    I'm trying to figure out if ultimate, galaxy brain greg is that because covid will kill everyone, it is dictatorial to make us wear a mask or try and shelter us in our final days.

    https://www.bleedingheartland.com/static/media/2020/05/IDPH-Whitepaper-Update-on-the-Current-COVID-19-Situation-in-the-State-of-Iowa-1.pdf The University of Iowa doesn't seem to be endorsing the governor's plan.

    It would seem that any sort of consistent leadership and messaging from the federal level would have helped!

    I know there's been a lot of discussion that its difficult to envision a world where Biden is up five nationally but that far behind in their selection of battleground states

    In the small victories column, I've made a concerted effort to take at least two walks a day of around a mile and a half each (unlike Lawrence, Kansas, we are allowed outside), and between that and making food at home, I've lost seven pounds of bad weight.

    This is a really good listen with much more Joe Borchard than I expected

    He 100% said the initial boxes he lifted were empty but still wanted to do it for the cameras; whatever, politicans do photo ops all the time, far from the worst thing he or any politician has done. Are you at least ready to admit the anti-Semitic signs at the rally earlier this week were real?

    I'll say that the longer I'm around here, the more I appreciate long timers like you and fathom. fathom might complain a touch, but I also think he's one of the smartest baseball minds on the board. I love the diversity of content and thought you bring, even if its a tad scatter brained at times. The information you have brought here from the pandemic that has started in China has given us a pretty unique look at everything.

    i would like the administration here at soxtalk to start gaslighting us as well "the boards were down for an hour" "no, they weren't" -- "i don't trust the sox pitching, they are awful" "of all the people pitching for the sox, they are turning in the best performance" -- "greg keeps talking in the third person" "we are fairly sure that he is freely intermixing stories of another friend named greg"

    it's almost like the country got what it voted for (in an electoral sense)

    Iowa now up over 10,000 cases, more than well-known smaller midwestern states like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri. Maybe there's a reason Trump is now up only 2 points and Joni Ernst is now only up 1 point in the latest state poll. Our governor "trusts Iowans to do the right thing" though.

    I was sort of hoping all the games would be available on ESPN+ or something, but, sure, yeah, go Samsung

    Yeah, I remember when anti-Semitism ended too. Thank God that's just a common German phrase that we all know and love.

    740 new cases today in Iowa, 8 deaths. The 740 is a high for Iowa, on the day 77% of the state relaxes limitations. No clue what percentage of total tests were positive, though its claimed they were at places they expected high numbers. This state's leadership continues to show to be unprepared, but, hey, at least we partnered with some testing system the governor heard about from Ashton Kutcher. Today's press conference featured a speaker from a conservative, religious PAC in the state as well. Reynolds had the sixth lowest approval of covid handling of any governor (still at 54%), and a lot of people are confused as to what exactly we are doing here.
