You win some, you lose some

On one hand, the Biden administration is doing exactly what any sane, responsible government should do – helping its citizens in a tough time. Thank you!

Biden to announce Merck will help make Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine. The agreement between the two major pharmaceutical companies could help speed up vaccinations across the country.

On the other hand, not so much.

Biden removes mention of Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day.

Huh? Political correctness is out of control. Lincoln statues are being defaced, some educational institutions are removing Lincoln’s and Washington’s names from their buildings. From the article on the evil Dr. Seuss, “The move comes as Dr. Seuss’ work has generated controversy following a study highlighting a lack of diversity among the author’s characters.”

Seriously? This is what people are worried about? A lack of diversity among The Grinch, The Whos, The Cat in the Hat? Little Jessica Who? Maybe I’m having an old man’s “get off my lawn” moment, but this is ridiculous. Get a life, folks. Worry about something that matters; there’s plenty to choose from. Democracy under attack. Voter’s rights. Climate change. Mass animal extinctions. Human trafficking. Hungry kids in America and across the planet. Just pick one.

Said in a calmer way, the current inane trend toward judging historical figures by our moral standards and then removing them from history records is dumb and dangerous. Those who cannot learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.
