Re: Rachel Maddow of MSNBC: Statements on the Comfort and Mercy

How anyone truly know China's present number of cases is pure speculation!

Re: Corona Virus - How are you disinfecting things?

FlieG: If you want to panic then listen to a news channel, wear a mask everywhere and rub everything down with alcohol, peroxide or bleach . Well, I'm sure if you are in an area that doesn't have as many (known) active cases, then the danger is far less. But as the science shows how long the virus ...

Corona Virus - How are you disinfecting things?

Just curious how others have been disinfecting packaging, mail, etc? We started with 70% rubbing alcohol, but ran out - can only find 50% (not supposedly nearly as effective). Today, according to the CDC, 3% hydrogen peroxide is supposed to work very well ( https://www.consumerreports.org/cleaning/c...

Re: NYT: The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response

Yes, God gave us a brain, logic and expects us to use it. This idea that a few have that, God will always protect us from unnecessarily putting ourselves at foolish risk, isn't one obtained from Scripture! And when any individuals merely calling themselves a Christian (whether they are or aren't) do...

Re: NYT: The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response

Ed: but I don't know that their idiotic behavior is sufficiently common that we can characterize the whole religious right as a detriment to our pandemic response efforts. Which is why the article is just a bunch of cherrypicked, anecdotal evidence about whatever INDIVIDUALS. Just because something...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

The media just loves buzzwords (alt-right, etc.)! Then it's easy for them to categorize, demonize or easily dismiss the credibility of whatever persons or groups without truly engaging in the details or nuances. I used to know a lot of reporters because one was a roommate - plus I played softball ev...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

Here, in the city, few wear masks. The ones that do I think likely have immune problems - and hopefully aren't sick. Least for now, if I can keep the proper social, I don't wear a mask. But if I had to commute on public transportation or fly anywhere, I definitely would. But I do wear disposable glo...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

OH, brother. Obviously, EVERYONE here has biases - just depends mostly upon how they lean in values, and how consistently. None of those I tend to agree with don't sometimes blunder, speak dubiously, etc. In fact, there is legitimate criticism to be found for all news sources. But when I see someone...
