It happens when rage gets the best of us. And it happens because Twitter is so available, so ready to serve, so easy to throw out a rant without thinking about the big picture.
As expected, Twitter denizens, in less than kindly fashion, asked Keith if he seriously wants Texans to die over something their governor did–which might, in fact, hasten their deaths, anyway?
Keith, who uses Twitter mainly to find homes for at-risk dogs, still hasn’t addressed his ill-advised tweet. I waited to publish this, hoping he would and I could include it, but it’s 13 hours later and still not a peep.
So on to brighter news:
The inimitable Dolly Parton got her first Moderna shot and delighted us with her take on it. (A reminder that Dolly donated a million dollars last April
to Vanderbilt University to help fund their vaccine program. VU lab directors say the donation allowed their R&D to be stepped up by a factor of 10. Without it we might still not have access to the Moderna vaccine.)
