Rantburg is back, bay-bee!
The horrific interregnum is over!

According to Gloria, Fred Pruitt is officially recovered from Covid-19, and so was released from the hospital to a rehab center. He is still very weak after nearly a month in the ICU that started shortly after Christmas. Current projections are that he will be in rehab for another 7-10 days, but he has his tablet, and was able to talk Gloria and her loyal assistant through restarting the server that went down just before we published the first set of articles nineteen days ago. Thank goodness he finished and debugged the changeover before all that happened!

So all the articles here are the news from January 3rd that were never seen by any except the moderators, just to give us something to take the edge off before properly sinking our teeth into it for tomorrow. Lots has happened, mostly in the U.S., but around the world the ripples from the Trump years continue to spread, thank goodness.
Whoop Whoop!
Welcome back!

#16  Glad Fred is recovering! My father is going through the same thing at the same time. Spent time in the VA and now in a nursing home rehab. The virus weakened him severely just like Fred. It is a long slow road back. I will say a prayer for you sir.

Glad to see Rantburg back on as well!

#8  Welcome back!
I finally dumped facebook (in disgust), Parler was -er- Parler'ed, and Rantburg was down. Pretty bleak. Things are looking up.

And best wishes for Fred!
