OK, some positive things

Delta may be quite contagious, *but* if we didn’t have as many vaccinated folks as we do have, my god, it would be SO much worse. Yes, it seems you can easily transmit even if you’re vaccinated and get a breakthrough infection, but the breakthrough infections aren’t hitting the entire vaccinated population by any stretch of the imagination.

When breakthrough infections happen, they get spun up big time and it *seems* like every other person is getting a breakthrough infection, but if they were – the numbers would be SO much worse than they are now.

Plus, Delta seems to burn itself out reasonably fast:

So yes, things suck, but they suck a lot less than they could, and dammit, that’s something.
