Can you tell us anything about the late, great Hal Willner? I know you have worked with him.

Are you going to take the Covid vaccine? I’ve heard horror stories about spiritualists taking it and saying their soul feels dead. I don’t know what to believe anymore.

What is your opinion of Ivermectin as a prophylactic against Covid?
SANDRA, PORTLAND, USA
Dear Patrick, Nicholas and Sandra,
Hal Willner was a great man with a beautiful soul. He died of Covid-19 on the evening of April 7th, 2020. His death was sudden and shocking and a deep blow to us all. If there had been a vaccine available at that time Hal may still be alive today.
I had my second jab on 26th May and I can now live in this embattled world knowing that if I catch Covid there is little chance of me dying from it. I feel privileged to live in an age where our scientists are able to develop a vaccine to help combat a pandemic, and to do it at such an astonishing speed. It feels to me that this is a momentous time in medical history.
As for the prophylactic use of Ivermectin, I know little about this other than the evidence for its effectiveness appears speculative. The efficacy of the vaccine, however, is fact, and I feel I can move safely through the world with more than dog worming pills and an inflated belief in my own immune system for protection.
As for the soul, last time I checked mine seemed to be doing fine. I suspect the soul is robust enough to stand its ground against a remedy that will save so many lives. But who really knows about matters of the soul?
What I do know is that I miss Hal very much. I am looking forward to the time when the world emerges from its derangement and Hal’s friends can come together, in love, to pay tribute to this remarkable man – in the way that he himself did to many before him. I pray we won’t have to wait too long.
