spikes of hospitalization, then spikes of death. The cycle from from Xmas is finished. Now a good number of people are seeing a much greater effort toward vaccination. More people are being vaccinated and more people are behaving better anticipating  vaccines.

Now, There's a race to get more people vaccinated before the one thing that poses the biggest danger, the most dangerous of the variants enter the population.

Congratulations W on your thread making 100 pages.  It's certainly been relevant this past year and still is.  Thanks again to the moderators for letting it survive while not directly related to JFK's assassination it still manages to do so at points throughout it.  And it pertains to All of us who've survived thus far.

100 men will test today...

Ron,

      There are reports that pianist Gene Taylor may have frozen to death in his Austin apartment last week.  He played keyboards with T. Bone Walker, Canned Heat, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and others over the years.  68 years young.

      Quite the boogie woogie pianist-- with a proverbial "left hand like God."

      Have you heard anything about this one?

No.  I've never heard of the guy.  The two T-Bir albums I have from 82' & 86' have a guest pianist on 2total songs.  This is sad though.  Suffering through 5 days of no heat in that weather at any age much less at 68.

Always felt "Green Berets" was a bit of a ripoff of Mitch Miller's theme for The Longest Day (1962):

I guess it has to sound like a beer commercial because they're fighting Germans.
