Most of the uber rich do invest in worthy causes, but the rocket ships get the press hype. Actually, I think its a good thing for the future of space flight for the rich to get involved with rocketry.
That’s probably why the Repubs are getting on the vaccine band wagon since they realize that it’s their GQP supporters that make up a sizable portion of the unvaccinated.
The larger the pool of unvaccinated, the greater the chance of a mutation being developed that might not be combated by the the current vaccines. This might make some of us already vaxxed have to take a booster. It seems that we will always have Covid virus with us and yearly vaccines, like that of influenza, will be required. Masking, too, might be a something we might have to get used to. Masking does cut down on other respiratory diseases which is a good byproduct.
Fidel needed the support of the USSR to make his state work. Without that, his state began to crumble. And the US sanctions and legal restrictions on money being sent back to Cuba from relatives living in the US didn’t help.
As rational as we Dems are, during the Dump years, I have considered, just considered, mind you, that maybe taking up arms might be an option to take against the GQP extreme right.

Yes, when I heard that some of our athletes were unvaccinated, I was flabbergasted. You would think that being an athlete would presuppose your desire to take every avenue to give yourself an advantage in your sport. Being put in quarantine would definitely put a stop to your chances of medaling in your sport.
You mean, “throne”?
It’s too bad that we don’t celebrate the ratification of the US Constitution, another pivotal time in our history. I was just reminded of a celebration in SC of Carolina Day, which commemorates the battle of Sullivan’s Island on June 26, 1776. It is still celebrated in Charleston, SC which commemorates the heroic efforts of the troops of Gen. Moultrie and the hasty construction of a fort on Sullivan Island out of Palmetto logs. Those logs proved to be very useful in defending against several British warships and their cannon.
The people who make the lemonade at church must be on a diet as they seem to leave out the sugar, too.
I’m going on my sixth year with my $100 steel frame pool. It’s only 14’ across and 36" deep but it’s a great cool down on a hot day. And I’ve figured out a number of ways of getting in some laps for exercise.
