Me, I'll be waiting for the retractions published on page 32, in tiny print.

From reading things around here the past few days it looks like I should be heading down to the tracks and wait for the Double E and thank Trump for all that is wrong with the world.

Meanwhile, Warby Parker is closing all of their brick and mortars indefinitely at 6 pm today.  I has a developing case of the sniffles to boot.  Or is it the other thing ?  Won't take long to tell.

I like the suggestion of getting gift cards from local establishments, to give them the funds to hold them over. Some can even be purchased online.

Weather the storm with loving kindness. In isolation or in togetherness. Me, Ive been basically living in seclusion for some years, with some very limited social contacts, once or twice a week, mostly my kids and mom, and my girlfriend. Living by myself since 10 years. What the world could need would be solidarity, and taking care of elderly neighbors, or the helpless in general.

Spirituality as in meditation has been a great boon in my life. Going inside, into that inner stillness has helped me a lot. Hard to put in words what it has done in my life. It made me stronger than I'd ever thought possible.

Just my 2 cents, friend.

Britain is now a control group for epidemiologists.

Background:

I'm an epidemiologist. When I heard about Britain's 'heard immunity' coronavirus plan, I thought it was satire
...

Also:

Some easy to understand graphs show what will happen to the UK.

You say. Repeat, repost, regurgitate, because the story says what you want to hear.

It seems you're not very familiar with how real journalism is supposed to work.  BTW... ever heard of Gawker Media ?    I'd guess no.

This instance of pandemic is giving world governments an unprecedented opportunity to exercise politics of suppression via an exemplary advice of social distancing, etc. due to corona. There have been other instances, like this one during my childhood, which I don't remember. No schools were being closed, then. 

The media, concerted worldwide into more or less one voice with headlines being same all around the globe play their dirty role in distributing fear and terror into everyone's hearts. Citizens rights are being restricted on a global scale, and be it through states of national emergency or infectious disease acts, citizens rights are being infringed upon like never before. They do not want people to gather and like to root out any uprising before it even starts.

Tomorrow in Paris, the Yellow Vests are planning a bigger march, heavy police forces are presumptively sent in already (since large gatherings are forbidden). The National Guard is deployed in the state of NY, etc. - Police rights and surveillance are aggressively being extended all over, often silently 'behind the curtain', while corona fear is taking all the headlines...

To really fight a pandemic, it needs (undrained and unstrained) efficient public health systems, which are practically nowhere existing in the west. Instead of doing something, or anything about it, the opposite is what politicians seem to be aiming at. In my country, with hospitals and nursing homes heavily understaffed and stressed out long before this, the minister of health just lowered(!!!) the minimum staffing rules for hospitals to "help" cope the crisis, a week ago. Of course, most of them are private institutions. ~ The mantra of "helping the economy" fill their own pockets is still holding sway. Long live the oligarchs.

How long?
