Trump's reelection depends on his response to all this.
And I sincerely hope he handles this well.

Well that's just dandy.
"I dispose of obsolete meat machines.  Not because I hate them (I do) and not because they deserve it (they do), but because they are in the way and those older ones don't meet emissions codes.  They emit too much.  You don't like them and I don't like them, so spare me the hysteria."

I just called my local hospital and offered to start building these:

they said, "thanks, maybe later"

but maybe wanna pass it on.  it sounds like the "you live/you die" decisions are being made due to a lack of ventilators

We (the Chief and I) just got the 48-72hr warning on the National Guard.

It hasn't hit the press yet, don't go looking for it.

To all my Australian Discordians:

Scott Morrison, a.k.a. Scomo, released an announcement this morning. No more than 100 people in an enclosed space, don't hoard stuff, and don't go overseas. We are stuck on our itty bitty island, back to being prisoners like the convicts before us. Also, he's going to keep the schools open as long as he can.

And they ARE your friends, no matter how much they SCREAM they're NOT.

Working from Home from today, at least that is possible. My mother works accounts for a fish processing plant and they are all being laid off on Friday temporary. Not because there are no fish, but because none of the hotels are ordering.
Herself(my fiance) is now 6 weeks away from due date so we are basically not setting foot outside.

Just listen to any of these songs. Ideal lyrics for our current situation. The Common Cold is our new national anthem.
"I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me."

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

Wait, did you catch it? God, best hopes for you and the husband! Serious finger crossing on my end.

I had a thing. There's no tests and the tests that exist are trash, so every sniffle you kinda have to assume. We have at least one confirmed case in the city and something like 57 presumptive ones (with actual health care interaction) so basically between 500 and 5000 people have it and maybe more than that. There was a confirmed case at the casino one if the days the husband was there, so we have a plausible vector. Anyway, my immune system is a boss and I'm staying in to make sure I don't give this to anyone else, whether it's The Plague or just a minor bug that could still chew up resources and threaten elderly folks.
