Nice trip report. An Iceland trip has been on my to-do list as well. I would have thought that ten days just in Reykjavik is a bit much though. Did you not get bored or run out of things to see/do?

The Brewers lost 12 of their last 18 games to finish the season. Meanwhile, their opponent, the Braves, won 12 of their final 14.

I really wanted to declare boosters were the reason for Israel's case drop. But as a professional data analyst, I can only say "not sure, it looks like it really helped." It certainly helped severe cases. I look forward to someone inventing a vaccine that really slows the spread. (I am of...Jump to post

What is undermined? If you read the actual study it states that the vaccines help, even on top of better odds.

The situation looks to be better now but not too long ago the fares between DTW and MKE were astronomical (approaching $400 for a one-way IIRC).

"Breakthrough" cases of Covid-19 infection are very rare and many are asymptomatic. I see no reason why vaccinated folks can't go back to living their lives normally.

While NK has recently added MKE-LAX nonstop service, there would probably be enough demand for MKE-LAX nonstop service on a 2nd airline if demand were at pre-pandemic levels as the PDEW of MKE-LAX/BUR/LGB/SNA/ONT was 304 passengers/day in Q3 2019.

That depends on how much breeding ground you want the Virus to have to stumble on a mutation that the vaccines don´t protect against and start all over, lock down and all.
