Re: Who should take the blame?

When my back-of-an-envelope, SIR- and machine learning-free predictions turn out to be correct---death rate slightly higher than the flu, but not orders of magnitude; NYC nearing herd immunity; virus very widespread in many countries; etc.---as increasingly seems likely, who will get the blame for ...

Re: Good things that come out of this pandemic...

I read many, fairly obsessively. And then I just stopped, I don’t know why.

Then I must have grown up around 40 which I'm pretty sure was not the case!

Re: Good things that come out of this pandemic...

I finally finished Moby Dick. I learned a lot of facts about whales that aren’t true. Who would you pick as co-CEO if you were starting a new business? Ahab or Queequeg? Curious if you will read another novel soon, or if the tome that is MD was enough for awhile. If English - Lady Chat. or The Gold...

You're trying to craft a limerick?
Would you like to hear one?

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Trump tweets that he is going to designate Antifa a terrorist organization. I’m not personally a big fan, but the damage they may have wrought just absolutely pales compared to that caused by Trump and the GOP. So that’s where to look for real terrorists! There was that inconvenient matter of an el...
