  1. Really frustrating to not see the numbers drop off more in the USA after all the lockdown for the past 2 months. People still catching this damn thing.
  2. I think it's a foregone conclusion that there will be an increase in infections. The thing that will give the "it's too soon" crowd legitimate ammo is if the increase is enough to overwhelm the state's medical resources. Short of that, it'll be easy (and, I think, justified) to write off anyone who continues to argue "too soon" as somebody who's fixated on unrealistic "COVID-19 eradication" goals to the exclusion of everything else. In any case, having to wait on the order of a month to know the effect of today's actions is rough.
  3. A/A+ Little Women is a captivating movie from start to finish. I don't usually like Period dramas, but I really got hooked and drawn into this movie with the sensational performances, terrific sets, magnificent costumes, and awesome score. They truly did make me feel like I was back in the 1800 hundreds with the sets, costumes, and production design. Hats off to Greta Gerwig and her team. Couple weeks since I've seen this movie, and I can't get out of my head how good this movie was. The costumes, THE COSTUMES! So so good. The editing style, AMEN! There's been other retellings of this story adapted into movie, but I don't see any of them topping this. Could not be more thrilled with this movie.
  4. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/public-health/2020/04/25/dallas-medical-team-rescues-coronavirus-patient-after-30-days-on-life-support/ Cool story.
  5. Why the huge number in Spain today? Makes me sad to see it jump when things had been trending down.
  6. Funny I watched this movie last night. Sam Rockwell is like only redeeming thing about this movie. He has so much fun with his role.
  7. It was captivating from start to finish. The editing style was a bit weird at first, but I got used to it with the color contrast. The editing really paid off near the end of the 2nd act with the most emotionally impactful movie scene of 2019(at least in my eyes).
  8. Got a chance to watch the new Little Women film. Outstanding movie. I was surprised how much I liked it bc I don’t usually like period pieces.
  9. My wife has cabin fever real bad, been off since March 11th. she’s ready to get Back to work.
  10. When you lose trust, conspiracy theories are what you get. Many governments at all levels have lost trust, including some at state and local levels that entered this circus with broad tolerance if not outright support. The public was sold on “n days/weeks to flatten the curve.” There was broad bipartisan acceptance of massive disruption for up to a couple months for the sake of getting the health care infrastructure up to the task. Now almost every hospital outside NYC sits mostly empty, furloughing workers and at risk of closing. Hospital ships? Unused. Field hospitals? Deserted. And we’ve learned that most patients who need ventilators—and presumably almost all of those in the highest-risk groups—never come off of them alive. There are of course no shortages anyway, but if there were, the death rate wouldn’t spike as we were told at the outset. I think people see the horizon starting to perpetually retreat. We seem to be approaching the “hospitals ready” exit ramp without slowing down, and as long as possible treatments are being pooh-poohed as unproven with no seeming urgency to prove or disprove them, the only other exit ramp we know of is 1.5-2 years down the road. Panic and rebellion are not justifiable. The vaccine endgame is not viable. In that kind of time, skills are lost. A generation falls irrecoverably behind in their education—disproportionately, of course, the children of single, poor, and/or uneducated parents. Lifestyle changes plus stress plus avoidance of routine health services equals mortality. And by the 10th or 15th round of stimulus checks, it’s only a question of whether the Senate majority or inflation rears its head first.
