So, it’s official as of today
(Source. As an aside, this ‘worldometers.info’ site is a clinic on how to present and visualize data at scale.)
Eight-three thousand cases, and no sign of let-up after 2 solid weeks of “shelter-in-place” or “stay-home-pretty-please”

POTUS 45 is doing his best impression of Der Furher in the bunker in ‘45, railing against his enemies and making little sense during daily

Just unable to focus again today. Whitney’s sick–we hope it’s nothing–and just couldn’t get “bite” into the work.

Some long days lie ahead, unaided by today’s low productivity.
