CoViD-19: Officials Seek "Offramps" For Masks | Bike Coalition Launches SDCrashBot | Marines Plead Not Guilty For Felonious Zoo Incident |


Shaba, The Female African Elephant at San Diego Zoo (Taken 1.31.22)

I'm a broken record over here. Politicians are feeling the heat and while on the one hand it feels like they're just giving in and giving up by phasing out mask mandates, in a way I think they're just feeling like they've given everyone a chance who wants to get vaccinated, or parents to vax their kids, so if you get sick and die at this point, it is your problem, they just still can't say that part out loud. I'm not really on board with that line of thinking because I'm still seeing my dad frequently and would be devastated to carry COVID into their house because some unvaxxed and unmasked dickhead in Vons needs to have their freedom, but this is where we are globally. The idea that this will get the country back to any kind of normal seems completely absurd to me, however, because I can be pretty sure I won't be eating inside any restaurant anytime soon, and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way. The guess Super Bowl Sunday will show me just how much I stand alone in my convictions. 

I made myself get some San Diego Zoo sunshine today, but I still haven't gotten any information on what is going on with the Hippos and why they're off-habitat, especially since I thought they'd do something special for Amahle's 2nd birthday. I was happy to hear that the four marines were arraigned today for the original charges of felony vandalism, even though I'm sure there will be some plea agreement to lesser charges and restitution or some shit. 

I kinda started listings but I'm so zonked that I'm gonna have to get to them on Wednesday.

Stay safe out there.
