    It appears to be Heart disease with 659,041 deaths followed by Cancer with 599,601 deaths. CDC - Leading causes of death (other then COVID) However last year was the most deadly for gun deaths. "In 2020, gun violence killed nearly 20,000 Americans, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive, more than any other year in at least two decades. An additional 24,000 people died by suicide with a gun." 2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades I will add that COVID was the third leading cause of death in the USA last year. Covid was the third leading cause of

    Do you understand that the ruling has been politicized and has no regard for truth. If you don't understand that, then it's probably to complex for you to grasp.
  4. I like it for keeping a pulse on our community, our end of the county, the local and regional sailing community, and keeping in contact with old childhood friends and classmates, as well as service buddies, Commands and Battalion Groups, workmates and most importantly family - as well as Facetiming with family, friends, Vets, and SAers. Ignore the stupid schitt, questionable sources,the Trumpers, anti-vaxers and anti-maskers.

  6. My friend of 45 years and retired work bud and his wife got COVID about six weeks ago, at a party at his brother-in-law's place. His BIL was coughing fairly good, my old bud called me and told me about his BIL being sick. I told him to get the heck out of there quick - but they stayed. Besides my bud and his wife getting infected, others became infected too. His unvaccinated BIL died in the hospital several weeks later. My bud and his wife went to the same hospital, tested positive and were sent home, because the hospital was full of COVID patients. My bud fought the COVID at home fo
  7. Experts suggest the U.S. needs a 90% vaccination rate to reach herd immunity, given delta’s keen ability to spread. French scientists warn 95 percent may need to be vaccinated to stop Delta variant
  8. From a public health perspective, everyone should be vaccinated. Vaccination, mask wearing, hand washing and effective social distancing are our primary tools to fight COVID, and being required to show proof of vaccination, should not only be required for work, but in all public venues. The USA has purchased a billion and a half vaccinations to be distributed to nations that can't afford and is asking other wealthy nations and do there part to help the the poor nations get vaccinated. This is like a forest fire, full steam ahead. And wherever there’s human wood to burn, it’ll do it. W

    Fact check: Are migrants causing the spike in COVID cases? There’s no evidence to support the theory that immigrants are the primary cause of increasing COVID cases. National trends show spikes in communities far from the border, and North Carolina data shows that most cases are among non-hispanics. We rate their claims False. USA Today Fact check: Coronavirus variants didn't come from migrants at border Migrants face COVID-19 restrictions Even if the coronavirus variants had started circulating in Central America before the U.S., it's unlikely migrants would have play

  11. Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap County doing well getting vaccinated. It appears more intelligent/affluent/Democrat areas in our county are doing better then the rest of the county and most of the state of Washington. Kisap county COVID demographics.

  14. Sorry for your loss and as others said above the loss never goes away. One just has to endure till pain of the loss numbs somewhat. Lost my Mom back in '78, a hard core alcoholic, a stroke took her when she was 46, way to young to go - if she'd just put the bottle down. As seen below - The alcoholism was gripping her hard, not long before she passed. A tough and heart wrenching loss none-the-less. My Grandfather, her father passed a few weeks later - both shook me and my siblings to our core, and shook my Grandma so much more - but she and we, endured with the pain easing somewhat ov
