It's nearing midnight on the east coast. I'm not sure I really want to blog any more tonight but so much is going on, if I don't archive the headlines tonight, I will never catch up tomorrow.
For the most part, these headlines are from the online edition of The WSJ for the archives.
EVs: GM's Chevy Bolt recall casts shadow over EV push. Yes, like how long have "we" working on battery technology? Two hundred years?
Covid-19 surge in Malaysia: threatens to prolong global chip shortage. Bad news for auto manufacturers and car buyers. Really, really bad news.
Covid-19: EU ready to halt nonessential travel from the US.
Covid-19: twenty years from now, it will be interesting if we learn that the vaccine was the worst possible thing we could have done -- natural immunity is 29x more effective than the vaccine; vaccinated folks seem to be super-spreaders; and, it's starting to look like the vaccine, even less effective than the seasonal flu vaccine will now require booster shots, maybe as often as every six months, when perhaps we should not be vaccinating at all, if one watches the science. We are well beyond science, however, when it comes to Covid-19. It's not even educated vs non-educated, it's all politics now, it seems.
Hellfire: US used a special Hellfire missile in Afghanistan airstrike on Islamic State. A secret weapon until recently, the missile employs blades instead of explosives, to limit damage.
Afghanistan: back to civil war between the Taliban and ISIS.
Ed Asner, dead at 91.
Animated Over Sushi
Dinner for three: $67 before tip. Had we not bought "drinks," the bill before the tip would have been about $50, not bad for three folks. In addition to her sushi, Sophia enjoyed miso soup and edamame.
We wore masks into the restaurant but removed them, of course, when our entrees came.
