Remember the old song: "Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone?"
My question: Oh where, oh where has my covid shot gone?" Corsicana is apparently is awash in "no-information available." That may seem backwards / contradictory - -
Being awashed in the lack of information / awash in Nothing. This past week, off and on, I have called phone numbers that I could find. Nobody seems to know nuthin'. Or if somebody does know sumpin', he is hiding it from folks, the common everyday public.
Examples: I called the Corsicana health dept - phone number in the book - all I get is a fax machine. You'd think, over time, somebody would notice that. You'd think.
I called the Navarro Regional Hospital - nice lady operator - she know nuthin'. Based upon what I think she said, people (just regular folks) are calling her and giving her information about where the covid shots are NOT available.
Our CVS does not have a phone number in the book - found it on the Net. Their prerecorded message says that they have no shots available.
But, we see people lined up in cars on TV - all getting shots. Every newscast, we see more images of cars lining up in some vacant lot - people getting shots.
I called my doctor's office - his phone person transferred our call to the hospital without telling me what she was doing. Yep, she didn't want to talk about it.
I called the Navarro County health dept. they have a lot of numbers to press. I finally just picked one that sounded a bit like "seniors" and got his machine. I left a message asking them to help the public to learn what was happening.
I called the local paper. Talked to a guy. He passed info on to the Editor (based upon reading the paper, I didn't know anyone was editing that thing). I suggested that a small daily column be dedicated to information on getting the shots. He thought that seemed like a good idea. Am I crazy here or shouldn't a journalist think about this on his own? Just wonderin'?
I do have the county judge's personal email. I wounder if he could stir things up. Bothering a judge does seem like a wrong way to do this.
So, what did I learn today. Nobody knows what is going on and if they do, they are not telling the general public -- and, I am the general public.
Now, let's see, where is the Governor's home phone number again?
