COVID continues

Screen Shot 2020-03-17 at 1.08.58 PMI guess Darwinism is headed back to work in May: the midwest is looking to “restart their economies” before the viral threat has even remotely diminished. To those who feel their “freedom to pick up fish sticks without wearing a mask or social distancing” is more important than other people’s “right to continue to be alive,” I urge you to reconsider.

In Another Country Who Is Doing Better Than We Are news, Germany, a place run by a woman, is killing it. (And by “it,” I mean the virus, not rational, scientifically-based thought.) They are throwing so many resources at this that they have medical professionals roaming neighborhoods, assessing early-stage cases and sending some to the hospital preemptively to – gasp! – preclude the need for emergency intervention later.

And finally, not new news, but still very sad: the Edinburgh Festival was finally officially cancelled, dashing our plans for August. I’m considerably more upset about this than the summer Olympics’ deferral, which goes to show how far I’ve come as a person since I was 12 and was truly upset at realizing I would not become a breakout gymnast despite only having done, like, one vault in 4th grade.

    I’m thoroughly disgusted with 45’s attitude, tone, and incompetence in this crisis. What’s even more disappointing, is the lack of common sense by millions of people in this country. Looking at Florida and Texas, their state leadership give zero fucks about saving lives.

    BTW, I remember you doing trapeze!!!!

      No kidding. For once, I’m glad I’m in CA and not back in New York – super scary. (Trapeze was a while ago: now – well, pre-quarantine – my daughter has started aerial training.)
