Speaking on the Westwood One radio show during a halftime interview at Super Bowl LV, Biden told host Jim Gray that Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga was “working very hard to be in a position to be able to safely open the games and have the games, and I think that has to be based on science.

“Whether or not it is safe for that to occur. My prayer is that it will be,” he added.

    I think this all depends on the global vaccine rate (which is going to highly reflect global inequity) and its effectiveness against the
    strain. Best case scenario, the world actually rises to the challenge, the next few weeks will be telling in this regard.

    And yet the ant-vac movement remains strong in in places were one would expect ‘science’ to retrain some authority; check this from Reuters:

      a planetary culture that rejects science eventually can not evolve forward – maybe we are on that planet


      We seldom consider how much of our lives we must render in return for some object we barely want, seldom need, buy only because it was put before us…And this is understandable given the workings of our system where without a job we perish, where if we don’t want a job and are happy to get by we are labeled irresponsible, non-contributing leeches on society. But if we hire a fleet of bulldozers, tear up half the countryside and build some monstrous factory, casino or mall, we are called entrepreneurs, job-creators, stalwarts of the community. Maybe we should all be shut away on some planet for the insane. Then again, maybe that is where we are.
