Pronoun comedy

“Soon, however, the conflict erupted again when Meriwether forgot and said, “Mr. Doe.” Even though he immediately corrected himself, the damage had been done. Doe again complained about Meriwether’s unequal treatment of students in class, saying that (s)he might hire a lawyer and bring a Title IX action against the university if something weren’t done about the professor.”

Really quite ludicrous, except for the suppression of free speech. Screw the little twerp and the judge who found for him. Her. It.

“Orders” from the pols

Travis County has now joined Austin city in “ordering” us residents to stay home from midnight tonight until April 13. To try to slow the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.

We can go to the grocery, the doctor, do outdoor exercise, and etc “that contribute to the health of the public” but not, apparently, go to work. That should effectively kill many small businesses, which will not “contribute to the health of the public” employed by them.

President Trump has suggested (not ordered) a return to work by Easter, a week later than which is the 13th, to save the economy. Not to mention the livelihoods of so many people. Small business carries half of America’s employment.

Death Panel in Italy

It’s a blanket one: No one over 60 gets a hospital breathing machine should their condition require it. Triage, in other words. Front-line stuff.

Rule 5: Aliss Bonython

Leave it to the daily…

…the very struggling leftist daily, to join the news media herd and play PC identity games in whacking Trump for his calling the Wuhan virus the China virus. Oh, grow a pair why doncha, you sheep, you scolds?

UPDATE:  Conservative magazine The Epoch Times prefers “Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus” for the disease sweeping the globe. Credit where credit is due.

Grocery wars

Bar came back from Randall’s with a sad tale of an elderly woman crying because there was no toilet paper and a young man stealing something from another young man’s cart when he wasn’t looking. Many shelves bare but store PA system, words in lieu of usual music, says restock on Monday.

Most “naturally immune” to Wuhan

“In Wuhan, where the virus first emerged, the whole population theoretically was at risk of becoming infected, but only 3% were.

“The Diamond Princess cruise ship represented the worst-case scenario in terms of disease spread, as the close confines of the ship offered optimal conditions for the virus to be passed among those aboard. The population density aboard the ship was the equivalent of trying to cram the whole Israeli population into an area 30 kilometers square. In addition, the ship had a central air conditioning and heating system, and communal dining rooms.

“’Those are extremely comfortable conditions for the virus and still, only 20% were infected. It is a lot, but pretty similar to the infection rate of the common flu,’ Levitt said. Based on those figures, his conclusion was that most people are simply naturally immune.”
