Dep't. Of Schadenfreude

"Just like the sniffles or the flu."

Gina Harkins / Washington Post:
A 45-year-old Kansas mayor needs a pacemaker after a long-haul covid fight: ‘I thought I was going to beat it’  —  Michelle De La Isla describes herself as one of the healthiest people she knows.  She is a biker and runner, so when she caught the coronavirus in January, the Topeka, Kan., mayor said she expected a speedy recovery.
I see stupid, ignorant people.

Ehh ... I read the article [ok, I speed-read it]. She got the vaxx at the first legal oppty. Just got unlucky. She's a Dem, so maybe we should give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she wasn't a covidiot ?
