wild pig making a comeback here in the yet-to-be-smothered east bay hills west of the Amador Valley.

returning from combat tours in the Nam alumni ballers would show up at the end of one of our three-a-days in summer to roast a fresh kill for the team. bad asses hunted with long knives. hot, greasy and good. '69-'72.

a construction boom upset the breeding grounds pushing the pigs out further east. but they are back, even tearing up the "green space" and lawns in Moraga and Orinda.

Yeah, i'm not part of the upset crowd when it comes to Fauci wanting to do science. put me in with the group who isn't pleased with his track record of "allowing" the CDC to be co-opted on his watch.

That kind of thing is stupid.
The common cold and the flu CAN do many things to many people who are immunosuppressed or otherwise compromised.
Covid CAN do many things. Is it? And if it is how often?
I hate to go all Fauci here but this is the kind of the sky is falling sensationalism every crisis breeds that may or may not have much credibility and that prompts panic and irrational decisions.
How about some facts rather than conjectures?

Buckeye

I think Fauci should do all the double blind test he wants, with anyone who volunteers.

In the meantime, we should be pushing the drugs to the front lines, exploit the “compassionate care”, and let it rip.

It will become clear quickly if there is measurable benefit.

In the meantime, figure out what it takes to ramp up production.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Welp,
My county finally got its first case.
This is why I think a statewide hunker down approach is stupid.
All sorts of people from my little county go down to Sacramento county to shop at Costco and that is perfectly fine under the rules because shopping for supplies and groceries is of course not banned.
That seems to me a very good way to spread the bug from infected places to non infected.
Tell people to hunker down in their counties not their houses and you put up a better barrier to keep it from spreading.

Went to Kroger today.

Tried to buy 3 packages of chicken. They made me put one back. No tater tots, frozen peas or biscuits to be had.

Sunday breakfast with no biscuits?

They actually had a state trooper stationed at the checkouts, she said her duty was to ensure 'good order' was maintained.

I didn't push back on the chicken thingy.

The madness of crowds...

I have a question.

We will run out of bar soap here soon. Does dishwashing liquid (in this case, Palmolive) work as well for hand-washing? I happened to stock up on that when Kroger had a great sale a couple of weeks ago.

Also, since I can't wash dishes in boiling water like if I had a dishwasher, does adding 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the dish liquid help?

I guess there was a press conference today.

@drkarlynb

Dr. Fauci pointing out that giving hope to people and trying something that not 100% proven is not incompatible with also doing due diligence to really understand that the drugs do what you need them to. Bravo. I hope @PeterAlexander has somehow found a way to release his pearls.

KevlarKid

hot water and dishwashing liquid works. i have a 3 quart bowl with clean water and 1/2 teaspoon of bleach for rinsing hands 3 times per day...nooks and crannies that soaping can miss. hydro peroxide works too.

we wash dishes by hand with a hot sink rinse. 1/2 teaspoon of bleach in the rinse. rubber gloves if your skin is sensitive. learned about it in high school doing restaurant dishes. no room for bacteria back then when health departments actually inspected eateries.

If Fauci wants to keep his job, he will do what is right.

Thanks, Kev!

Extraneus

Why six days from today? The draft paper was from the 17th. People have been talking about the drugs for days, and surely some have been trying it. From the paper, infected people started showing signs of no virus after 1 day on the drugs, so there's at least 3 more days of data out there somewhere.

I'm guessing that China has been trying it, and if they had positive results they would have ridden to the rescue with the data. Seems like a bad omen that this hasn't happened, although maybe they're just waiting to place some stock trades first.

Or he was just sucking up to who he thought was his future boss.

KevlarKid

i'm in favor of Trump shaming Schumer at every presser until Cokie Mitch can get the votes for censure.

Censure in the senate turns its target into a leper. ask Joe McCarthy. the Club is quite wary of that practice. Still, Choomer Chucky Cheesecake deserves it.

KevlarKid

Airlines were hauling US mail as far back as 1957 when my Paw joined the FAA. it's a staple revenue generator still today.

Another Bob

"his track record of "allowing" the CDC to be co-opted on his watch"

KK, Fauci is not now and never has been part of the CDC. The "National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases" reports to HHS through NIH. No connection to CDC at all so far as I can tell.

Melinda

Probably able to haul more than usual due to light loads.

Ask Madge.

Another Bob

MM, I used to wash my hands with dish detergent all the time. Didn't like keeping a bar of soap on the kitchen sink and for years never bothered buying liquid hand soap.

It's pretty concentrated though - use more than a couple drops and you'll be rinsing for a while.

Another Bob

"Or he was just sucking up to who he thought was his future boss.

Prolly right."

That's my take. You don't hang around as an agency head as long as he has without being a toady when it matters.

At least Fauci is an actual MD. The head of WHO? Not.

Seriously for those of us of a certain -um--age, ordering online is best. Also, it helps keep the crowds in the stores and contagion lower. And it's good for the sellers--warehouse space is cheaper than prime retail space and you certainly must need fewer stockers .

You don’t think Trump hasn’t seen Fauci’s facial expressions when he dissed China at the presser, do you. I am on the side of a good dressing down and it wouldn’t surprise if it came from a proxy like Pence.

Good afternoon! I'm sitting on the lanai reading JOM watching the big fluffy clouds roll by. The dog is driving me crazy. His barking is out of control,even for a terrier. I'm going to Petco tomorrow for Rescue Remedy to put in his water. Hubby said the dog senses my stress. Me,stressed? :) I read an article on the Bangor Daily News online that some summer residents are coming up to their Maine summer residences and the locals are worried they will bring the virus with them. Our community here in Florida is encouraging residents to write uplifting and upbeat messages on the sidewalks. I'm going to get some sidewalk chalk and write on our sidewalk..."Get a grip,people!"

lyle

From that earlier AT link:

Careful observers have noted that after the almost daily White House news conferences with President Trump and members of the Coronavirus Task Force, Fauci, a regular attendee and the task force's chief medical spokesman, often runs to Trump-hating media like CNN to contradict — usually with a degree of nuance that gives him plausible deniability — what the president has just said. The Daily Mail of London noted this behavior in a March 20 article, "Dr Anthony Fauci caught rolling his eyes and smirking as President Trump rants about the 'deep state' during coronavirus press conference."

Little twerp.

MissMarple2

You're welcome peter.
Worth posting this again as a reminder;

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. One day she asked Johnny what his problem was he replied, “I’m too smart for the first grade, my sister is in the third grade and I’m smarter than her too.”

The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation to the principal. The principal told her that he would give Johnny a test, and if he failed to answer one question he would have to go back to the first grade and be quiet. The teacher and Johnny both agreed.

Principal: “What is 3 x 3?”

Johnny: “9.”

Principal: “6 x 6?”

Johnny: “36.”

And so it went on like this, the principal asked him every question a third grader should know. Finally after about an hour he told the teacher “I see no reason Johnny can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.”

The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions. The principal and Johnny agree.

Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?”

Johnny: “Legs”

Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”

The principal gasps but before he can stop him from answering Johnny says, “Pockets.”

Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”

Johnny: “Pants.”

Teacher: “What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?”

Johnny: “Firetruck.”

The principal breaths a big sigh of relief and says “Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I got the last 4 questions wrong myself.”

You guys MUST read the replies to Sullivan's tweet and column, because it is obvious to me that people are onto her game!

And here is MY question:

WHY are the dems and the press acting like cornered animals? This behavior is abnormal. They KNOW the public doesn't like how they are acting, and yet, instead of modifying it a little bit, they ramp it up even more.

What are they so afraid of?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

And these two beautiful passages too;
Philippians 4:6-9;

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

and one of the most beautiful passages anywhere, Matthew 6:25-34;
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

bubarooni,

Here on the south side of Indianapolis, public swimming pools would be closed when an epidemic appeared. Those were the years when my mom llet us fill a wading pool out in the yard or run through the sprinkler. (Summers in Indiana with no air conditioning were pretty brutal.)

That is why they lined us all up for polio vaccinations when it was introduced. And I think that it was paid for by the government (state, federal, or school system, I don't know).

Ok, this is long, and we’re all tired of reading about it, but this is the best thing I’ve read about the Chinese virus: lots of data, sound reasoning, and most important, he seems to agree with me. :)

A couple of excerpts:
Local governments and politicians are inflicting massive harm and disruption with little evidence to support their draconian edicts. Every local government is in a mimetic race to one-up each other in authoritarian city ordinances to show us who has more “abundance of caution”. Politicians are competing, not on more evidence or more COVID-19 cures but more caution.

On closing schools:
Closing schools is counterproductive.... Based on transmission evidence children are more likely to catch COVID-19 in the home than at school. As well, they are more likely to expose older vulnerable adults as multi-generational homes are more common.

Lots more here, read the whole thing. Seriously.
