Curmudgeon’s Corner: The Problem We’ve Got

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s corner the main topic, as it so often has been over the last year and a half, is the pandemic. Current trends, how to encourage more vaccination, all that sort of thing. But there are a lot of smaller topics too. Everything from nick names to infrastructure week (again) to how some MAGA folks think they will get Trump back well before Election 2024 to various other things in between. Have fun!
