‘Dooya think?’

Time to play another exciting game of “Dooya think.”

Dooya think that A … the coronavirus now infecting the entire world is the result of a release — accidental or otherwise — from a Wuhan laboratory that was engaged in studying similar viruses (cbsnews.com, bbc.com, seattle times.com, english.alarabiya.net, livescience.com) or B … some esoteric convoluted confluence of exotic animals in a nearby Chinese “wet” market as claimed by China (china.huanqiu.com) and repeated ad nauseum in the media? (nationalgeographic.com, euronews.com, fortune.com, forbes.com)

Dooya think that A … the record numbers of illegal immigrants streaming undeterred across our southern borders reflects an “open border situation” (washington post.com) or B … that the southern border of the USA “is closed ” and “secure” as per Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’s repeated and emphatic assertions? (thehill.com, fox29.com, washingtonpost.com)

Dooya think that A … as some contend, President Biden’s proposed policies will adversely impact “middle class” household income (bloomberg.com, nsjonline.com, forbes.com) or B … per the president, households making less than $400 thousand annually will be unaffected. (wsj.com)

Dooya think that Hunter Biden A … was appointed to the board of a Ukrainian gas company – Burisma – because of his family relationships (reuters.com) or B … he had the education, experience, and temperament to provide the appropriate board oversite. (vox.com, cnn.com, the atlantic.com)

Dooya think that A … President Biden was aware of Hunter’s close relationship with Burisma (nypost.com, foxnews.com) or B … never spoke with him regarding any of Hunter’s his business dealings. (thedailybeast.com)

If you answered all A’s in these questions, you may be right. Of course, if you answered with B’s you may also be right. That is if your B’s really meant BS …

Please return flower baskets

Good news: The city’s flower baskets are up. Better news: With lots of water and nutrients they’ll be big and beautiful.

Sad news: When they were in the process of being hung, three of the baskets were lifted from the ground. The baskets were not there for the taking. They were waiting to be hung.

If you lifted one of the baskets, please return to the Sequim High School greenhouse. You know they are easily recognized. Thanks for your help.
