As a matter of fact, on Friday I tried to register for the Lancaster County mass-vaccination site, and I was successful. To my surprise, on Saturday I got an e-mail that said I could schedule an appointment! I tried to do it online, but it didn't work. I more-than-half suspect there is a problem because the same e-mail address is used for my dad and for me.


I'm sure that's what happened, because it happened with my dad.  He tried to have a friend register my mom, but the friend registered my dad with my mom's email address, so when I tried to register mom with her email, I got an error message.  I had to register my mom with my dad's email, and then it went through.

They still have the cartoon captions on the next-to-last page with the crossword on the last page.

Oh, I know, I saw those. But they're not in as prominent a place, and if they do feel like phasing them out that would be a subtler way to do it.

Then I feel lucky -- mine is today, at my regular clinic, 15 minutes away. I know a number of people who have traveled to other parts of the state, 100+ miles, to get theirs.

Last evening there was a report on our local NBC affiliate that over in Camden County, New Jersey, vaccination appointments already stretch all the way into October.

No, but I can see why they wanted to switch it up. Those cartoon captions were getting pretty lame.

I've probably said this, but one reason hard they're hard to produce good captions for is that the pictures are of absurd situations. Whereas most professional cartoons in the magazine show people walking down the street or sitting in their living room talking. I can see why these would be hard for amateurs to caption, but often they have to resort to kind of silly stretches.

I recommend the knitting story in the March 29 issue. It includes the origin story of the pussyhats.  :D
