Quants thinking they know all about epidemics.

(I didn't notice so many epidemiologists telling quants what to do during any financial crisis.)

Coronavirus: DUP man in apology after claiming pandemic God's wrath for abortion and same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news ... 96782.html

And this is the party that the Tories have been propping up for the last 100 years.

The DUP don't need a copy of Dr. Ferguson's code?

Another luvvie, Neil Gaiman, comes out as hypocrite; the lockdown rules don't apply to him natch. (I've only read one of his books. Guardian readers probably say "deep and meaningful." I say "trite and childish.")

New hobbies

Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west, and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh... Now you tell me what you know

Politics, as usual
Exemption of travellers from island of Ireland from UK 14-day quarantine welcomed
