These bastards recommend 1 meter or 3 ft distance between oneself and someone who is coughing or sneezing.  I'm not a doctor or an epidemiologist, but someone should report these fools for being stupid as a rock.

Sure, but report them to whom? The trustees are running the place.

They still check facts....but just to make sure they don't contradict the narrative being spun by Fox News.

I've paid zero direct attention to Fox News since before the start of the Bush Administration.  No rational and sane person could take that swill seriously for a minute!

Chump Change.  100K cases is still only 0.3% of the population.

I haven't watched any network TV (at least not on purpose) since roughly 2002......I can tell how bad it is just by the lies in the internet feeds. And the level of intellect those are aimed at influencing.....about the fourth grade level...which is why it's so effective.  Bernays for Dummies.

I would not br able to watch the actual programming without endangering  myself or others.

It's the rate of increase and the doubling rate which is shocking.

It's not shocking to me.  That's how the Exponential Function works.

J6P only grasps the raw numbers, and once it passes 5 Zeros he's lost.

J6P will also notice if thousand(s) of Americans are dying each day due to coronavirus. Not sure how Trump will talk his way out of that one especially if the economy is also tanking.

All the more reason for him to declare a national emergency and then to declare himself world emperor for life.  No need to hold an election, right?
