More places are opening up, in some states they're opening up as their Covid~19 numbers are climbing. Meanwhile, in New York State infection rates have dropped to where they had been in late November, before the post-Thanksgiving surge.

Pickles of the North talked about getting her second Covid~19 vaccination and the drama around it.

We talked about what fools the Republicans are being by railing against precautions to prevent the spread of a potentially deadly disease.

We talked about the statistics for people who've gotten vaccinated being really excellent. The percentage of people who've gotten vaccinated but who got Covid-19 anyway is only 0.008%.

We reported that, "On Wednesday March 31st, 2021, the Pacifica National Board reached an agreement with the FJC Foundation, the provider of a $3.1 million dollar loan, to extend the maturity date of the loan for 18 months."

We talked about Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz' interesting lifestyle and it's possibly imminent conclusion.

We talked a little bit about former child actor  Lee Aaker who died of a stroke on April 1. He used to play the character Rusty on the TV show Rin-Tin-Tin in the '50s.
