Many won't like this, but... If you want to truly "fast track" a vaccine, you have to take the process out of the hands of private industry. Not because private industry is "bad," but because in our society, it is (for better or worse) heavily influenced by its legal departments.
A publicly-developed and produced vaccine - yes, produced in factories operated by (gasp!) the federal government - administered by public health officers, can completely eliminate the legal/lawsuit barriers to rapid rollout. How? Easily. Said public agencies and officers are indemnified, by federal law, from lawsuits if the vaccine has negative side effects. No such lawsuits are permitted - period. Barrier is gone.
Now, will our attorney-dominated Congress enact such a program? Probably not; vested interests and all. In the abstract, it's not a complex problem to solve. But in a political realm, "simple" does not necessarily equate to "easy."
Comment on this thread vs. the other one. Merging them would be problematic - much more so than were we still using phpBB. (One of the tradeoffs - there are always tradeoffs.) I'm not inclined to even try. And realistically, coronavirus has become so much more our focus (seemingly, everybody's, now that Trump appears to have pulled his head out of the sand, or wherever it was) that a separate thread on "sports" isn't likely to stay differentiated. I suspect whatever I could do would have to be repeated multiple times.
I think I may have to just fire up the Roku, and start watching Phils' games from past seasons, assuming the archives are still working... If I turn off the "spoiler" options, I think it will hide results up front - and I certainly won't remember how individual games came out!
