Last Tuesday Motes, For This Year

Really ? :  With rich countries snapping up supplies of COVID-19 vaccines, some parts of the world may have to rely on Chinese-developed shots to try to conquer the outbreak. The question: “Will they work?” I got a bigger question than that, why would you want to take the chance? And why would any country “have to rely on Chinese-developed shots”? If a guy shoots me in the back, I really won’t trust him giving me first aid.

BAWA: The United States on Wednesday called for transparency and an end to violence after Russia said it had dispatched 300 “military instructors” to the Central African Republic ahead of elections. Russia said Tuesday that it dispatched the military instructors on the request of the government following a purported coup attempt. The government in Bangui said that Rwandan forces were also assisting after three powerful rebel groups merged and started to advance on the capital.  At least seven people were killed in a Boko Haram attack on the majority-Christian village of Pemi in Nigeria (Bloody Africa Wins Again)

Just asking: Why isn’t the “president-elect” demanding an investigation of the election? Seems to me, he appears to be satisfied with a dark cloud hanging over his presidency.

Check the record: Everyone seems up in arms about President Trumps “pardons and commutations”. Obama issued 1,715 commutations and 212 pardons. Trump has issued less than 150.  

And like every year: On Christmas Day I sat and watched “Donavan’s Reef”, John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Cesar Romero, and Jacqueline Malouf. A Christmas tradition at my house. Along with the traditional Christmas ham, baked in pineapple juice and white wine. It was goooood.

I agree: U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday expressed disappointment the world is not eating enough greens. To that end, he declared 2021 as the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. I agree, I just have a different definition of “fruits” and “vegetables”.
