      stay safer … 6 feet of space between you and any other person appears to be the current guess. 



    • MADCO says:

      Because you are glad to have a job to go to

      • Diogenesdemar says:

        Glad . . .

        . . . is a state of mind.

        But, yeah, “to go to.”

          I am not at work, but only because today is one of my two days off this week. I foolishly went to Costco.. People are nuts. Or at least Costco people. Everyone was buying cases of water and giant bags of beans. Why water? Ain’t the tap good enough during quarantine? I got my basics and got out before I was seduced by getting anything more or the infectious stupid got me. I’ll live off everything I already have if I need to.

          Well okay, I did buy one giant bag of smoked almonds that I do not really need. They were on sale.

    Closed Congressional briefing yesterday:  70 – 150 million Americans could become infected.  Times 1% rate equals 700,000 – 1.5 million deaths.  I wish we had President Obama’s administration (or Hillary Clinton’s administration) handling this crisis.

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      I’m pretty certain there’s been more than sufficient planning for this crisis, . . .

      . . . and that all the Ttumps and Kushners were advised to short everything, yesterday, in advance of last night’s European travel ban announcement?

    Washington State still counting but with 77 percent now in, Biden leads by 17,000 votes.  He is winning the election day vote and seems certain to win the final talley, albeit narrowly.

    The Intercept: Mystery Group Attacking Colorado Public Option Funded by Hospital Lobbyists and Medical Debt Collection Firm

    Colorado’s Health Care Future is overseen by Chip Kahn, a longtime Republican strategist and chief lobbyist for the Federation of American Hospitals, a trade group in Washington, D.C., that lobbies on behalf of 17 of the largest investor-owned hospitals in Colorado. The effort is also backed financially by private insurers, drug companies, and health product corporations.

    Far from representing a broad array of Coloradans, many of the people featured in Colorado’s Health Care Future’s online ads are stock images. Much of the rhetoric in the ads reflects talking points developed by health care lobbyists over the last two years to defeat similar proposals across the country.
