The best answer is on the state level. Our CDC has been regularly gutted the same way NOAA was earlier in this administration. The idea of selling the nations data to private parties to maximize private sector profit is a recurring theme. If you want to understand what’s going on you really need to look at each state.

OK so is Covid-19 as deadly as the annual flu? Is it hitting a certain demographic a little more sharply? Maybe it’s hitting the same demographic that social cuts are always targeting against. . . . I guess if you have at least an hour of free time you can draw your own conclusions using data that is varied since the best place to find it is state by state. Oh and Florida doesn’t give the age breakdown. Selective data […]

I know we rely on social and mass media to inform us, but somehow the warnings back in March to not repeat 1918 haven’t worked. I’ve been holding off on expressing this lately, but now is the time to tackle the running back with the ball, before more blood is shed: How we can unite to live in a world with COVID-19. Why we need to pay attention to the protests in Portland from a constitutional point of view. What […]
Donate to Riley’sRiver Rats. Pittsburgh’s ALS Chapter still needs funds to support those fighting their battles with ALS and the research needed to hopefully defeat ALS. If you are a friend of us you know the story and know that this is near and dear to our family. I’ll take walkers, donations, personal stories and friendly pictures on this site for the team.
When the world is not open to wild and crazy travel, you need to get creative. This post was started over the 4th of July; as you will note the American covid-19 story continues to be the story that controls the news. One thing you can do to be safe is get out in nature.
