    My sister in law is in charge of the main homeless program in Hawaii. They had a bunch of vaccine doses they had to administer in 2 hours so they loaded them up in a couple of jeeps, drove to the various homeless encampments, and rousted people from the bushes and told them to go over to the car for a vaccine shot.

    And she said they did, lining up to get a shot from people they didn't know out of a card in a parking lot.

    She asked one of them wasn't he worried about who they were and what it actually was. And he said no, it was either the vaccine or some illegal drug – and he was good with either.

    Weird way to look at it – but they found that they could vaccinate almost all the homeless by just driving to the encampment and providing doses out of the back of a car.

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, step moms, bonus moms, mother figures, mothers in law, outlaw mothers, childless but nurturing people who mother others as best they can…. Enjoy your day! 

    Note to CHB and others: Being inclusive isn’t “ cancel culture” – but the exact opposite.

    Surely you refer to Mitch McConnell, the grim reaper of the Senate

    Deadliest mass shooting in U.S. since…April 15…happened last night in Colorado Springs. Haven't seen any info yet on history of the shooter (maybe a jealous ex though), or type(s) of weapons. https://www.denverpost.com/2021/05/09/suspect-and-multiple-victims-found-dead-in-mobile-home-community-in-colorado-springs/
