Finally, a COVID death worthy of mention on this site . . . unfortunately.

    We have lost former Secretary of State, National Security Advisor, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General, Colin Powell.

    No matter what you think of his political leanings, and how they shifted during his life, he was a great man, and a patriot.

    Finally, a COVID death worthy of mention on this site . . . unfortunately.

    "The trailblazing public servant was 84 years old and had multiple myeloma, a blood cancer in which malignant plasma cells overtake the space usually reserved for normal plasma cells that fight off infections.

    His cancer may have left him particularly susceptible: Not only does multiple myeloma rob the body of its ability to resist infections, but it also can interfere with a vaccine's efficacy. Research on multiple myeloma patients published in the journal Nature in July found that only 45 percent developed an “adequate response” to Covid mRNA vaccines.

    General Powell was 84 with an active blood cancer that would produce the same result had he caught pneumonia (which currently kills as many people as COVID). Of course, the MSM can't resist playing up the COVID angle for maximum political effect. That's the tragedy here...not COVID.

    If Democrats really cared as much as they say they do, they would care about all the people dying from pneumonia...or influenza, or staff infections, etc. None of those other diseases help them politically...just like vaccinating illegal immigrants doesn't help them politically.
