    Maybe, just maybe, masks work.   AP this morning:

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado has reported a substantial decrease in deaths and hospitalizations from the influenza amid public health measures meant to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

    The state Department of Public Health and Environment reported a total of 24 hospitalizations from the flu between Sept. 27 and Feb. 20.

    At around this time in last year’s flu season, over 2,400 people had been hospitalized. The state reported a total of 3,546 flu hospitalizations across its 2019-20 flu season.

    This year’s flu season will last through May 22, according to the state health department.

    And while three people have died from the flu so far this season, 143 died during the 2019-2020 season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Dio – you posted about the South Dakota AG yesterday. Here’s an update:

    South Dakota AG Jason Ravnsborg was reading Joe Biden conspiracy theories at John Solomon’s Just The News website while driving when he slammed into a man, killing him and hitting him so hard the man’s face came through the windshield. (Ravnsborg claimed he thought he hit a deer)

    Dept. Of You Can't Make This Stuff Up:

    Hasbro is dropping all gender References to Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head.  The product is now just "Potato Head."

     Is this the ultimate in political correctness?

    Do we now have to use the term LGBTP?

    For Potato?

    Where is Lauren Boebert when we need her?

    Actually, scrub that.

    There is no conceivable set of circumstances when we would need Two Gun Tootsie.

    Or a Potato Head doll.

    How do you misgender a potato, anyway?

    Today is National Customized Wheel and Tire Day.

  6. But was "Mr" Potato Head really a "Mister"?  I mean, I looked and didn't see anything that would suggest a "Mr".  Are all Potato Heads in drag?  I  am so confused. And then there is Ken… I mean, well, we all know by now, right? So are we ok with children's toys just deciding what gender they are and identifying as such? Like is Malibu Barbie really Black or is she just Rachel Dolazal Barbie?  I need answers.

    The Birth of Bidenomics? 

    The president wants to do to Ronald Reagan’s governing philosophy what Reagan did to FDR’s.

    Similarly, Pew found, “the wealth gap between America’s richest and poorer families more than doubled from 1989 to 2016. “As Warren Buffet noted, supply-side economics had oversupplied the overdogs: “There’s class warfare, all right . . . but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”
