SIGBAP January 2021

I know someone (an emergency room physician) who got the shot the first day it was available in Minnesota.  AFAIK I don't know anybody else who has received one.

But, we've already talked about Covid.  Now let's talk politics!  Will the U.S. have a new emperor?  Will white supremacists save the nation from socialism?

Who:    Anyone who likes hanging out with Beverage and Pizza Pros and evaluating coup potential.
When:   Wednesday January 20, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
Where:  Wherever you have a good Internet connection

This Google Meet seems to be working OK, but I hope that President Trump puts an end to this virus so we can meet in the real world next time.  He's president so he can do that, right?

Otherwise it's looking like we might get a vaccine early next year, assuming that once one (or more) gets developed, that lots of doses can be made quickly.
