Ed Yong is a science writer at the Atlantic, so you might think that he’d take a relatively rational approach to the omicron variant.


Um, Ed, you still could’ve had a party this year.

Of course we have agency. We have the agency to decide to get vaccinated or not get vaccinated.

We have the agency to have a freakin’ birthday party if we want to.

We’re not sitting on the edges of our seats waiting for Yong’s 2022 contributions to the scientific and medical discourse. Hard pass.

Would anyone have even gone to his party? He sounds like a real Debbie Downer.

Who among us?

That’s Ed.

Ed might want to talk to someone about this.

Maybe they’ll even send him a card.

Hopefully his friends will find someone less insufferable to hang out with.
