    Finally my state is reporting infection rates by community and tailoring reopening plans accordingly - red, orange and yellow. But the statewide mandate for masks AKA placebos remains in effect.

    Masks work. But you know that You just donít like them.

    Iíve had a few friends ask that on Facebook. Short answer, no, I donít think so. For several reasons. First, since heís incapable of sympathy or empathy I canít imagine him trying to get either from other people. Second, he hates looking weak. Third, if neither he nor Melania show symptoms he will just be called a liar, yet again, because the chances of both of them getting it but being asymptomatic are vanishingly small.

    Given that no one in the west wing has been practicing good covid safety we are likely watching how a super spreader situation unfolds in real time. I expect that the names of the infected from the White House will be littering the news for the next several days.

    To win reelection or failing that to escape the law. He's pretty good at faking empathy like in 2016 for those laid off by trade agreements and the towns left behind by them (worthy of course of genuine empathy, but a naracissist could also pull it off, they often can).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Calling masks "placebos" is ignorant. At best...

    Except that a sizable majority think heís handled the pandemic poorly. The fact that he got infected is just more proof of that. The only people I can imagine feeling pity for him getting infected are the people who were already planning to vote for him. Suburban women, the people he needs to persuade to come back to the Republican Party are not likely to feel much pity that heís gotten infected with a disease that they themselves worry about their families getting.

    I have no pity for him. Whatever ... heís an ass and I really donít care. This goes in direct opposition to my usual ďunconditional positive regardĒ ethos. But itís how I feel.

    The worst thing coming out of this would be if he infected Biden at the debate. Which in my current cynical viewpoint would support the idea that only the good people suffer.

    Both Bidens just had negative tests, thank goodness.

    How many of his credulous followers scorned basic precautions--notably masks--and were infected, suffered long-term sequelae, or died?

    Seems Trump's overweening arrogance finally caught up with him.

    Has crazy Doctor Atlas been tested?

    I’m glad it’s going to probably be at least a month before I have to go up to WI for my cavern/cave diving class. The positive rate up there has gone through the roof.

    All of these early negative tests are not that reassuring. False negatives are common early in the course of covid. The only correct response is that anyone exposed needs to quarantine for 2 weeks. Even if they have a negative test,
