How many of these are positive cases are "breakthrough" cases, the TyRunt in SF "pushed" for everyone to be Vaxxed but a great many people are still getting the "Rona so what was the point??

Good point, I really enjoy people that are thinking logically, it brings with it HOPE and return to normalcy. You don’t see or know of anyone dying from covid because it’s part of every other illness, 1% just isn’t sounding alarms. Good one Amy…

What's your point?

Amy Christiansen- Most newspapers have a regular place for their obits, weekdays the SFNM generally has them towards the back of first section, facing the op ed page.

Was there a particular paper you were looking for?
