  1. It must've taken you a great act of will power to leave that donut area kjh.
  2. Duke is also the antithesis of a progressive utility from what I've seen.
  3. And we can't build nice buildings, eat outside, close streets, or anything else either. Not aimed at any specific person. Despite kjh (Mr booster) this is a really depressing place to hang out you want urbanism.
  4. When your president is arguably inciting people to break state law or even riot it's a tough spot. It's hard to see how this ends in any optimal fashion unless we just get lucky with immunity or weather or mutations or ??
  5. ^^ well we know anyone who wants a test gets one. So the problem is there is no demand? What crap.
  6. Another great segment on testing from PBS tonight. It's not long. We need to hold our leadership accountable for not trying to simplify this too greatly. It's a real test of leadership and a tough balancing act.
  7. Kind of beating a dead horse here I know but this was entirely predictable and it makes me angry. USA TODAY: 'Medication I can't live without': Lupus patients are struggling to get hydroxychloroquine diverted for COVID-19. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/04/18/hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus-creates-shortage-lupus-drug/5129896002/ This is good news though: TechCrunch: GM delivers first ventilators under 30,000-unit government contract. https://techcrunch.com/2020/04/17/gm-delivers-first-ventilators-under-30000-unit-government-contract/
  8. Hard to keep up with all the broken promises. This is a laugher though. As a former general aviation pilot and owner I just hate these companies from Cessna on up. Buried costs, poor warranty hidden everywhere. A naive individual, or ...., whatever Trump is are cannon fodder for these guys. Then there is the incredible waste and corruption in military procurement mixed in on top. Gets worse every year. This cost overrun will continue to balloon.

  9. The Hill: The Memo: Culture war hits coronavirus crisis | TheHill. https://thehill.com/homenews/the-memo/493446-the-memo-culture-war-hits-coronavirus-crisis I don't completely dismiss the alternate origins theories either but the science being discussed by true experts without political sticks in the fire do indicate animal transmission. This has been a huge concern a long time, has happened many times in the past, and will happen again. Why the sudden focus on other possibilities? We need to explore all possibilities as time goes on but I think this present push is mainly political in nature as this article mentions. There is a lot of blame the GOP needs to get to work laying on others. They really don't believe in governing only retaining their power so this is all they can do well. No time like the present, society be damned. They have the perfect leadership team to pull that off.

Business Insider: Dr. Fauci throws cold water on conspiracy theory that coronavirus escaped a Chinese lab - Business Insider. https://www.businessinsider.com/fauci-throws-cold-water-conspiracy-theory-coronavirus-escaped-chinese-lab-2020-4 This guy Cotton is especially scary to me because he sometimes actually comes across as intelligent.
  11. If you can find 5 minutes I thought this was an excellent piece on testing issues. It kind of feeds into my question on how you build things in a service economy and what a "new deal" would look like. I suggest skipping the prior interview with Pence. That man can spend a long time saying absolutely *nothing*.
  12. Geeze, I've tried so hard not to. But, later Gman dude.
  13. Yeah but we don't even know if having antibodies means immunity yet either. I hope it does but not known. I mean of course you have "some" antibodies after a virus and of course covid19 is a virus. I think everyone knew there were a lot more mild cases not showing up because of our lack of testing and there have been a lot of (pretty small) studies showing this. I read this a while ago and I don't see what this study does to move things along though. The comment of it being flu or not is the WTH moment for me though.
