    Heavy sigh. None of these joke will save a single life, and Trumpf can not be shamed. If only the CDC were privately owned and turned a hugh profit.
    The Spanish flu of 1918 had a kill rate of 1% and killed more world wide then were killed in all of World War I.
    This one has a kill rate (so far) of 3.4.
    Mr Trumpf please touch your face, you know you want to, you love it so much.

    Satire rarely saves lives; its main purpose to save sanity. It’s the mental version of analgesia.

    For instance, may I point out the hideously humorous nature of the fact that Trump and his team are being outwitted… by a _virus_. It’s a life form so low that it’s a stretch to call it a life form; and it is besting Donald Trump.

    But you’re right; part of the awful joke is that knowing that it’s true doesn’t do you much good.

    You likely won’t die of Covid-19; but you likely know someone who will. The Great Grief is coming; a world in mourning. Some will try to hide it with anger; that backfires. Others will laugh; that provides symptomatic relief. Others will weep, which is therapeutic.

    Panic and fear rarely save lives either.

    If you don’t like humor or satire, you came to the wrong website!

    I’m 76 and prone to respiratory problems. So far, so good. Since the only test kits in Missouri are evidently in Jefferson City and I live in the St. Louis area, that won’t be of any help. (I assume they are being kept there so that our Republican legislators have them handy for themselves.) I have never washed my hands as much and I’m a handwasher by nature. We eat out often and I’m not going to change that, (yet). We go to the movies several times a month. I might change that a bit. Make sure it’s something I really really want to see, instead of going because I feel the need for some movie theater popcorn. I have a hunch that those reclining, almost comfortable, seats are never sanitized. I wonder if they would get mad if I sprayed them with rubbing alcohol? This whole thing could turn out to be not much or go the other way and be huge. It’s already huge for those affected and the families of those dead.

    At any rate, if I don’t post here for a few weeks, just take me off your list. This free form thought diarrhea is now ended.
