Angels had own issue with testing today. Per sources, testers did not show. Players did saliva tests on their own; unclear if/how tests were shipped to lab in Utah. But Monday workout was pushed back from 9 am PT to noon, seemingly to give lab more time to determine results.

I know of 3 nursing homes/retirement villages here in Illinois with 20+ fatalities each.

What's interesting is that the demographics for fatal cases skew younger in the U.S. than anywhere in Europe.  As far as I know there haven't been any major studies attempting to explain why (widespread lack of adequate health insurance is the most obvious reason, on paper), but if more people were aware of that maybe younger Americans wouldn't behave with reckless stupidity in such huge numbers.

Some people are just plain stubborn stupid.  Some are oblivious stupid.  Most have just gotten sloppy.  Like that article from Mrs. Freeman in another topic.  People who worked so hard and were so careful have gotten sloppy in either their own behavior or getting caught off guard by the behavior of others.  In my case, we have a caregiver come a couple times a week to do a little cleaning and to do exercises with my invalid wife.  For six weeks we didn't have her come.  In June she went and got tested and was negative so she started coming again sporadically.  The other day after she got here and was working with my wife that she and her husband had traveled to a city to meet another couple in a restaurant that was surprisingly crowded.  At this point, I said WHOA and we cut the visit short.   Many people who test negative then forget that the guy they pass in the hall on the way out of the testing area could sneeze on them and bingo.

My sister had to have a blood test the other day at the local hospital.  She said the waiting room was packed, she was the only one wearing a mask, and one guy was coughing his head off.  As I've mentioned I've been the only one wearing a mask in the local grocery and there are a dozen adults with their kids!  How do you risk your kids?

Older people like myself are saying, we can only hope for a vaccine because they Trumpers and morons and Teenagers are going to kill us otherwise.

The problem is that without hard border controls at state lines, the stupidity of some states impacts all states.  That's why a national policy would have been so crucial.

I don't think there's any "if" about it, it's "when".  I wish that weren't the case but given what we know about this pandemic it's inevitable.

.At least Warriors can't be identified by a race. They could still keep the emblems on their helmets.


I assume that you are too young to know that the he Marquette Golden Eagles, were formerly known as the Marquette Warriors, before political correctness took over.

Not that I want to dismiss the suggestion that many Americans are behaving stupidly about Covid-19, who the heck is Seth Abramson as a source for something like that?

An attorney/Newsweek columnist/Author about Qanon.

To get to 2.5 million deaths now it would mean the really large states donít lock again, wear masks, social distance, etc...  The smaller states would have to just stick their heads in the sand and say it wonít happen. If the deaths start creeping up again people will have to start taking it more seriously again.

Those of us who care about our country must accept the possibility that too many Americans are selfish or stupid for us to ever control COVID-19. That means we're headed to the "uncontrolled" scenario experts warned ofó2.5 million dead. Prepare yourself mentally for that outcome.
