interesting. These are the same arguments we useta encounter from the non-engineering divisions on the Canopus (AS-34), Eisenhower (CVN-69), and Arkansas (CGN-41) when we'd run ship-wide radcon drills. People don't seem to understand the importance of isolation and cessation of activities during cleanliness protocols.

Everyone's job was "more important" such that we constantly had to stress how paramount it is that EVERYONE follow the procedures for them to work.

That's why the little graphical simulation given in the free WSJ article is so important to regard.

Trump won the Electoral Vote 306 to 232. If you want to talk about percentages, Hillary was the winner in 16 states. Do the math.

The Democrats may whine about the outcome and do everything they can to change the Constitution. But our Founding Fathers were wise to even the odds somewhat for less populated states.

Yep!

And I laugh at the movement by Dems in recent years to try and rescind the electoral college. Just b/c it's not working out for them.

For many democrats virtue and convenience are synonymous. The discerning factor is what works for you as opposed to what is inherently right.

NY should be locked down for a couple of weeks.
The state, or NYC specifically?

Probably just the city, but I reserve the right to change my mind.

I believe the state as a whole for Jersey, and I think Connecticut, were also on the block.

While NY may not be completely shut down, this is far from "business as usual." There have been drastic changes compared to a month ago. It was always going to be the epicenter regardless of what democratic party was in control.

And no, China has not been as transparent as I would have hoped. Had the virus hit in reverse order, China would have been much better prepared.

Iím sure youíre right. De Blasio made it sound as if the changes in NYC have been minor. I donít have to live there to know thatís not true. Politicians are geared to downplay the effects of anything that could cast a dark shadow on their city or state.

I agree with you about China. Only a fool would trust them now.

How do you explain a story like this? A miracle, an outlier? It seems to defy everything we have learned so far about the Covid-19 virus.

That he made it to 99 years of age is a miracle in itself, so it appears luck has been on his side for the long ride. I'll pay for him to go to Vegas once it reopens in a normal fashion (hope his range of movement is good enough to play the dice tables). I'll be banking on it.

Sad news. Tulsa native Joe Diffie has died from Covid-19 at the age of 61. I saw him in concert in Tulsa in 1992 at Mayfest.
