    FL hospitals are now hitting ICU capacity and are beginning to have to decide who to give vents to. AZ is on the verge as well. Stay safe folks.

    This morning I read that leadership at the federal level threatened to cut funding to schools that don't reopen this fall. Leadership mentioned other countries around the world that are open with no problems. Here's the list of yesterday's new COVID19 cases in the countries mentioned: Denmark: 10 Norway: 11 Sweden: 57 Germany: 298 USA: 55,442

    OT - Bloomington, a city on the brink?

    Apparently "that's what you get" for being "stupid liberal f--ks" when crossing paths with Jerry Cox on the 4th of July in Monroe county.

    LOL! Well, Charley Leo was an offensive guard back in the early 60s that played for the Pats and Bills during the AFL days. He was a 1st team All-AFL in '61. There's also a composer named Leonard Slatkin that studied at IU, so there's that.

    Man, I feel like this was already covered back in earlier posts? Oh I don't know, sometime in late March when we were all jonesing for some Hoosiers ballin' in the tourney! Something about applying exponential math to our current health care system/infrastructure.

    I wholeheartedly agree about your assessment of comparing rural v urban. I will say where I reside, the Evansville area, wearing a mask is almost nonexistent in both Evansville and towns surrounding it. So it appears both aren't having it down here. But to be fair, I am practicing social/physical distancing so I really don't get out all that much and I might be off on that comment. But of the places I have gone (grocery stores, home improvement stores, walking trail) I feel like I'm the only one wearing a mask. It's rare to see other folk wearing a mask, that's for sure. I feel like there's a scarlet letter on me or something. It's really bizarre. What's really crazy about this virus is that experts in the field are struggling with trying to understand it. Because in some places cases are increasing and decreasing in others. And I've read where an expert is saying the data on the effectiveness of masks is lacking. But he still recommends to wear a mask. His advice to protect yourself is distance, distance, distance and do not rely on a cloth face covering to protect you or to keep you from transmitting to others. Leadership at the federal level made wearing a mask a political thing and folks have just given up with the social/physical distancing. That's the unfortunate truth of the matter.

    Huh? Man, your response is a prime example of folks not being on the same page. You be you sir. Have a good day.

    This country isn't practicing social distancing like other countries on the planet? This country has given up? There's a lack of leadership to guide the population to be on the same page? Honestly, I don't really have a 'conclusion' per se, considering this is a fluid problem that requires humility, empathy and a full understanding of just how long this war is going to take to claim victorious. That last stat (25%) will change. It can get worse or better. I don't even understand why you're asking this question?

    The US is less than 5% of the world's population but it's about 25% of COVID-19 deaths worldwide. In my opinion, which means nothing, deciding if kids can play sports at this moment is a loss in priority. And allowing it to happen is incompetent for the health and safety of these children. This isn't going to go away. Leadership months ago stated we are at war. And the current way to successfully 'win' a battle in this war is social distancing along with doing things like wearing a mask. But it appears we have raised the white flag and loss the war because the country as a whole has just given up.

    @Napleshoosier how are things in your neck of the woods? I'm seeing some crazy numbers coming up from your state. Sending positive vibes to you and yours. Stay safe fellow Hoosier!

    I think it might be possible they got tested because someone tested positive thus causing 'contact tracing' among your daughter's friend being exposed. Of course I'm just guessing here and don't really have a clue what the policy is at the state level of Ohio and/or the local hospital level. But if I had to guess that's the reason for the testing. Again just a complete guess. Do you know the reason why the first positive case was tested in the first place? I think that's the heart of the issue among many locations here in the US. Where I live, southwestern Indiana, folks are still being turned away from testing.

    From what I understand throughout the entire history of vaccines for infectious diseases there has never been an industrial scale in 18 months. Vaccine development is usually measured in years, not months. The typical vaccine takes between eight to 10 years to develop. And an 18 month timeline involves not looking at ALL the data. The industry is taking new approaches for this vaccine and it's not dotting the i's and crossing the t's. This is why I mentioned in earlier posts a need for competent leadership. In my opinion, it's crucial to set truthful expectations to the nation because we're going to start witnessing some volatile folk, much worse than the current situation. And man, do I hope I'm wrong.
