    America land of free thought and opportunity

    Sad but true. I lived in the US for many years. Many USans have binary belief systems: their political party can do no wrong, the other party can do no right. Either someone is Christian or someone is going to hell. Either someone is a person of colour or someone is a racist. Either someone watches FOX News or CNN or MSNBC. Nobody could possibly be still reading newspapers and current affairs, either print or online. Nobody could possibly not own a television set. Either someone is a Mac user or a Windows user. Linux users aren't numerous enough to be catered to. Every data collection, every point of surveillance, every humiliation is "for your protection." Either you are on a commoditized, commercialized social media platform where your data is harvested for marketing purposes and your images subjected to shoddy AI algorithms in pass/fail content moderation, or you don't exist. U.S. oncologists and nurses told me in March 2020, when it was revealed my husband had terminal cancer and I suggested to him he be treated in the country that we had moved to six months earlier, that Canada would catch up to the US in Covid-19 cases. Maybe they were right, maybe in August 2021 after 18 months of enduring the pandemic Canada caught up to the US June 2020 percentages of active cases and deaths. It can't be that I would want to avoid border lineups or closures or ill-trained border patrol people putting us through interrogation making us late for chemotherapy, or that I understood I'd be a widow in six months, they had to take the "oh? Our country/treatment isn't good enough for you?" attitude. Try telling a rural American that a white family can live peaceably in a Black-majority city for a lifetime without requiring a gun for protection. Either the income disparity is wonderful, or someone is a Communist. If you don't say anything when someone relates at lunch or breaktime highlights from a Comedy Central evening news commentary show they assume you must be a political opponent, not that a permanent resident might think it's best to not comment as she can't vote.

    Hares Death Pool 2021

    Yes. The Hares Death Pool points were awarded from the notable's expiry date number of days from January 1, so I wrote 98 for scores. I counted 98 days from 1 Jan to 9 April. Maranne's death date is 12 April 2021, 98+3 (101). Thus, 98 and 101 are the correct SCORES in the Hares Death Pool 2021 with which to update my TALLY, unless more of my entries drop before the next update. Did you blip over the word 'scores'? Why else would you remind us Prince Philip was 99?

    Hares Death Pool 2021

    Thanks for the intermittent updates, An Fear Beag. Next update, please add my scores for Prince Philip (98), and André Maranne (101) to my tally.
