    The seat belt analogy is a pretty bad one, the risks there are pretty much born by the person not wearing a seatbelt. There may be societal costs but they are pretty diffuse, they aren't much like a pandemic at all.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Well, affirmative evasive maneuvers are hard to accomplish without a decent seatbelt and seat setup. If you are not wearing your belt properly, with your seat properly adjusted, you are in danger of losing control of your vehicle in circumstances that you would have little trouble with otherwise.

    Jane, we found that Chewy is, for us, a reliable source for cat food. Just got our shipment.

    We did that here too. Will not be in Texas for the majority of the year so will try to get enough to fill our small freezer for the time we are there. Costco, Sprouts and HEB will probably be our main suppliers??? I would much prefer local farmers but don't think we have enough room (or time to consume all) to go that route unfortunately.

    I mentioned that to my friend, who apparently didn't get her Amazon order in before the product disappeared. Word is Chewy is getting limited, too.

    Cat food has become hard to find in Phoenix. I stocked up on cat food recently in Tucson when I was down there for my deceased friend's Celebration of Life. Rob

    Her cat, a ginger tom fondly known as The Prince, will be displeased if his preferred flavor of pate' becomes unavailable.

    My cat only understands assigning blame, and wreaking vengeance.

    Sneer at freedom all you want. I kind of like it, and am not particularly interested in surrendering it over some small chance something bad might happen if people are allowed to do dumb things.

    There are plenty of diseases that could become more lethal in the future, and even if we forced every American to be vaxxed and masked there is still the rest of the planet to consider as far as what might develop.
