Forgot to post this here over the holiday. Apologies!

Short week for Thanksgiving, even though I’m not traveling. COVID, flu, RSV, and even our dear old pal the common cold will be. Stay healthy out there.

Coming Distractions

Read the comic on Patreon.

I caught COVID last Friday. I’m vaxed, boosted, and I don’t go unmasked indoors. My best contact tracing puts me getting it at the bodega from an unmasked patron or employee.

I woke up Saturday morning with a painful sore throat, and immediately took a home test that turned positive as soon as the drop hit the strip. It quickly mellowed to a very minor cough over the weekend and early in the week.

I feel fine now and I’m about to take a test to see if I’m clear to leave home office quarantine. I’m not keen on getting reinfected or long-COVID, so watching everyone carry on like the pandemic’s over is insanity-inducing. Especially as boosters wane and variants keep multiplying.

Waiting 45 days to see a new movie is no problem for me.

Summer Book Blowout

Read the comic on Patreon.

Another mass shooting at an elementary school, with cops bungling the response and possibly making the body count of small children even higher. There are some other topics in here. Who cares.

The Senate’s already on vacation for the long weekend, hoping this all blows over and they can keep giving COVID funds to cops and continuing business as usual. Every normal person seems equal parts pissed and hopeless.

Try to find a way to enjoy a part of the unofficial start of summer!

Re-Re-Updated CDC Guidance

Read the comic on Patreon.

President Biden had his big July 4th “COVID’s Over!” blowout and really can’t be bothered with us plebes not wanting to get sick. That’s why the policy’s been “Let’r RIP!” since the Delta wave interrupted our summer fun. The economy is the only thing he has to crow about, so now essential employees are being shoved back to work while contagious and symptomatic.

Re-Updated CDC Guidance

Read the comic on Patreon.

I did the first version of this cartoon almost exactly three months ago, when the CDC said the vaccinated could unmask indoors, which relied on the honor system. In America. Where a third of the country won’t even agree the pandemic exists.

It was a bad idea then, and it took the Delta Variant to become the predominant strain for them to finally reverse their decision. The people who need to follow that advice the most won’t, and now here we are.

Maybe we’ll get lucky and I won’t be drawing a third in this series for Halloween, but I doubt it.

Dr. Trump’s Pandemic Prescription

Read the comic on Patreon.

The coronavirus and its subsequent freakout has spread further since I drew this comic. Having a functional government as it spreads would certainly help ease some of the anxiety.

The best advice I can give is to wash your hands, cough/sneeze into your elbow, and don’t be a racist. Chinatowns across the country have been suffering since the first reports came out. I’m selfishly enjoying the lack of crowds at dim-sum, but I can’t support those restaurants all on my own.
