    Iím way behind but had to point and laugh. Skouger thinks COVID is killing 1 in a million people who are infected. Haha haha. What a moron.

    This is definitely the place to advertise...


    It will come back... My friend is close to retiring, so he's pretty well set. His son is buying his practice, tho. I mean look, people are converging on state capitals to protest getting their teeth whitened FFS!

    Hmm... Deconstructionists could try to penetrate this...black hole of meaning and history?

    Listened to some doctor/virologist dude on NPR yesterday during a risky grocery run. It didn't sound good on getting to the level of accurate testing needed to open things up. maybe by June they will be less than half way to where this doctor thinks things need to be on the testing level. Lots of bottle necks.
    Not enough people to run the tests.
    Not enough people perform the tests.
    Not enough people to read the tests.
    Not enough tests being produced. Don't ask about the vaccine thingy. That sounded depressing.

    Sounds like availability of reagents needed for the tests is also becoming a problem.

    Many of the early settlers were failures, religious kooks, and outcasts back in the Olde Country, for sure.

    that's wacist.

    I'd like to be able to validate some of the studies, but in the absence of reliable tests, all the squibbling about the data is m00t t0 m3.

    No, I did not. Explains the trash of the near south, I suppose.

    But I am familiar with the conscription of the lower classes to the military, especially ships. I suppose, the same thing, in a way. Maybe those "prisoners" sent to Virginia and the Chesapeake were sold a bill of goods, too, so that they would behave. You know, a new life in the new world, away from their misery back in Merry Old, and, if you're nice, you'll be well fed and given a daily allotment of drink and we'll let you beat the real prisoners, the slaves.

    Calling a dirty ass city dirty now qualifies as racist?
    What about SF far less diverse and every bit as disgusting?

    Meanwhile your lily white ass lives in the Far East self-proclaimed borough of Connecticut, bragging about your pittance of a retirement fund and your rich white neighbors. You've got your pulse on the inter city though keep it up.

    Speaking of pulses, I've never witnessed someone so proud of being chronically incorrect. I've made more than your net worth doing the inverse of your suggestions for stock and housing in the past year. It's pretty amazing.

    The greatest example of Darwinism in the human race to date? Low IQ people are gonna go about their business and die off in droves and those who use their brains are gonna continue to social distance and display self control? Isn't that what's happening here?

    A friends wife and her partners are trying to figure out how to keep their dental practice afloat long enough to come out the other side of this. Apparently it isn't a saleable asset on Long Island right now. :shrug:

    FIRE/ EMS UPDATE SW EDITION

    Sorry Mags, it's been a while, but it's been a little hectic lately, cause ya know, Covfefe.
    As of today, there are 1,971 confirmed positive cases in NM. 38,755 tested. 58 deaths.
    One of those confirmed cases was one of our FFs. Got the call on Sunday. He is doing well at the moment. We are working with the DOH to do contact tracing and testing. Not easy. Won't be the last.
    I spent a lot of time creating a flowchart about what to do in this exact eventuality; any mags in Fire/ EMS that want a copy let me know...
    Total call volume remains overall at about 12% lower than last year. IDK if the messaging of when to call 911 is working, or people are scared out of their minds to go to the Emergency Room these days. Prolly a little of both.
    On the PPE front, with the support of two local businesses, we are actually making our own disposable gowns now. The State was able to secure a large procurement of N95s from, wait for it........China. Crazy times.
    Our men and women continue to do an amazing job. I am truly in awe. It's humbling for sure.
    Stay at home order is set to expire on April 30th, but we were told to expect the Governor to extend that; for how long, IDK. I am not aware of any protests here in NM, yet......
    The reservations are continuing to get pounded. It is a grim fucking situation, for sure. There is a good NYT article about what's going on in the Navajo Nation, but I'm too tired to find the link.
    Personally, I have my good days, where I am optimistic that there is light at the end of the tunnel; then I have my bad ones where I am fucking exhausted and overwhelmed by the enormity of what's going on. I am trying not to overconsume the news, and spending as much as free time as I have working on my yard or walking the dogs.
    One of the things this pandemic has given me is some much needed perspective; I am fortunate to still be working, as is Mrs. Seano (from home. With twin teenage girls. That's a whole other post), but I know there are a shit ton of people really struggling right now, to include members of this board. I wish I could say or do something to make this shitty situation better; all I can say is, eventually, we will get through this and hopefully come out the other side better as a community, state, and nation....
    Hang in there mags, we will persevere. If I can help anyone here with anything (within reason, you kooks ), feel free to hit me up. Stay safe peeps. Stay home. Take care of each other. I will try and give another update sooner rather than later.
    Natty Dread, Diamond Joe, how you guys doin??????

    ETA- Updated numbers just released from NMDOH- 2,072 cases, 65 deaths......

    Unfortunately, no. Just more carriers and therefore, spread. Well, the very cavalier will go down in greater numbers, so, yeah, maybe.
