Even Canadians Think Americans Are Toxic

I would like to think that the American separation might end with the arrival of a vaccine, but why would it? Already the anti-vaxxers are mobilizing. There is no cure for being too stupid to take medicine. For the foreseeable future, there will be one world for non-Americans and another for Americans.

Israeli gov’t approves: Three-week lockdown beginning Friday

An Israeli flag blows in the wind from an elevated view of the Western Wall. Jewish orthodox believers read the Torah and pray facing the Western Wall, also known as Wailing Wall or Kotel in Old City in Jerusalem, Israel. It is small segment of the structure which originally composed the western retaining wall of the Second Jewish Temple atop the hill known as the Temple Mount to Jews and Christians.

The country is heading into a three-week nearly total lockdown on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the government determined on Sunday after more than seven hours of heated debate. The closure will go into effect at 2 p.m. on Friday and last through Simchat Torah on October 9.
