Does high viral load in vaccinated people have anything to do with ADE (Antibody-Dependent Enhancement) which could result in waning immunity?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced yesterday in its recent report that the high viral load in vaccinated people infected during the recent outbreak in Massachusetts demonstrated that “vaccinated people with breakthrough infections can spread the Delta variant” to others. The new CDC study found that the Massachussets COVID-19 outbreak “mostly infected the vaccinated,” with few needing hospitalization.

Joe Biden’s failing first crisis: Goodwin

How bad are things for Joe Biden? So bad that even The New York Times is getting restless. “Democrats scramble to save the federal eviction freeze as frustration with Biden mounts,” declared a Friday headline. The article said Biden waited until Thursday to ask Congress to act by Saturday, when the freeze expires, a move the Times said “took Democratic leadership by surprise.”

I'm a Democratic Socialist. But the DSA Has Lost Its Way | Opinion

Every few years, I think about joining the Democratic Socialists of America. And every few years, I end up leaving one of their events shaking my head in disappointment. More often than not, I end up in meetings that have nothing to do with wages, working conditions, and other issues that socialists are supposed to care about. One of the last times I gave DSA a chance, I ended up in a discussion about "Hamilton." The socialists debated whether Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical was "reactionary" or "liberatory." It felt like an Introduction to Cultural Studies course rather than an activist meeting. My impression was compounded by the fact that I was surrounded by college students. Personally, I would rather spend my time knocking on doors and talking to voters than discussing whether a theatrical production is progressive or not. I certainly have no interest in trying to cancel one that's not.

Hutchinson agrees with Fauci as Arkansas' COVID cases rise

There was a time when most everyone, and certainly every optimist, would have agreed that ‘tis better, always, to laugh than to cry. Even now, amid a viral surge that our best minds tell us was essentially beckoned by our dimmest and most cynical minds, gallows humor is easy to find and the chuckles are hard to resist.
