Re: “North Coast Co-op: Employee Tested Positive for COVID

Nearly a year after this innocuous little bug raised it's weak little head, ten months after the CDC said everyone in the world should have been infected, and nine months after the CDC said we should have had between 75 million and half a billion deaths, we've had around 400 positives out of some 22,000 tests, hardly anyone has gotten sick, and the only four deaths have been of people in their '90s and it has not been proven that a single one of them actually died from Covid.

When do we end this madness?

Re: “HACHR: City's Claims Being Taken Seriously

Yep, nothing like providing one handy place to buy heroin or speed, get a couple hundred free needles to shoot it up with along with a complete kit so you don't even have to go looking for water -- it's right there in the kit. Then you can shoot up right there in the alley, if the bathroom's already occupied (those heroin junkies can take sooo long to do a hit!).

And just in case you're taking. "harm reduction," seriously, and trying to quit the needle, they also conveniently hand out complete crank-smoking kits, with instructions and everything!

Re: “The Cat Would Like to Offer an Apology

Sentence 3, paragraph 3.

Otherwise, pretty funny.

Good job.

Re: “We've Come to Prefer They/Them Pronouns

I'm totally behind the use of, "they," or,"them," as in the examples given above ("When a customer walks into a restaurant, they can order off the menu" or, "Every attendee brought their dog." ) However, the rest of the time I'd prefer to see pronouns used which reflect reality, rather than what people wish, want, or imagine themselves to be.

Otherwise, I prefer the pronoun, "God Almighty, Ruler of Kings, and the Baddest Motherfucker Around."

Please don't disrespect me by calling me, "he," or, "him," unless, of course, it's capitalized.

Re: “New Baby Names

The author leaves me wondering what, in this day and age, would be considered, "disconcertingly ethnic."

Brian Patrick, perhaps? Or my father's name: Robert Lee. I'll bet that would get the haters going.

Re: “'Move On'

That's not what I'm talking about. You don't see holocaust survivors going on and on about how traumatized they were by it, unless someone asks them, and then it's more to protect other people; to prevent it from happening again. I'm talking about people who have no concern for whether whatever happened to them happens to anyone else - their main concern is that we know what happened to them, and never forget it; never accidentally mention anything in conversation that might be even remotely associated with their negative experience; never do anything that might "trigger" them, lest they crumble before our very eyes.

And I'm talking about people who take on every injustice that's ever happened in the world, and take it upon themselves to be offended, as if it happened to them. It's great to have empathy, but Jesus, just because something's a problem in Pittsburgh, doesn't make it a problem here.

Re: “'Abject Failure'

I would say the "abject failures" would be ones who know what happened, and refuse to come forward. Law enforcement, nor the DA, nor the California Attorney General has the authority to torture confessions out of the perpetrators, or force witnesses to provide statements.

There is a cover-up here, but it is not on the part of the authorities, and it is not on the part of "systemic racists" in Humboldt County.
