    I think Abbott would do the right thing if it weren't for Trump making that extremely difficult for him politically. At this point that's impossible given all the FUD that's been sown.

    I agree, which is why I put him in the following the way the minions flow category--he seems to WANT to do the right thing, but gets peer pressured into going with the MAGA flow.

    United Parcel Service Inc. is building two giant freezer farms capable of super-cooling millions of vials of a Covid-19 vaccine, preparing for the day when it will need to deliver the medicine at high speed across the globe.

    The facilities, under construction in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Netherlands, near UPS air hubs, will house a total of 600 deep-freezers that can each hold 48,000 vials of vaccine at temperatures as low as -80 Celsius (-112 Fahrenheit). That’s on par with some of the coldest temperatures in Antarctica.

    Some schools reopened this past week in Mississippi and Georgia and there are already cases of children with COVID-19.

    They should cancel them all. No amateurs should be out there risking that much and with far less stringent safety measures and testing that we are seeing fail in the pros.
