Lileks’ disorientation

It seems normal, even in burned and looted Minneapolis…

“But it’s not normal, because there is a ravening spirit still at work. Diminished, now wrecking its way through the culture, erasing careers and TV shows and movies – a sudden gust of something that has been whistling through the cracks for years, and is overdue for rebuking. I don’t know what form that would take, or if it will happen.”

Not as long as anti-Israel, anti-Jew Blacks Lives Matter is still raging and extorting blood money for the Dimocrat Party

90 percent chance with drug Trump touted

Fergawdsakes I hope you’re not paying attention to the Lamestream Media on what’s good to prescribe and what’s not with the WuFlu.

Texas reopening

Gov. Greg Abbott gave permission this afternoon for every local stay-at-home order to expire this Thursday. He’s also reopening this Friday, May 1, retail stores, movie theaters, malls and restaurants, limiting the number of customers and staff to 25 percent of occupancy. Social distancing and masks advised but not required.

Barbershops, hair and nail salons, bars and gyms can reopen later, May 18, two weeks away dammit, as my hair and toenails grow longer and shaggier. But it’s good to be getting the hungry back to work, and to begin to save the small businesses that have survived so far.

Thank you, KXAN for live broadcast of the guv, and Texas!

Rule 5: Ashley Alexiss

The calming Dr. Birx

The WaPo, second only in uselessness to the world’s most over-rated newspaper, i.e. The NYSlimes, hopes to scare as many as possible. Because that sells newspapers?

Says Dr. Deborah Birx, of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force:

“Please, for the reassurance of people around the world, to wake up this morning and look at people talking about creating DNR situations — do not resuscitate situations for patients — there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.“

Nor is it likely to, though time will tell.

Twitter prescription

This from an RN on Twitter, seems like sound advice. Don’t know that I need it, but you never know and I will be seventy-six next week—albeit with no underlying illnesses:

“Things you should *actually* buy ahead of time (Erm, not sure what the obsession with toilet paper is?): Kleenex, Acetaminophen (Tylenol) in 350 mg tablets, Ibuprofen (Advil) in 200 mg tablets, Mucinex, Robitussin or DayQuil/NyQuil, whatever your cough medicine of choice is.”

And for self-treatment advice:

“For symptom management, use the meds I mentioned. For a fever over 101, alternate Tylenol and Advil so you’re taking a dose of one or the other every 3 hours. Use both cough suppressants and expectorants (most cough meds have both). Drink a ton, hydrate hydrate. Rest lots.”

No ER visit unless none of this works.
