  1. So the brother of Rahm Emanuel would destroy the country in order to save the lives of the few remaining cases of the virus 12-18 months out from now. How do these guys get to actual positions of influence??
  2. Biden beats Bernie in Illinois 59% to 36%. That's about it for the communist.
  3. I read every post here, including yours unfortunately.
  4. I hope the hunkering down will be only "for a bit" and not another 4-6 months because that will absolutely kill this country. There will always be at least a small number of cases in a country this size. Who knows, we may go through this again next Fall if they don't get a safe and effective virus available by then. How about a permanent shutdown, 60-100 million unemployed, Dow Jones at 1,000 and lining up in our masks and gloves in government food lines staffed by the army, because that's coming if this goes on indefinitely. Not to mention millions of suicides and general chaos. We'd better think about how far we want to take this.
  5. Mayor Garcetti keeps ratcheting up the restrictions in L.A. He issued a new order that says any "essential business" can deny service to anyone not wearing a mask and demand that person leaves. Every day it's something new.
  6. The day that Willie Horton saved Al Kaline's life. Amazing story: https://www.vintagedetroit.com/blog/2015/05/27/the-day-willie-horton-saved-al-kalines-life/
  7. Trump approves of hydroxychloroquine. Everything OrangeManBad says or approves of is by definition bad. Hydroxychloroquine is bad.
  8. "Mr. Tiger" was 85. He played for 22 seasons with Detroit and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1980.
  9. Dr. Fauci was also unprepared, saying on January 21st that the virus was "not something the citizens of the United States should be worried about." But let's go get Trump.
  10. Is anyone here excited about today's huge stock rally? I'm not.
  11. Reporters are trying to derail the virus briefing with questions about the IG who Trump just fired, and the president goes off on an extended rant against him and the whistleblower. "I know all about the whistleblower and you all know about the whistleblower, and someone should sue his ass off!" Classic Trump.
  12. Just saw an article that says people in China are panic buying because they don't believe the party leadership. There is a widespread feeling that the situation there is still very dangerous. The idea that there are zero new cases and deaths there has always seemed absurd to me.
  13. from 2007: SHOULD WE BE READY FOR THE REEMERGENCE OF SARS? Coronaviruses are well known to undergo genetic recombination (375), which may lead to new genotypes and outbreaks. The presence of a large reservoir of SARS-CoV-like viruses in horseshoe bats, together with the culture of eating exotic mammals in southern China, is a time bomb. The possibility of the reemergence of SARS and other novel viruses from animals or laboratories and therefore the need for preparedness should not be ignored. SARS-CoV is highly capable of jumping interspecies barriers and is an excellent candidate as an emerging or reemerging pathogen. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2176051/
  14. The thought occurred to me immediately that millions of Chinese traveling for the Lunar New Year would spread this thing all over. We now know that the virus was probably among us for several months before January. By the way, the BBC article I linked to in the first post is no longer available.
  15. The Treasury should just cut her a check for $10 million if she'll agree to go away and not bother the country anymore. I mean, $10 million is pocket change at this point, and the benefits of her being gone would greatly outweigh the cost.
