Bonobo -- maybe Loretta -- Taking in The San Diego Sun (Taken 2.17.22)

Today was a good day. The weather was perfect, the San Diego Zoo was a little crowded in anticipation of Presidents' Weekend but not too bad in my favorite spots, and Darren went shopping this morning so we had an amazing dinner at home before we had to go to Chula Vista to help my dad. Now I'm trying to get work done so I can kick back for the weekend, but I think Darren is falling asleep before I can catch up with some bevvies. 

I did watch Governor Newsom and Dr. Ghaly and others in their press conference today and it sounded good in practice but we'll see how it translates. I did like Newsom's response to a question about what about parents who don't want their kids in masks and are fed up after seeing so many people at massive events without them?  or something to that effect to which he came back with our state statistics of high adult vaccination rates, events being outdoors, and only 29% of kids 5-11 are vaccinated (23% in San Diego, as I highlighted yesterday. So while he can't exactly use the phrasing I would and do, he basically said you don't get it both ways...vaccinate or masks (and ideally both until transmission is lower). 

As for the Casbah, masks are still required for unvaccinated, and "highly recommended" for everyone else when not drinking, and we're continuing our vaccine verification or negative PCR withing 72 hours of shows. So there's that. And speaking of...I have a newsletter to write. 

Stay safe out there.
