Three conversations I have had with three different people within the past 16 hours.
1) A couple I know (mid-50s) in Maine: both fully vaccinated and boosted. She gets covid for the second time, he gets for the first time. He is hospitalized with arrythmia.
2) A friend of mine (conservative) has a conversation with a liberal neighbor on her street. That liberal neighbor comments that "Yeah, it's weird. Two people in my biking group have deveoloped arrythmias during the past year. Weird!" These are highly physically fit 50 somethings.
3) An hour ago, I'm in an ice cream shop getting an ice cream. The people behind the counter laughing nervously about the fact that TWICE in the past week, people have been in the shop and dropped, out cold.
Shit is acceleratingly out of control.
