Like Guinea Pigs to the Slaughter

A few years ago, a friend of mine found himself in Peru in a smart restaurant. Looking at the menu, he was surprised to find “guinea pig” offered as an entree. Certain that it would not resemble a roasted rat, in the same way that one does not expect one’s steak to look like a dead cow, he ordered this speciality. When it finally arrived, he looked down at his plate and was shocked to see the roasted animal, split down its spine, with its mouth wide open, staring him in the eye. Like a guinea pig to the slaughter.

Well, today I feel like a guinea pig to the slaughter.

We are blessed to have not one but three (or more) potential vaccines available to protect us from Covid — from Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. However, all is not what it seems.

When one looks at the testing time for these vaccines, they have been approved after 2 months of human trials, rather than the 10-15 years........
