If we could get college costs down by trimming into overhead with more online courses, I think most would accept that compromise gladly.

It is the way to go for relatively simple things, especially if you are generally health conscious and aware of your body.

Two good things they may come from this, I love the doc by video

More and more cities are passing shelter at home orders. Meanwhile DC residents are on the Mall and walking along tidal basin by the thousands.

I'll give you one guess about the age range of the overwhelming majority...

Like 90% of people on my social media have been screaming about staying the fuck home for like two weeks now and relentlessly posting articles about flattening the curve.

But if anyone listened to those people, Elizabeth Warren would be the nominee.

It’s beyond comprehension.

The morons lining up in Toronto for video games...words fail.

I am finding there is a bit of an authoritarian streak in me these days.

No no no, you should start doing that thing about their age or something.

You’re going to make a great old person.

Why New York (and other places) have yet to switch to clinical diagnosis based upon contact tracing is beyond me.

This seems to be the conservative talking point this weekend.

Potential mass death and suffering vs business is open!

That and blaming the Chinese

just found out my aunt in Argentina is in critical condition and in intensive care in Argentina from a sudden pneumonia. They are testing her for COVID19 but only one hospital in all of Argentina is testing for COVID19 so they may not find out for many days. She was otherwise healthy except for fighting some depression because her sister passed away of lung cancer a month ago. I’m praying she pulls through this but it was so sudden! Yesterday although she was sick, she was still doing well.

News report from Italy:

Slightly maddening that the reporter is in better PPE than the staff.

Not that this is a shock but it appears as tho profits are more important than saving people’s lives

Listening to Cuomo right now.

He really is the kind of asshole you want to lead in a crisis.

Cuomo is a leader- I have really gained a lot of respect for him during this crisis-

If the dems were smart they would nominate him by acclimation at the convention. I'm a republican, but Cuomo would destroy Trump by like 40 states.

I fear that this will sink Trump for being an incompetent boob but ultimately make right wing nationalism more popular.

Or we all get lucky and the changing of seasons actually does eliminate this thing (likely temporarily), and folks believe it was cause Trump closed borders (too late) and he gets re-elected just in time for this thing to flare up again in November.

If people would have listened to Dustin Hoffman we'd already have caught the outbreak monkey
