One hundred twenty-nine thousand Americans are dead, Bill.
so the flu

Not the flu... nothing like the flu...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

My quick summary of the pandemic.

1. The Right and Left wingnuts even view pandemics through a partisan lense.
2. All levels of government shockingly ill prepared and wasted trillions of tax dollars.
3. All levels of people are shockingly ill prepared financially
4. The media is so partisan that the quality of reporting we get is worse than third world countries
5.Virtually no one understands how to use data and statistical analysis is non existent
6.Too many people only think about themselves
7. It’s all about propping up the assets of the rich (  :) ;D :) ;D)

In other words...nothing new to see here. Carry on.

This is refreshing, like a sip of a cold sparkling water.

Take away the word "virus" and this sounds kinda like business as usual in the US...

The above post makes it look like “ so the flu” was part of my post. It was not.

I get myself into enough trouble. I don’t need any help.

In light of our new normal, if anyone is looking to upgrade their mask situation we are very pleased with the ones we received from jaanuu.

I can't comment on how partisan the US media is, but my wife and I finally got sick of watching BBC every morning as it was nothing more than fluff pieces about old guys walking around to raise money for the NHS and stuff like that.

Anyway, we have been watching Al Jazeera and France 24 for a over a month now and actually know more about what is going on around the world (including back home - Florida features regularly). And they don't talk to you like you're an idiot. So win-win.

Florida daily total up to 10,109 cases. Local hospitalization numbers have gone way up as well.

Vanity Fair saying Convention in JAX may be cancelled.  Doesn't seem very firm though.

I think it will be cancelled. Who would even want to go to that?

To console himself, Trump still has moments of magical thinking. “He says the polls are all fake,” a Republican in touch with Trump told me. But the bad news keeps coming. This week, Jacksonville, Florida—where Trump moved the Republican National Convention so he could hold a 15,000-person rally next month—mandated that people wear masks indoors to slow the explosion of COVID-19 cases. According to a Republican working on the convention, the campaign is now preparing to cancel the event so that Trump doesn’t suffer another Tulsa–like humiliation. “They probably won’t have it,” the source said. “It’s not going to be the soft landing Trump wanted.”

Neither the Trump campaign nor the White House responded to requests for comment.

I'm pretty sure Lenny Curry would attend.

Curry is probably secretly hoping it is cancelled.
