Our beloved Governor is fond of telling lies. One of his favorites on coronavirus is that everyone thinks Minnesota’s data is so good. Anyone who has tried to do even the most basic analysis on important aspects of the epidemic would beg to differ. Having crawled around a few other state’s CV-19 sites, I know Minnesota is actually pretty dreadful for either completeness or transparency of data. I mentioned North Dakota a week or so ago. A reader in Mississippi, MT, alerted me to that state’s site, so I took a look. This is really embarrassing for a state at the other end of the river that thinks it is so advanced and enlightened, but the Mississippi site is indeed far more informative. I mean way better. Take a look for yourself. (Miss. Site)
Several of you noticed that a post that you got notice of was not available. My technical ineptitude hit new highs today; I hit publish on that post instead of save draft. It needs charts. A lot of very interesting analysis will be available shortly when several posts are formatted for wordpress with charts.
