    ^^thanks for that. Prophetic for sure. And affecting. I didn't even know he was sick until now. Guy's a trooper though, he's proved that before. Get better Mr. Prine.

    Nice job by Colbert too.

    Another failure of leadership. Train wreck.
    ^^Bears repeating.

    3M: @ 35M masks/month, full production since January, touted their 100M orders from Asia on their website (and I think to CNBC) in February. Pence visited and they raised production to 420M/yr. Yes, there are 12 months in that year. How many masks are they selling within the US...?

    Friend of mine is a Blackhawk pilot and flight medic with Homeland Defense. Dispatched to New Orleans yesterday.
    In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).

    Geographic isolation outside the major cities might help but otherwise pretty grim if it gets a grip.

    Today 6:30 p.m.: Days after helping hundreds of University of Georgia students move out of their dorms for the semester, a housing employee was diagnosed with COVID-19.

    Jesus, the grid and everything. Gotta love China; looks like the opening frame of a Devo video. But I guess it's working for them, so kudos.

    Just looked at the latest numbers. Holy fuck, Westchester and Rockland counties, NY, have a case rate that now exceeds 1% of their populations, double the rate of NYC, even. Yikes.

    She comes home today/tomorrow (to my brothers in Sacramento). Sort of a home hospice situation.

    Not many of us, myself included, take the time to feel gratitude for not being sick and in an ICU bed. Vibes to her and you and your family as you all navigate this.

    But strangely there is still a fair bit of traffic moving around. I went out twice yesterday, first to the bank to use the drive up atm, through the busy part of town and into Westchester there were lots of people out doing all sorts of things. Not like it would normally be because most biz's are closed but there are 2 supermarkets, gas stations, etc. so if it's going to be crowded anywhere that's where it would be.

    Then we took a ride around Putnam county and there was a bit less traffic but still more than I expected. The 2 local gun stores are closed, sold out of everything the signs in the windows said. Most of the beer stores are closed and some liquor stores too, the last and only local bike shop in the county was busy! The bike trail that runs through the whole area was packed and the parking overflowed for blocks into the surrounding neighborhoods I went through the 3 major towns in the county and there is a general sense of doom and gloom that I don't see in pics of other places but the biggest takeaway is how few people are wearing masks and how closely they're packed in some areas.

    Had the opposite reaction in Costco yesterday.

    Where did all these shoppers find masks and gloves?

    And yet they’re buying food stocked by workers with no ppe.

    Haven’t shopped in two weeks. Things are different this time. At least they had meat for the freezer.

    But my wife demanded I wash my meat sack before entering the house.

    So Americans call it entering the house these days. I thought it was called having Sex, or making love.
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.
