Many of our local music scenes are now open and unmasked. These include the Brock Music circle, St Clements Church in North Vancouver, and events at the ANZA Club. It is to be hoped that the people who make policy at Music off Main and the VFSS will realize that more and more folks have had enough already. This is a tough job but I think they are up to it.
I have occasionally express wonderment at the reasons the Covid panic. Here are some ideas from experts I respect.
Robert Malone’s thoughts on the pandemic. https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/rewriting-history-just-another-day
You may wonder what “Brain Respiration” has to do with the Covid doom but this article by my favorite statistician shows the tenuous connection between belief and evidence in a well designed well controlled experiment.
Is this about population control?
The idiocracy has attacked Dr. Bonnie Henry for remarks about hand washing. Hand washing has a long and respectable track record unlike masks and Dr. Henry has been the voice of reason in British Columbia these past years. While I sometimes think she has gone too far with the restrictions she has the expertise and the responsibility for the public health. I continue to respect and support her efforts.

When I appear at public functions I respect the rules. If I can’t bear the rules, I leave. I try not to attend events that require masks. It’s hard to breath thru a mask and even more difficult to sing. Zoom will have to do.
Vaccinations appear to have some value for geezers such as me. I have an up to date BC passport. That means I can join the family in a restaurant and the folks from Brock House in their tent.
These are the issues of the day. The are close to home. They affect my life.
