For those of you who haven’t yet found GomerBlog, today is your lucky day.  It’s like The Onion, but for medical topics.  The other day I saw a piece there that completely captured a moment I recently experienced.

Race for a Vaccine

It’s hard to categorize what I’m feeling right now regrading COVID-19.  But at root, I think it’s a race, and I’m not sure how it’s going to play out (especially since I’ve stopped predicting things). On the one hand, we see spiking cases and deaths. At the original peak (in July) we were seeing ~70,000 new cases/day.  Now, that number…
