Interesting opinion piece in Salon. I haven't finished reading it yet, but the premise sets the stage for revolution.

https://www.salon.com/2020/03/15/late-stage-capitalism-primed-us-for-this-pandemic/

It's no secret income/wealth inequality has exploded in the past 20-30 years (give or take). History shows what often happens when the system reaches its tipping point. Not pretty.

Thanks.  What's driving some of my reading focus is years of guilt for having a collection of books I've never made it through (literally hundreds).  They came with my last house (purchased from the family who'd owned the home since 1875...in 1995 only 5 people had ever lived there including the 93-year-old woman who sold us the house, and who we helped move into a retirement home after living with us for 2 weeks (another story for another day)).  They include first and old editions of books like US Grant's autobiography, 15 or so volumes of "the complete Dickens", and a timely instruction guide named "What can a woman do"

Embarrassingly, I have several years' worth of non-stop reading if necessary.

Take a class at Harvard...or MIT...or Someplace else:   EdX

So here is one from Berkeley that starts today.  The Foundations of Happiness at Work

There are over 45,000 people signed up for it.  It's free ($200 if you want a certificate), and will take you 2 to 3 hours per week for 4 weeks. 

In my house, our college daughter is on-line for the rest of the semester.  She is taking an English class that her mother and I may "audit" for the rest of the semester since her classes will be taking place at my house.  The class is small (a dozen students), so we are going to get approval from the professor before we join (and we'll promise to be quiet).  Our daughter is totally fine with it, as she knows she'll be the smartest person in the room. 

I am taking this event to try and force myself to read more.  TV is crap right now, there are no sports, the news is myopically stressful...so I'm going to try and read more in both volume and variety.

If you like spy novels I very highly recommend Alan Furst's first two books, "Dark Star" and "Night Soldiers". Also Le Carre's "A Perfect Spy." All 3 as good as serious literature. 

Phillip Kerr's novels about the German detective Bernie Gunther are brilliant especially the first 3, collectively known as "Berlin Noir." A Netflix series called "Babylon Berlin" has the same dark feel and takes place around the same time in Berlin.

If you like brighter and morally straightforward books check out Patrick O'Brian's books about British naval Captain Jack Aubrey and Dr. Stephen Maturin. They take place during the times of Napoleon. The first is called "Master and Commander". It's Dense and you may need a companion book called "A Sea of Words"but it's worth it if you like historical novels with strong character development. There are like 20 books in the series so if you like the first you could probably ride out there coronavirus storm inside those books. They're like CS Forester but better.

Also look for a movie adaptation of some of the books in the series called "Master and Commander: Far Side of the World" starring Russell Crowe.

Again our company is doing a very good job with this imo.  We have retinal temperature screenings for any of the essential employees as they enter the building.  Nothing is perfect, but every little bit helps.{#Meditate}

Germany’s Health Ministry confirmed a report in newspaper Welt am Sonntag, which said President Donald Trump had offered funds to lure the company CureVac to the United States.

Funny but I do expect an increase in domestic violence, drug overdoses, and anxiety-induced heart attacks.

Not, that I think there is a better course of action but the experts are kind of flying blind here.

Such a sensational claim!  If true, Trump should be kicked out of office, if not arrested!

But wait.  There are no consequences of significance when a news outlet either falsely reports a story, or just plain does a poor job with sourcing.

Me, I'll be waiting for the retractions published on page 32, in tiny print.

Not true. The Welt story was wrong. But Business Insider, Reuters and others went with it anyway despite not having their own sources. Now everyone is back peddling.

Just another day where #fakenews never ends.  You folks should be smarter by now and not fall for explosive tripe like this.  But you're not.   Why is that, exactly?  Maybe you like clicking on  those groovy phishing emails too.
