Remington advises the vaccinated -- including our podcasters, editorial page editor Scott Milfred and cartoonist Phil Hands, who got their second Pfizer shots two weeks ago -- to live their lives while still being reasonably careful. Remington even recommends Milfred and Hands go out for beers and says they can resume podcasting in the newspaper's small studio, rather than via Zoom.

Remington address the changing science, online disinformation, a flare-up in Michigan, and young people going back to school.
