We've been hearing from the left for years how great the health system is in Cuba, why aren't all the leftists heading there to survive the 2020 Covid plague? This little moment of schadenfreude brought to you by Babalu blog: https://babalublog.com/2020/03/31/covid-19-strands-chilean-leftist-and-castro-regime-supporter-in-socialist-cuba-pleads-for-help-to-escape/

So RBG works out a gym? Is that how she got those massive cannonball deltoids?

jim, sunnyvale @ 10:02, when I commuted to high school fifty years ago, I would pass the Vernon-Jackson subway stop twice a day and never got out to look around. When I was in law school, working a day job in Manhattan, I would park my car in Long Island City which was a pretty rough area then. Now Jackson Avenue is full of beautiful new high rise apartment buildings and very upscale (although parking, and shops few.) Good luck to your daughter if she is lucky enough (and bright enough) to work at a "big law" law firm.

I would like to give a local report. I took a walk at lunch time yesterday around my company's Sunnyside-Long Island City area. The businesses along Queens Boulevard, normally bustling, are nearly completely shut down, save for the CVS. Dunkin' Donuts, all other restaurants except for a walk up pizza stand, and McDonald's are closed; Irish pubs shuttered; hardly any traffic. Extremely light traffic on the L.I.E. I have the unenviable task of helping management by drafting termination letters. Feel like I should be wearing an executioner's hood. My company is an essential service, so I am working in the office, but they have furloughed many people and most of the company's cash flow is way down as contracts are either terminated or renegotiated severely downward. The conmpany is giving them severance pay, but what do these workers do when that runs out? In other news, Bestselling Author Laura Hillenbrand has COVID, she describes going through some very harrowing symptoms; singer John Prine, who was close to dead is closer. And my two local liquor stores are both closed, although one in Long Island City is still open. Peace out

Here is Whitmer on the floor of the Michigan state legislature during a speech revealing that she had been a rape victim twenty years before, in the middle of a debate on abortion. (Warning HUFFPOST) https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gretchen-whitmer-rape_n_4432203
Lovin' the references to Big Mama Thornton. We have two compilation CDs of hers--great lady, shame she died so young, doubtless her considerable BMI had something to do with it. Also love Little Walter and that Dave Mason LP? Wore the grooves off of it back in college. Funny, but despite his creds, Dave Mason has for decades toured as a solo act in lower tier venues--saw him in the 90s playing in a shutdown roller rink in Greenport, NY.
I'm not seeing Massie as being the Masshole here.
i don't know if I would want to be hooked up to a ventilator made at the GM Lordstown plant. That's where they made Chevy Vegas.
Several of my company's employees have tested positive for the C-virus.
Regarding sharing a ventilator with three other patients, I sure as hell wouldn't want to be hooked up to three other dying patients. Ventilators are nasty super Petri dishes of germs that need to be cleaned periodically.
TOM MAGUIRE! that video made me LOL!
I quit smoking years ago. The funny thing about nicotine is every once in a while I smell a cigarette and think it's a nice smell, but most of the time I smell second hand smoke and hate it. I work with a lot of smokers and they stand directly outside the entrance to the office. Anecdotal experience today from Whole Foods (went there looking for a certain kind of kefir I pour on my cereal each morning. ) Aisles are very narrow, impossible to obey six foot rule, people got along any way.

It's not as if the major museums in NYC don't take in a tremendous amount of money. The last time I went to the Met, adult admission was $22 for seniors, which is pretty steep. And it was very crowded, as it nearly always is.

Narciso, that's exactly what I was working from. I had to learn from wikipedia, that the term "respirator" includes facial filters and does not necessarily mean pumped in air.

Bleg: I have to write up some kind of handout for N-95 masks my company is offering to its field workers. Does anyone know if an N-95 respirator is the same as an N-95 mask? The CDC materials I see on line do not explain whether these are the same or different. Respirator, to me, implies some kind of air-pump. Anyone here who can steer me in the direction of some helpful information?

Yeah, they closed all the parks and beaches here too. On the basis of absolutely nothing other than, because we can.
