I believe that someone was confused.  We are making a play for Gonzalo Veron and hope to lure Jeff Parke out of retirement.

Meanwhile, in TX, with triple the population they have just 1,300 deaths and a flattened curve.   All sorts of obvious reason for that, but you can understand why people outside the Metro area have a different perspective on things.

Well, the curve hasnt exactly been flattened in Texas.  The NYT today had a graph showing that cases in Texas are rising pretty precipitously.

Im positive for COVID-19. I found out my results on Tuesday. Let me tell you: it sucks.

I have been sick for six days, but luckily have been spared the worst symptoms. My pulmonologist started me on Kaletra and Plaquenil immediately (in fact, he starred me on the Kaletra before I even had my positive test results, because I am in an at-risk category). I have no doubt that this timely intervention was key to minimizing my symptoms. I had developed difficultly breathing and a fever, which the drugs seem to have sorted out. Not everyone has access to such exceptional care, sadly. So, others will not be so lucky.

However, its been no walk in the park. Ive had diarrhea since Sunday, am constantly achy and can barely keep my eyes open. No amount of sleep does any good. So, please, do what you can to: a) avoid getting it yourself; and b) avoid passing it on to others who might be more at risk than you are.

Im not going to feel into your delusions. Enjoy having fun with the rest of the group.

These boards need a good protagonist.

I miss the good old days of HarrabyLad and Onionsack!
