All this stuff about Who Fucked John back in Jan-Feb, or what weird concoction might be effective about Covid, is a distraction from why does potus consider the current sparse level of testing adequate?

No testing means no cases. People who die without testing are not Covid deaths

As the CINC himself said,”I like the numbers where they are.”

Damn. Poor New York. They just got slammed so badly. I think it’s a reflection of so many international flights transporting infected people, long before there were any travel bans.

Just back-of-envelope stuff, but I get an impression that while NY covid deaths are slowing down (thank dog), US-minus-NY covid deaths (today around 10,000 aggregate) are at around 1.125 and picking up.

Arrr! SATs -- I forgot the SATs. All of my family are either far too young or past that stage (by a lot!) and likewise even the young'uns I know.

HTH are they going to do that this year?

My oldest grandchild will be taking them this fall, I think. The youngest is just 5.

I hope I live long enough ( with all, or most, of my marbles) to see all the grandkids head off to college.

Warning, don’t listen to this if you have an SAT test coming up, because it will take time for your mind to recover

I'm finding that the national supermarket chains don't ever have delivery dates available. The statewide chains are delivering 10 days from now assuming you happen to look at their website as soon as they open new dates. There is a small local owned market that does not deliver, but actually seems to have product most of the time (except of course any paper goods).

We are averaging about 5 days out at Wegmans. Fortunately the Instakart shoppers are happy to add stuff as they’re shopping, because I never know exactly what I’ll need 5 days from now (except for wine)
