Barring the unforeseen, I'll get my first vaccine shot today. Watch this space for any signs of mutation -- I can be the canary in this coal mine.
For the record, I gave up on Donald Trump's GOP quite some time ago (still decades later than I did the Dems), and made my disdain public in the wake of the storming of the U. S. Capitol on 6 January. I've been a libertarian (small-l variety) since I encountered the idea in Robert A. Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress when I read it while in High School. So you can't blame that on the vaccine.
Internet connectivity is coming and going this morning, as it did all day yesterday,* so I'll stop here.
* We're on copper back to the local switch, old-fashioned dialtone-and-DC phone service with Internet riding atop it. AT&T loathes metallic pairs and would love to drop them -- but they can't; they're stuck with them thanks to regulations. So they maintain the lines only after failure, and hope customers will give up.
