Makes sense to me.

If this makes no sense at face value, then I doubt the explanation would, too.  Or that it would be accepted.

I work with the public putting my face within inches of others when taking measurements and touching their heads and handling their glasses which more often than not are filthy, if not disgusting.  A large part of our customer base travels internationally for either work or fun.  P is arriving home from SoCal Friday morning after spending time with her daughter whose cancer is out of control.  More than likely the last time she will ever she her alive again.  She changes planes at SFO which is not a good place to be right now.

As someone who belongs to the group with the highest chance of this thing being fatal (age, COPD and cancer of the immune system for openers), I have been thinking about it.  P is not much better off than me with age and asthma.  Can't ignore it.  I hope it's quick and doesn't hurt very much should I get it.

That said, we grew up during the height of the Cold War when everyday was one hiccup away from Nuclear Annihilation.  You still had to get up everyday and go to school and take care of business.  This time is very little different from then in terms of having to go on with life regardless of any threats to being alive.  I still have to work until I drop regardless of this or anything else that can take me out.

And so it goes ...  Party on Garth !!!

I am flying to Massachusetts (via Providence) on Tuesday.
I fly frequently but have not since early Feb.  It will be interesting to experience.

"Just watch your local news," said Santelli. "There's your catalyst."

"All I know is, I think about how the world would be if you tried to quarantine everybody because of the generic-type flu," Santelli continued. "Now, I'm not saying this is the generic-type flu—but maybe we'd be just better off if we gave it to everybody."

"And then in a month, it would be over," Santelli continued, "because the mortality rate of this probably isn't going to be any different if we did it that way than the long-term picture, but the difference is we're wreaking havoc on global and domestic economies.
Just imagine the profits from (uncollected) pensions! Cull the herd!

To be like Trump or not to be. That's not the question.
The appropriate question would be why you support someone who does politicize a virus?

One finger pointing outward leaves four backatcha.

Seriously, when it comes down to it, the public discourse on just this one topic is based almost entirely on non-verifiable/verified information from 'authoritative' sources. Have you got a link to any research, by a member of the public, who has tracked down any report, in any medium, to a warm (or even cooling) body? Until you have even one such report, everything you hear, read, view is second-hand, taken on trust and faith. Do you think it a good idea to be in, and to remain in, such a dependant relationship?
