COVID-19: Why it could affect public health for years to come

Vacines notwithstanding, health care experts expect major long-term consequences

By Lilo Stainton, NJSpotlight

A year after officials reported the first case of COVID-19 in New Jersey, the numbers of cases, deaths and hospitalizations tied to the virus are declining. Demand continues to outpace supply for coronavirus vaccines, but hundreds of thousands of doses are expected to ship in coming weeks and the state’s goal of immunizing 4.7 million people by this summer seems possible.

“There is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it.” – William James

A regrettable development in American culture is that racism is being obscured by false claims of racism.  Both destroy their targets.

If a racist is one of the worst things a person can be, then falsely claiming someone is a racist is one of the worst things you can do to a person.  We are in a current whirlwind of Cancel Culture and instant ostracization by social media. Those who are careless labeling others as racist can easily ruin the life of someone who had been careful not to be one. No one should have such power over the reputation of others, but in these odd times where the Internet is forever, everyone does.

This just happened in Red Bank, New Jersey.

Emergency food assistance expected to stay at record levels for two years or more

By John Hurdle, NJSpotlight

Twelve months of surging demand for emergency food assistance from pandemic-hit workers made for a grueling and unprecedented year for New Jersey’s food banks.

H.R. 1 weakens safeguards against fraud in election law

Congressman Chris Smith

 Excerpts of remarks by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ)

                                          In the House of Representatives—March 3, 2021

Mr. Speaker, the precious right to vote in free and fair elections at all levels in the United States will be seriously jeopardized if H.R. 1 becomes law.

Under an egregiously false façade of reform, the legislation consolidates and conveys new sweeping powers to regulate elections to bureaucrats in the federal government and nullifies all existing state laws requiring valid identification before either registering to vote or casting a ballot.

The Star Ledger is running a story about the fate of Tillie (I’d add a puke emoji after saying his name if I knew how).

If you can’t get past the paywall, the Star Ledger story is about the non-art cartoon mural of a psycho named Tillie that was once on the outside wall of the old Palace Amusements, knocked down long ago.
