Several readers asked if I could repost the editorial about the response to the epidemic without the introductory paragraphs from the earlier post, to make it easier for sharing. So here it is again.
Alerting readers again that on Tuesday I am giving a talk to the Edina Morningside Rotary Club, all virtual thanks to the Governor. The talk with walk through a presentation and discuss what we know about transmission, infection, the shape of the epidemic, adaptive immunity and government responses. Upon completion the talk and the presentation will be posted on the usual internet sources. I will provide a link on Tuesday as soon as I have it. Hopefully this will be an educational document and something everyone can share for those who prefer to get their information in visual/audio form.
Back before this blog became part of the coronamonomania, I always used holidays as an occasion to remind people to focus on what is most important in all our lives–family and friends. Live is all too short and goes by all too quickly and the moments that give us the greatest joy are with those other humans with whom we share this ineluctable and ineffable journey. So please allow yourself, require yourself to find those moments today and relax and be happy. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Looks like my editorial was all too prescient and probably too kind based on what the New York Times had to say about our Dear Leader’s idiotic edict about Thanksgiving gatherings. In any event, please, please, gather as you wish and relax and enjoy a few hours away from this madness.
Words cannot adequately describe the deeply cynical press conference held by the Governor last week on mental health.
