Not that anyone cares.

I and all of my friends -- and most folks I know -- care.  We tend to think he should be quarantined to prevent the spread of his mental illness into social and political life.  Some recommend building a wall, and maybe having Mexico and Canada pay for it. The wall would surround the White House, preventing him from leaving while also keeping people away as not to become infected, influenced or befuddled by the mental illness inside the wall.

Hell, you stand up a Go Fund Me and I'll help pay for it.

The Silver Lining of the COVID-Caused Recession is Supra-Economic

https://www.resilience.org/stories/2020-03-25/the-silver-lining-of-the-covid-caused-recession-is-supra-economic/

Really provocative article. Love the concept of "illth" as opposed to "wealth."
Holders of large portfolios will not be amused.

Nah, I don't want to contend with all of those television news helicopters hovering over my house while ground reporters swarm around my little private casita.  Someone else can play that role. I'm sure someone will stand up!

Pandemic News - Ya'll can go back to fucking off, nothing to see here...

As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.

The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak. Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria. They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

New Mexico and Virginia schools are closing for the entire remainder of the school year, which does not mean just through the summer, but into the fall and beyond.  Schools will set up online learning programs.

My intuitive hunch is that the decision of these two states (and there may be other states who have also made this decision already. I just don't know), will be much like the decision of Canada not to attend the Olympics on its 2020 schedule, but to try it again next year, instead. In simpler terms, my best guess is that all of the USA schools will close for the remainder of the school year.

You heard it from me first. Watch the news and see if my almost flawless predictions about coronavirus impacts proves true.

My daughter's school is having their faculty teach online now. Not sure how it's working out yet...They just started. It sounds difficult for teachers who teach multiple grades.....she teaches GT classes and science at different middle school ages.
