Fully Vaccinated Elderly Black Man Dies from COVID-19

Colin Powell died on October 18th, 2021 of complications resulting from the COVID-19 virus, according to his family. He was 84 years old.

Mr. Powell, a retired four-star Army general who served in both South Vietnam and Korea, held various positions in Federal government, ultimately serving under Republican President George W. Bush as the 65th United States Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005 as America’s first black Secretary of State. To date he was also the only person of color to serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

At the time of his death Mr. Powell, as a former high-ranking government official, was receiving medical care at the Walter Reed National Medical Center, the nation’s largest hospital and one of the best medical facilities in the United States.

Mr. Powell contracted COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated against the virus. However, he already had at least three characteristics placing him in the high-risk category for COVID-19 related death: Black, over 80 years old, and at least three known previous medical conditions (he survived prostate cancer in 2003, had multiple myeloma, a cancer of white plasma cells which can interfere with production of natural antibodies, and was battling Parkinson’s disease).

Data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that while between 1.8 and 3.4 percent of all Americans will die from the COVID-19 virus, elderly patients in their 80′s and above have between a 10 to 27 percent chance of dying regardless of pre-existing health status. In addition, COVID-19 deaths are twice as likely among black people compared to Caucasian people. Finally, medical evidence strongly suggests over 90% of all deaths from COVID-19, regardless of age, involve patients with one or more preexisting medical conditions: The number of people dying from the COVID-19 virus alone is claimed to be as low as 6% of those infected.

Although he was fully vaccinated, his family did not state which vaccine he received or when it was given. It’s known the initial level of effectiveness provided by a COVID-19 vaccine depends on the exact vaccine received, the level is highest among healthy people, vaccine effectiveness decreases dramatically within six months, and vaccines may not be effective against new strains of the virus.

Condolences and sympathy are sent to his family and close friends.

I’m a Random Ramblin’ Man! …Red Sox Edition!

Well, it’s that time again: Post season Major League baseball. Visitors to my site already know I’m a big Red Sox fan and the old saying goes during a successful season of at most 174 games (162 regular season plus up to 12 post season games) a baseball fan is cold twice: Once at the start of the season and again during the post season. With the Red Sox now in post season play it’s time to ramble…and, give the team my regards.
  • The Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees – the so-called “Evil Empire – in the American League Wild Card Game by a score of 6-2. As far as I’m concerned the 2021 Red Sox season is already a success.

The New(er) Colossus

Recently I wondered what the Statue of Liberty would look like if Liberals redesigned it, and later realized New York Harbor is not listed as a port of entry for legal immigration into the United States.

However, with over 1,800,000 illegal aliens expected to cross Mexico’s border with the United States during 2021 alone I wondered how the poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty – called “The New Colossus“,

written by Emma Lazarus 1883 and added to the Statue in 1903 – might be modified to reflect America’s most popular illegal port of entry:

Joe Biden* – A Man with a Border Plan!

Candidate Biden says keeping illegal aliens in Mexico while they are being processed for possible entry into the United States is “inhumane“, then later (p)Resident Biden* quietly re-instates former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy after both the Supreme Court and an Appeals Court tell him Trump’s policy was, in fact, legal:
