Baylor-Houston called off; Baylor offensive lineman group all have covid. Florida State coach has it. Sports are going on, but a game can be canceled at any moment. Looks like baseball and NBA have it all under control. Weird.

It is weird. I never thought they would get the baseball season in. If all goes well, and they get the World Series in, that will be a huge accomplishment. People lament that there are no fans, but that had to help. We, as a society, just have to realize that we have to do the best we can, and also realize things will be far from perfect for a time. Do some simple things, and the situation will improve. Stay in denial and things will only linger and more people will die.

Someone a few months back got into a debate about “What more could have The President really have done to slow the spread of this thing?” 
 

This is why words matter, setting an example matters. 

OMG, comparing George Floyd’s “I can’t breathe” last words while effectively being murdered to the minor inconvenience wearing a mask to help combat the spread of COVID causes shows just how fucking stupid this country really is.  Anyone who wastes a single ounce of energy fighting the requirement for masks should be sent to a legit 3rd world country for the rest of their life so that they can experience what real problems are like.

There are still people saying masks and social distancing are not necessary. I guess you can ask Herman Cain that after he attended the Trump rally with no mask. Oh, wait. You can't. He's dead. And White House staff have been exposed although the Administration doesn't want to talk about it. Apparently one exposed works in the White House cafeteria. That is really reassuring. Someone working around food has been exposed. Yep. Who needs a mask and social distancing?

I am surprised Trump has not gotten Covid yet. He travels a lot which has to weaken the system a bit, although he probably sleeps well on Air Force One. Or maybe he's one of those rich guys who has never needed much sleep. But you'd think with all the people getting it and him not wearing a mask much, you'd think he'd get it. And at his age it might really hammer him. ... That's why as a cautious Covid person I fluctuate. I'm not crazy about getting on a plane, but then I think I probably should. Then I read about people HAMMERED by Covid and figure I'm better off remaining cautious.

(I've been very cautious; I go to church on Sunday in a socially distanced environment with masks and only 30 peeps in there spread all out I do get a haircut once a month; I go to a coffee shop prolly 4 times a week and the shop is distanced with masks but there usually are indeed a good amount of people in there; everybody's masked. I do eat out still and frankly there are less people out dining than are in that coffee shop. Haven't been out with many friends; have not flown; have not atternded any parties or family gatherings. No Covid yet. I do wear my mask all the time and have never broken any rules regarding Covid.

I pray I don't get it and pray you all don't get it. Whatever ... I am speechless regarding travel during covid, not sure if it's safe or not. It does feel like life is flying by being cooped up. The one consolation is nothing is allowed right now: can't go to a royals game; can't go to a movie or concert. So evderybody's kinda in the same boat.

Early this morning, the CDC published guidelines saying that it is confirmed COVID-19 can travel by aerosol transmission and it is possible to catch it while more than 6 feet away.

A whole bunch of people said "took too long"

6 hours later the CDC pulled those guidelines.

It was published in "error" for course that error was that they didn't want any information on Covid to make this seem any worse than they can get away with.

What the country needs is consistent and accurate information. The CDC is being compromised for political reasons. All of this just adds to the bad situation, and there is absolutely no excuse for it.

Our public grade school is back in hybrid model as of last week. Two groups of kids, group A attends in-person Monday and Tuesday while group B attends in-person Thursday and Friday. Going well so far. My sister works for an adjacent grade school and I guess they are finally preparing for hybrid as well. Apparently the parents were quite irate at the last school board meeting and made it quite clear that they were displeased with all remote.

I agree.  The politicians should stop interfering with the CDC, starting with the Presidential administration, and let them manage information as they see fit, instead of what is politically fit.

ND football team has 4 positives.  Keep on playing, maybe instead of just a messed up heart in a few of them the rest of their lives, you can get a couple of these players to die.

Good news, and the knee-slap pile-on for U of I despite them being the most well-planned college re-opening in the country was (unsurprisingly) too harsh. Mass testing does not mean no outbreaks can happen, it means you can respond to it quickly.

No animosity, it just seemed weird I had back to back replies from people I ignored and I mentioned the dreaded haircut in my post. No animosity meant. I'm sure plenty of people ignore me as well.

No one cares, you egomaniac. Fucking get over yourself, you've now taken to needling people when they don't take your bait, you actively make the board worse every time you post.

Kansas football has ZERO positive cases of COVID-19 in its football program as of 4 pm. today. I mean Kansas State had 30 last week. WTF is goin on? I know sometimes college coaches and admins lie, but not for something this serious.
