it’s over

It’s a good doctor who can explain things. I’ve been trying to do that with Mr. Corona for almost 2 years. But Dr. Ted Noel, a retired anesthesiologist/intensivist knocked it out of the park today (1). I’ve been emphasizing the high rate of errors coronavirus makes in replicating its RNA genome as source of all the mutations we’re seeing. But I totally forgot about recombination, which is almost certainly what gave us the friendly monster we call Omicron. Let’s welcome him, and catch him if we get a chance. It’s a way more effective vaxx than those science fair experiments they’re still trying to foist upon us, which not only don’t work, but greatly increase the risk for catching Omicron. And there’s that VAERS thing (2). Booster schmooster!

I’ve called on Bobby McFerrin several times in the course of this thing. But his message to us applies now more than ever (3). Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
