The Simpsons And The American Man: Bart Simpson Is The American Man

Some episodes of the Simpsons are more entertaining than others.  It is a series that I sort of liked, but never went out of my way to watch.

These days, I'm not sure how to define "The American Man".   We are a divided culture.  We are a mix of old and new, but the culture as a whole feels aimless.

Fwd: New Rule: Make America Grind Again | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

This is so crude I am limiting whom I share it with, but it is an interesting commentary on masculinity.

Best wishes,

How To Argue With Someone Who Won’t Listen

New Rule: Stand By Your Brand | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

Many good laughs.  More crude than usual.

COVID update

It is helpful to see where we are at.  

We have gone from 1 out of 11 people being infected to roughly 1 out of 15.  Still, that seems high to me.  The number of new cases is surprisingly low.  The number of deaths is approaching a million, but the daily deaths have dropped quite a bit.

I think that we got lucky with the Omicron variant.  I've been saying that it is like a different disease because it has slightly different symptoms.  Reportedly it is ten times more infectious but ten times less deadly.  It is like comparing cowpox to smallpox, where cowpox acts as a natural vaccine to smallpox.
