I'm just amazed at the blatant stupidity of people in power.

She deserves to be fired just for being that stupid. I see she's a doctor. Likely hubris played a role, too.

We live in interesting times.

So now that commie pinko liberal journalists might get laid off instead of deplorables, we'd better hurry up and open the *expletive deleted*ck back up and save their jobs!

Good golly, Miss Molly!

Quote from: BuzzFeed News Union
Losing a newsroom job now isn't just a temporary setback. For many colleagues let go, this could be the end of their careers in journalism -- all the more calamitous when the work journalists do has never been more important.

"... the work journalists do has never been more important"? What a masterpiece of self-aggrandizement. How about "... has never been less important." Every  John and Jane Doe with a  cell phone is a journalist today, and anybody who's anybody has a web site or a blog or a Twitter or Facebook account. There's a reason why newspapers are hemorrhaging red ink -- it's because "journalists" today are becoming increasingly irrelevant. In a day and age when Greta Thunberg is suddenly a CNN "expert," what purpose do run-of-the-mill journalists serve?

I want to give benefit of the doubt, and assume they're doing curbside pickup or delivery, but can mall stores really do that? There's a hundred internet companies already doing a much better job of that.

I guess it's no crazier than anything else in California.

... that people are going to be even more distrustful of "SCIENCE!!!" after it's been shown to wildly and drastically wrong in this situation?

No, people will understand that... unless they BELIEVE THE SCIENCE!

I was thinking of the other irony. The fact that CNN had her on just then to talk about a pandemic is evidence that people don't really want to hear from scientists or experts - she's pretty doggone far from being either.

It's just layers of irony all wrapped around a sad joke.

Interesting chart. Note the states with higher or near equal virus deaths than flu deaths. Not that this isn't hindsight, but it's certainly food for thought regarding "one size fits all" lockdowns. Even in the case of "heavy-handed" lockdowns, look at the difference between CA and MI. Or NY, which seems to be turning into an outlier.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/no-spike-coronavirus-places-reopening-132442853.html

Quote
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Authorities are not seeing spikes in coronavirus cases in places that are reopening but are seeing increases in some areas that remain closed, U.S. health secretary Alex Azar said on Sunday.
...
Asked about images being broadcast from some areas of the country showing people gathering near bars and congregating close together, Azar said that was the cost of freedom.

Exactly.

So the nation-state of California, the 5th largest economy in the world, is complaining it's not getting enough dough from the feds to recover from the virus:

In the meantime, they got 11% of the relief money that was meant for all 50 states. Seems to me if they ever secede, they'll last about 19 days before they start issuing $100 trillion dollar bank notes ala Zimbabwe.

I went in for a physical at an urgent care place last week. I figured they would ask me to wear a mask, but they only had a sign saying "if you have such-and-such symptoms, please ask for a mask." The only thing that was different was that the staff wore masks, and asked me to wait in my car, instead of in the waiting room.

I did end up going to St Charles County last week, to get a haircut. St Louis County isn't supposed to start "opening" until next week.

Other than Menards, I still haven't seen any stores asking customers to wear masks. Actually, I just remembered I had to return a purchase at MicroCenter last week, and they had sign about their new masks-for-all policy. There was a lass handing out masks at the door, and I walked past her, then turned back to ask her where to take my return. She didn't say anything to me about masks. What woman would deprive herself the pleasure of viewing this handsome mug?  cheesy
