Well, our for-profit health care system is cruel and horrible and needs to be changed; that was clear long before COVID. What we are seeing here, though, is hospitals full of people dying who chose not to be vaccinated. I dunno--which is harder? Changing a terrible country policy, or changing a bunch of people's minds? The two things are inextricably connected.

It’s close to 70% in our overall population but much much lower percentages in certain states. This situation lends to a highly efficient virus for getting ppl sick and ppl dying.

I currently have MVP Status which was gifted to me pre covid and it’ll expire some time in 2022. I doubt alaska will extend again if I don’t hit the mileage requirements. I have a few trips planned and want to get an airlines CC. At the moment I do not have one. What airline should I go with? I fly west coast a lot with some ski resort destination across the US. Im leaning towards Delta but wanted to get some thoughts. Also does anyone in here have more than one airline CC?
