People have short memories. Here is a picture of the havoc Delta variant wreaked in India a few months ago. We are not far from this in the US if the vaccination rates don't increase. People here defending not taking vaccines and not wearing masks just amazes me. Folks here are devoid of basic thinking let alone critical thinking.

To be fair, the lack of central tracking with our privatized healthcare system has also meant our Covid death count is lower than expected based on total mortality and known factors. Covid is the most likely explanation of the gap. But, point taken on the foolishness of the anti-vaccine crowd. (I consider a personal “no” decision to be anti-vaccine.)

Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?
