    Remember when Trump and Co. said this would all be done by Easter? That was a real hoot.

    And when Trump Junior said the economy would be rolling by mid-July? Even bigger hoot. This was not a good point by Junior.

    Cannot like this enough. How could such a thoughtful woman be the daughter of this man?

    I'd like to see a quick-glance chart of each state of WHAT'S OPEN/WHAT'S CLOSED. The similarities will far outweigh the differences.

    Utter nonsense. Tens of thousands of mild/asymptomatic people were infected in March-April-May and were NEVER TESTED. I'll say it 10,000 times, and it'll be ignored 10,000 times.

    Wait. Do you mean that this thing is real?
    The % of tests coming back positive increased in July. That’s not supposed to happen. Trumpist states are leading the way.

    % of tests coming back positive is circumstantial at best. It might mean something. It might not. Depends on the standards of those allowing tests to be done and how easy they make it. Who knows why any one person goes and gets tested? Maybe they have symptoms. Maybe it's mandatory for a job. Maybe they're planning to visit someone. Maybe they want peace of mind. Or maybe their county has just made it convenient enough to do so easily. My wife and I could go get tested tomorrow, and it would bring the percentage number down. But screw it. We don't need to.

    So what is a good measure? Are you OK with 150,000 deaths in six months?
