Police in Quebec seek man for punching nurse over wife's COVID-19 shotPolice in the Canadian province of Quebec are searching for a man they suspect of punching a nurse in the face for giving his wife a COVID-19 vaccine without his consent, a police spokesman said on Wednesday. The man confronted the female nurse on Monday morning in the office of a pharmacy in the city of Sherbrooke, about 155 kilometers (96 miles) southeast of Montreal, where she was assigned to administer vaccines, police spokesman Martin Carrier said by phone. 'Our suspect went directly into the office and began to yell at the nurse,' Carrier said. Yahoo Very bad journalism!! You can't explain his reaction if it was in his wife's defense and opposition, if it was a religious objections. He shouldn't assault someone but a forced shot can be considered the same.

Emmy Producers React To Seth Rogen's 'Deeply Frustrating' Remarks On COVID-19 SafetySpeaking to Variety, producers Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart said the 'Knocked Up' star was fully aware of the night's logistics ahead of time. I think Seth was commenting on the glaring double standard that would be noticed by us common people. It's only cool to go out and live life again when celebrities say so. But Seth DID attend, invalidating his protest. So he's not as badass as he thinks he is. Why doesn't the 'Elite' have to wear masks and social distance? [Asking for a Nation?] Without mask (and with new glasses, bow tie, and haircut), Seth is hard to recognize.
