The Dem sharks have to smell blood in the water.

I still predict that Cuomo makes a move, and probably ends up the nominee, but he'll have to slit Hillary's throat in the process, with the possible help of Tom Fitton.

--Bluesette is one of my favorite pieces, and I have never heard of Lenny Breau before this; thanks, bro.--

I hadn't either but I read that Danny Gatton considered him the pinnacle of guitarists so I looked him up. His dexterity with both hands was amazing. His idol was Chet Atkins who he got to play with and can be seen on youtube. A lot of Merle Travis influence too.
He used a seven string guitar later on.

How does Fredo the Elder help the Dems? The corruption in Albany exceeds Arkansas.

Marlene,

I heard about it at cocktails. No details. A doctor friend today sent me an article that says low carbs helps prevent cognitive decline. ANd high carbs starts the decline in your 40's. Interesting.

peter, you should check out Lenny Breau on Spotify.

He is absolutely, unquestionably at a MINIMUM cognitively impaired.

What struck me from his sister/wife gaffe was when he said “I’m Jill’s husband”:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wacY29iMuUs

He has either learned certain short sayings to stay on track or he was fed a correction that he wasn’t supposed to repeat outloud.

I believe the latter.

I don’t understand the run on toilet paper.

Are you shitting me?

Captain Hate

Yes, any plan that includes Fredo is less than optimal.

Extraneus

Sure, but he never gets personally associated with the corruption, including that of his hand-picked economic czar, Alain Kalayeros, who's headed to prison. Meanwhile, he has carefully cultivated a moderate rep while being a completely solid leftist, and will talk tough New Yawker street lingo, which Dems will eat right up, thinking that's what's needed to go up against The Don.

Captain Hate

Trump versus Fredo is something Vince McMahon would put on pay per view.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Role of Chest CT in Diagnosis and Management.
Li Y, et al. AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2020.
Show full citation
Abstract
OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to determine the misdiagnosis rate of radiologists for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and evaluate the performance of chest CT in the diagnosis and management of COVID-19. The CT features of COVID-19 are reported and compared with the CT features of other viruses to familiarize radiologists with possible CT patterns.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included the first 51 patients with a diagnosis of COVID-19 infection confirmed by nucleic acid testing (23 women and 28 men; age range, 26-83 years) and two patients with adenovirus (one woman and one man; ages, 58 and 66 years). We reviewed the clinical information, CT images, and corresponding image reports of these 53 patients. The CT images included images from 99 chest CT examinations, including initial and follow-up CT studies. We compared the image reports of the initial CT study with the laboratory test results and identified CT patterns suggestive of viral infection.

RESULTS: COVID-19 was misdiagnosed as a common infection at the initial CT study in two inpatients with underlying disease and COVID-19. Viral pneumonia was correctly diagnosed at the initial CT study in the remaining 49 patients with COVID-19 and two patients with adenovirus. These patients were isolated and obtained treatment. Ground-glass opacities (GGOs) and consolidation with or without vascular enlargement, interlobular septal thickening, and air bronchogram sign are common CT features of COVID-19. The The "reversed halo" sign and pulmonary nodules with a halo sign are uncommon CT features. The CT findings of COVID-19 overlap with the CT findings of adenovirus infection. There are differences as well as similarities in the CT features of COVID-19 compared with those of the severe acute respiratory syndrome.

CONCLUSION: We found that chest CT had a low rate of missed diagnosis of COVID-19 (3.9%, 2/51) and may be useful as a standard method for the rapid diagnosis of COVID-19 to optimize the management of patients. However, CT is still limited for identifying specific viruses and distinguishing between viruses.

TK, how many bales of TP does a typical family use over two weeks? Granted, you can blow your nose on it too. Yet no run on kleenex?

jimmyk

I presume people are stocking up on necessities out of some fear that they'll be homebound for some very long period of time. It all seems way out of proportion to the risk. But maybe a better theory is that it's just an old-fashioned run: If you see everyone else doing it, you better too, because the shelves will be bare. Still, this isn't Venezuela. Markets will respond if they're allowed to.

The Camry was later found parked in Cassopolis, and that’s where the two suspects were arrested. They’re a 19-year-old Columbus, Ohio man, and a 21-year-old Elkhart, Indiana man. They’re now charged with home invasion, armed robbery, killing or torturing an animal, larceny from a building, assault with a dangerous weapon, and felony firearm. The investigation into the armed robbery continues, and police ask anyone with information to contact them. The two suspects have been arraigned with bond set at $80,000.

A New York prog, especially an abrasive, angry one who looks like a not very goodfella with what seems to me pretty limited appeal to the Bernbots, does not seem like the optimal candidate to pull out a win in the tough midwest states a Dem has to win.

This is the cruel reality facing the Dems at the moment; an old, demented, plagiarizing, insulting, hair sniffing, child fondling, paste eating, finger sucking, crazy-ass-crook fathering, doddering, fabulist of a faux-tough-guy is the best they got.

How does any sane person listen to a prog demanding that abortion clinics not be subject to essentially any safety standards and not come away thinking they are ghouls and not even honest ghouls? Aren't these the same damn morons who scream 'back alley abortions' at the drop of hat? But if a state tries to demand even minimal competency of the doc or safety for the patient it's infringing a right.
It seems to be the actual killing of the baby that is the only thing truly sacrosanct.
The only thing true about 'safe, legal and rare' was legal.

"One source told me that five of the seven employees in his office have had flu symptoms over the past week. Three of them have quarantined themselves at home. The others continue to work as usual. None, though, have gone to be tested. Their primary fear is that if they don’t already have the coronavirus, they might become infected at the hospital."

I guess that's a rational response in Iran, if you're sick and not dying stay away from the hospital.

Of course, if most people in Iran think like that the virus will keep spreading and not show up in the statistics except in the case of dead bodies.

Ignatz,

If John Roberts or any other Justice votes against the basic health requirements in this law, it tells me all I need to know about what they really think of women. One of the strongest arguments for Roe v. Wade was to get rid of the back alley abortionists and provide a healthier, safer way for women who choose abortion. But aren't they advocating a situation similar to the "back alley abortionist" by opposing the requirements in this law?

As far as I know the D talking point about Americans paying the highest prices for pharmaceuticals is true. The counter argument of “muh innovation” also has validity. But somewhere along the line China and India got 80% of our production. Now we not only still pay the highest prices but we are incredibly vulnerable to interruption from trade wars, real wars and disasters real or imagined.

One may not merely boycott lifesaving drugs.

We could also be providing our kids and grandkids upper middle class lifestyles.

The people who made this possible might be going to hell but nobody will go to jail.

Looking at Johns Hopkins again.

Italy has retaken 3rd place in the standings from Iran by 60 cases ruining my theory. It's all those damn Iranians hiding from the authorities.

Statistical oddity: Iran with 5,823 cases is reporting 1,669 recovered people, second only to Hubei Province. South Korea with 7,134 cases is reporting only 135 recovered. Italy is reporting 589 recovered. This doesn't make a lot of sense.

‘Marxist pig’ Carlos Maza wants us to stop taking political advice from the ultra-wealthy (except for him)
He's the Media Matters punk who got Stephen Crowder deplatformed at youtube.
His family also owns multiple mansions, $7 million Upper West Side pads, yachts and his new step daddy founded a company that sold for $11 billion last year.
If they keep it up a revolution will stop being a reluctant necessity and more of an elective desire. I suspect when those two views toggle that may be the trigger point.

DrJ

narc,

Why are all source materials from china?

Do you mean pharmaceuticals? If so, the answer is simple.

The US focuses on high "valued added" materials, including pharma. That's where the profits are.

The precursors (or building blocks) are old technology, and low margin. So these are farmed out to the lowest bidder while quality is good enough. I question whether the quality is there, but that's the reasoning.

That's true in pharma, semiconductor materials, polymers, fine chemicals, and all the rest.
