  1. What Are You Watching

    PBS has made Ken Burns' Baseball free to watch during the pandemic. https://www.pbs.org/show/baseball/?te=1&nl=watching&emc=edit_wg_20200316&campaign_id=20&instance_id=16818&segment_id=22291&user_id=135c96e9e1cbf6f46d4cd7b934304140&regi_id=9914356820200316
  2. I can send you flacs if you give me a list of the tracks you need, but you'll have to burn the CDR yourself.

    I was thinking about the rush to buy guns after Obama's election, but you're right: the hardcore gun-nuts likely have other sources for ammo than Cabela's. http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/11/11/obama.gun.sales/

    Well, at least our military is better than Norway's.

    CBS Evening News is saying "it's estimated" 3.5 billion N-95 masks will be needed, but currently there is a national stockpile of 12 million.

    I skimmed it, but whether it's true or not is irrelevant since BB has no credibility. You might as well have cited your personal astrologer as the source. I wouldn't believe either without gaining independent verification, and I just don't care enough about this particular story to go to that effort. Any excuse will do for those people to load up on ammo.

    Yes, Breitbart is fake news.

    [California] has begun enacting extreme measures to halt the coronavirus outbreak. On Monday, six counties around Silicon Valley, one of the hardest-hit areas in the nation, announced a shelter-at-home order that begins Tuesday, which Mayor Sam Liccardo of San Jose said was the strongest directive yet in the United States. Residents were told not go out for three weeks except to meet “essential needs.” The shelter-in-place order ... is expected to disrupt life for millions of residents in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and Santa Clara Counties. The city of Berkeley also issued the same order. A day earlier, Gov. Gavin Newsom had told all residents older than 65 to stay in their homes. He called for the closure of bars, nightclubs and wineries, and restrictions on restaurants. He banned visits to hospitals and nursing homes unless patients were on the edge of death. He announced plans to buy hotels to house some of the state’s 150,000 homeless people. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/16/us/california-covid-19.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage

    When I type "covid" into google, the auto-complete offers "covid translate to hebrew". Apparently there's a conspiracy theory going around that if you google-translate covid to Hebrew and back to English you get "Kobe", which proves ... something. Also, consider this: Kobe is buried in Corona del Mar!

    This is why civil war is inevitable: arguing will never get us anywhere. You can't argue with a rabid dog: all you can do is shoot it in the head.

    NPR's On The Media mentioned this, and also reported that "accounts by unnamed sources close to the President say he resisted offers by domestic labs to produce virus tests — because he didn’t like the “optics” of "national emergency" that steeply rising numbers would imply." https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/otm/segments/pandemic-propaganda

    Those MAGAts have been doing everything they can to hasten my death, including depriving me of healthcare, making guns readily available, denying climate change, and now denying the existence/seriousness of Covid-19. They're not my fellow countrymen; we just happen to be stuck in the same country together. If the two sides were separated geographically like they were in 1861 we'd be fighting another civil war now. But I'd better stop before I get political.

    I hope they're all Trumpkins.
