Oh Boy!, if this isn't a major battle between the Feds, and the state of Florida, nothing will be.  And Governor DeSantis is not going to put up with his state being locked down by a bunch of bureaucrats in DC. 

Quote:Gov. DeSantis Tells Biden: “Go Fuck Yourself”

.................DeSantis told Dr. Fauci he trusted his own state health authorities over financially incentivized federal officials.

“How much do you stand to earn from these vaccines, Dr. Fauci? (POW!)* And, Joe, if you continue with this course of action, I will authorize the state National Guard to protect the movement of Floridians,” DeSantis said.

“Address me as Mr. President or President Biden,” Biden said.

“I will not, and you can go fuck yourself,” DeSantis said before hanging up.

* - remember there being mention of Fauci actually standing to rake in lots of dollars over the vaccine's sales.

"To best ensure the success of mass
vaccination—whatever its hopedfor impact on transmission—and to
slow the emergence of new variants,
while avoiding general confinement,
governments need to integrate and
apply available measures in a way that
is much more targeted to different
generational groups. Different age
groups are not affected similarly by the
virus; from March to June, 2020, 96% of
additional deaths related to COVID-19
in Europe occurred in patients aged
older than 70 years.6,7
Crucially, the new approach should
be based on a social contract that
is clear and transparent, rooted in
available data, and applied with precision to its range of generational
targets. Under this social contract,
younger generations could accept the
constraint of prevention measures
(eg, masks, physical distancing) on
the condition that the older and more
vulnerable groups adopt not only these
measures, but also more specific steps
(eg, voluntary self-isolation according
to vulnerability criteria) to reduce
their risk of infection. Measures to
encourage adherence of vulnerable
groups to specific measures must be
promoted consistently and enforced
fairly. Implementation of such an
approach must be done sensitively and
in conjunction with the deployment of
vaccination across the various population targets, including all generations
of society.
Using stop-start general confinement
as the main response to the COVID-19
pandemic is no longer feasible. Though
attractive to many scientists, and a
default measure for political leaders fearing legal liability for slow or
indecisive national responses, its use
must be revisited, only to be used as a
last resort.
We scientists working against
COVID-19 must have the courage
to address those in power, who bear
ultimate responsibility for the policies
chosen and their consequences. If this
responsibility is shirked or delayed,
the inevitable day of reckoning might
be terrible.

I wonder if the same vote-scamming that the Left perfected for this election is used by coaches like Nick Saban (former MSU Coach) to grab the top prospects without getting caught for buying them, like many other top-ranked schools. Sabin has managed to dance on the edge of the sword for a long time without getting slapped down.

As a side note: it is pleasant to be able to watch college basketball, when so much has been shut down. Even with BB, there are gaps when schools had to sequester for a few weeks.

In all sports, recruiting is far more important than all other aspects of coaching. I remember the Fab Five. Possibly the top five recruits in the entire country all going to one school because an alumni civilian talked them into it. Since then, all such outside recruiting has supposedly been eliminated. The study of recruiting is fascinating. The SEC was the most penalized conference. Arizona State and SMU had the most cases (9 each). Coaches like Schembechler and Woody Hayes were always able to get great linemen and 5-star athletes. After awhile, the best recruiters develop an aura of success that draws the best recruits without stalking them. If the object is to play on Sunday, the number of past athletes that are selected from certain schools make the choice for the rcruits.

One of the Fab Five, Juwan Howard, is a new coach at UofM and has the kind of magnetism that adds to the legacy of the former coach, John Beilein, who sent many players to the pros. Since the Big Ten has the top conference, each game is great to watch. BB is even easier for recruiting to win big, because you only need five great players, not 24.

Location does matter for recruiting. For instance, Softball recruits like warm-weather states where there is more playing time. However; coaches do make a difference. Michigan is definitely cold-weather, yet the UofM coach makes it work. Head coach Carol Hutchins is in her 37th season at the helm of the University of Michigan softball program. The winningest coach in NCAA softball history.

Michigan State has a very fervent and loyal fan base. When Nick Saban left MSU to go to LSU, the fans hated him for abandoning his team. But, he's coached for 13 different teams (14 because he was at MSU twice), so it was never too shocking. He made his decisions and he's worth $60 million now.

Another component is the facilities. In college football, UofM has filled the 100,000+ Big House since Schembechler took the reins. The income from that venue funds all the other sports, as well. On the contrary, the old Basketball Arena in Ann Arbor was a real pit. I worked with former UM head coach, Brian Ellerbe, and he said the facilities was the worst detriment to recruiting he had.

The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

As daily deaths near 4,000, worst may lie ahead for Brazil

My wife and I received our second Phizer vaccination last week, Now I'm getting my second total knee replacement next week. Seven more weeks and I hope to be able to get back into shape again.

Sorry to hear about your knee replacements.  Most likely its in your genes, and got it from one of your parents.  Fortunately, I inherited my lack of arthritis from my Mom.  I do have some problems with my right knee, but that was from all of my parachute jumps/drops.  I twisted it when I jumped during a windy day.  I was trying to turn around before doing my "PLF"(parachute landing fall), but never completed it, so I landed side-ways and my knee got twisted around.

The interesting thing is that the small injuries I recieved jumping out of airplanes have caused me no trouble.  BUT that Evil "Bear Pit" that was part of the Ranger Obstacle Course caused me to screw up the 2nd digit on my right foot.  Eventually I had to have the joint modified, so now I am a "4 1/2" toed veteran.  I won't be doing that again.  S13

I have arthritis right throughout my spine, getting up in the morning is difficult, after a couple of hours of moving around it eases up. I had an x-ray of my cervical and thoracic spine last month; it showed an old stress fracture.

I don't know how much is heredity or how much was brought on by physical overuse. My father had bad knees, too. He was also a catcher on some advanced teams growing up and on the Army all-star team during WWII. He must have been pretty good to overcome being left-handed. His was the era of the flat pancake mitt with a little pocket, while mine was the soft flexible mitt and little padding. To catch 100 mph pitchers with no padding was just a matter of catching the pitch out front, just under the bat and pulling it back to coosh it without any noise. I often caught hot Sunday afternoon double-headers and always tried to beat the batter to first base to guard against overthrows. Most catchers have the same knee problems. Johnny Bench, Ivan Rodriguez, and Bill Freehan were my inspirations, and I guess Micky Cochran and Bill Dickey were more my Father's era.

That set the stage for my knees fragility, I guess, but I blew them out refereeing soccer. I thought it was a great way to stay in shape and get paid for running up to eight miles a game, sprinting, jogging, running backwards, sideways, and changing direction. I don't think I'll go back to reffing if I get my knees working again, but it sure would be nice to be able to.
