Without quoting all the agonizing posts from Axel and MrV….

I am a graduate of COLUMBIA University


There is a city in Missouri named Columbia.


The freaking country you are alluding to is COLOMBIA.

Very common problem. I did not know you went to Columbia. I took my daughter to Columbia for a recruiting visit. She was a little overwhelmed with the city and the iron gate around the campus to keep Harlem out. She did like NYU but I was trying to steer her towards Princeton because that was the campus I liked.

I find it remarkable the first Columbia that pops into your head is in Missouri and not South Carolina.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The alternative would be what, exactly.

A constitutional crisis.
Options were
Accept the rebuke with good grace
Reject the rebuke politely explaining why.
Stomp off in a huff.
Do and say nothing.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Yes quite correct - over all the market did overreact, as it often does, and then eventually went to new all time highs.

As far as casinos and income, I understand that Venetian made more money than Wynn last quarter. Perhaps their policy of lowering room rates and bringing in a lower end crowd helped their bottom line, as much as it might have bothered Venetian's previous higher end customers.



I guess we will have to see how all of that comes out in the long run. I'd also assume that our definitions of, 'Lower end,' differ.

At any rate, thanks for checking out the article!

Hmmm, I take Losartan.

I stood overnight with a group of four and two days later everyone in the room discovered they had Covid EXCEPT ME!

I quarantined for two weeks, then got an antibody test and was negative so I am not guessing here.

Perhaps I was just lucky.


The unaccounted item in this discussion is natural immunity. I would be considered a high risk due to my age -- 80; my Type 2 diabetes, my stage 3 kidney failure, high blood pressure ( I take Losartin), and my weight, however, I have been remarkably resistant to most forms of communicable disease. I have been out in public without masking since the beginning. I am extremely confident in my natural immunity, and if most anyone were to examine the overall numbers of infections, a small fraction of populations have been stricken; a smaller number have been hospitalized; and a still smaller number have died. Guessing and speculation are just not helpful.

I believe the Spanish Flu, back in the day, killed 50 million. We are nowhere near those numbers.

i think it's already been said, but it's worth repeating....it's best to get vaccinated coz besides it reducing one's chances of being infected, if one is infected but vaccinated, one's reaction to the virus is generally much lower.
All persons reading my posts gamble at their own risk, as I do. I don't ordinarily dispute math. I may dispute math I don't understand, or if I think it's faulty. I am not a conspiracy theorist.

I absolutely agree, and I am fully vaccinated. Thank you for the affirmation.
