Supply Change, Reprise 0

Clogged up supply chains around the world have garnered much publicity, especially as the time for holiday giving approaches. At the San Francisco Chronicle, Christopher S. Tang takes a look at conflux of factors why we may not be able exactly what we want exactly when we want it oh poor wittle us-ens. A snippet:

The pandemic changed the lifestyle of many Americans, who switched to a hybrid work schedule and started spending more time at home. That fueled surging demand for items like office chairs, printers, gym equipment, and home appliances as consumer demand shifted from service to goods. But just as demand skyrocketed, COVID-19 related safety policies made it harder for suppliers to deliver stuff where it needed to go. Logistics experts have reported that extensive quarantine requirements and partial port closures in China, along with lockdowns at factories in Indonesia and Vietnam, significantly hampered the production of goods for the U.S. market.

At the Orlando Sentinel, Jacob V. Stuart muses on the internal contradictions of Florida’s mandate against mandates. Here’s a bit (emphasis added):

In so doing (enacting the anti-mandate mandate–ed.), they have advanced a paradoxical contradiction: the leaders of today’s Republican Party favor the imposition of strict mandates to eliminate potential existing mandates. It is totally deranged conduct, most often associated with immature, single-issue thinkers. It is certainly not the work product of a group of thoughtful leaders, nor the welcomed discovery of an assembly of community trustees.

On the same topic, Jeffrey Hanna, writing at The Roanoke Times, tries to make sense of the plethora of pathological passengers peopling the planes. I don’t think he can, because it’s clearly senseless, but follow the link and decide for yourself.

Dis Coarse Discourse, Vaccine Nation Dept. 0

Republicans now have Big Bird in their sights:

Over the weekend, Big Bird tweeted that he had gotten the COVID-19 jab in a clear attempt to promote the shot now available to children ages 5 to 11.

President Joe Biden prompted reacted to Big Bird’s tweet, saying, “Good on ya, @BigBird. Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep your whole neighborhood safe.”

Reaction from the anti-vaccine crowd led by Sen. Ted Cruz was swift, saying Big Bird is spreading government propaganda while others called it “brainwashing children.”
