CoVID-19: Omicron Detected In San Diego | Boosters Approved For Older Teens | "Hope Is Not A Strategy" | Court Rejects TFG's Efforts To Bury 1/6 Docs |


It was so nice to experience rain in San Diego and it was really exciting to hear that the Sierras are getting a dump of snow, too. Meteorologists are predicting another big storm on Tuesday so hopefully that is true. Like many, I would love to just see the rainiest San Diego this winter.

Which brings up Dr. Mike Ryan. If you've never watched or listened to him, do yourself a favor. He's been the most straight-up at the World Health Organization and in remarks this week said, "hope is not a strategy." We have the tools, we know what to do, and yet we can't get our shit together -- and I'm talking from the local level all the way up to the global level. It's gross and awful and sometimes I think about it too much and it's overwhelming so then I just have to not think of it at all and remember a strategy that has thus far worked for our family: act as if you and everyone around you is unvaccinated. We wear masks, know our exits, dodge big groups. We monitor our temperatures and blood oxygen, we try to limit time indoors with strangers, we keep air circulating, and even when it's freezing. 

I'm looking forward to this weekend because I need to catch up with work without getting interrupted with something else. I'll try to get to listings at some point tomorrow, but for now I have a newsletter to write. If you're thinking about going to the Casbah for NYE, get your tickets soon because it is really close to being sold out. 

Stay safe out there.
