 Well, where the hell do I begin?? I won’t even go into much of the covid-19 business cuz it changes every day and now all aware that we have a pandemic. Scary Clown tried hard to keep us from knowing anything but word is out. I truly hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.  May we all adjust calmly to this new world and help and love one another.

An animal sanctuary in South Carolina is asking for volunteers to cuddle rescue pigs. At least 75 of the pigs that were taken out of harm’s way from a farm in Kentucky have been adopted.
*****
Stegosaurus footprints thought to be 170 million years old were found on the Isle of Skye. This is the first evidence of these modest sized cuties in Scotland.

A Federal court has granted a request by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe to strike down federal permits for the Dakota access pipe line. The U.S. Army corps of engineers violated the National environmental policy act when it affirmed federal permits for the pipeline. The court found that there were significant unresolved concerns about the potential impacts of oil spills and their likelihood to take place. It took 4 years but the tribe’s experts on technical analysis proved their case. Now the corps must work up a full environmental impact statement.

A lot has happened in the democratic race since last I wrote. Buttigieg is out but his breakfast with the Carters was a wonderful thing to see. Klobuchar is out, Bloomberg is out, Gabbard is out, Kemp is out and they all back Biden. Warren is out and keeping mum. It seemed that once Biden started to take most of the delegates and the others all started dropping that there was a shift. The political pundits and hosts started turning on Bernie. Were they just waiting for all this to come down?  Many of the states that Biden won are in the South and the Dems probably won’t win them anyway. They seem to love Trump even as he screws up this whole virus situation. Things seemed sort of even handed until the wind shifted.  It seems Yang and Tio Bernie had some timely ideas when they said everyone needs healthcare and about $1000 a month.  How different would the country be right now if those things were already in place?  A couple of our biggest issues would not be there. ** Do we blame the young for only being left with 2 old white guys as our choices? Did this whole big exodus of candidates begin with a “subtle” phone call from Obama to Buttigieg?
*****
Why is it that simple voting is still so hard in this country? People have fought from the beginning to be heard, to have a real democracy. Some people take it for granted and some stay home.  If a person really wants to vote, can we please make it EZ?  There are special circumstances this year and let’s hope it proves once and for all, that vote by mail is the way. People were waiting for hours to cast a vote and some primaries were cancelled.  How about Ranked choice voting?? This gives voters the option to rank candidates in order of choice. Voters pick a first choice candidate and have the option to rank backup candidates in order of their choice. If a candidate gets more than half of the first choices they win, as usual. But, if there is no majority after the first choices, the race is decided by instant run off. The candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and voters who picked candidates as #1 will have their vote count as the next choice. This continues until a candidate wins more than half the votes. It can also be used in multi winner elections like city council where they have to reach a threshold.
*****
The talk is that Bernie broke up Public Enemy. Flava Flav refused to endorse him when the rest of the band wanted to play a Bernie rally. He walked. Dr. Cornel West is also stumping for Bernie.

I have realized that nearly every tv show that has been on for any period of time mentions Manson at least once.

The new reality is a Biden /Bernie debate without an audience that I loved. That is the way they should be.  Also the late night shows are entertaining from their homes and we get to see how creative they can really be.  The Jimmy’s are reminding us of charities that need us right now. Kimmel had a photo of Dave behind him then a Vonnegut print. Nice. **Some people are worn out from working all the time like housekeepers in hospitals and nursing homes, Doctors, nurses, grocery and discount store employees. A clerk told me the other day that she was grateful for her job but a couple days of quarantine would be nice. Others are stuck at home or confined to small rooms in nursing care.  We must thank our police and emergency workers, sanitation and postal employees, the truckers, the railroad workers and all those that we can’t live without. ** Rosie O’Donnell did a fundraiser online** Divorce rates are up** We have learned that people are obsessed with their paper products. I saw a sign in a grocery store bathroom: ‘Please don’t steal the toilet paper.’ People were calling 911 to tell them they are out of T.P.** Vegas has drive thru strip shows : $100 for 10 minutes.** Bill Burr called out those of us who are ripping on the hoarders. Wall Street does it every day.
*****
All the great public engagements, the fests, the tours et al have been postponed until later dates.
*****
How different will life be when this subsides?? What will change? Will more people work from home? They should, less overhead at the office. Will this scare the public into things with more style and substance? Could we shift into different viewing habits? Can we finally get rid of “reality” shows with their ridiculous made up hillbilly diva drama? Made up, hillbilly, diva and drama can all be good things but put them together and UGH!! The amount of on line shows has soared out of necessity. Perhaps a new voice will stand out. Let’s see what sticks.** Just think about the fuel emissions that we could cut and the traffic that could be lighter if more people worked from home. Perhaps managers will make schedules that make more sense.  Many mags are going exclusively online. ** Dolly Parton will read kids stories online with ‘Goodnight with Dolly.’ ** Are the balanced well meaning people rising up to take over the evil? This world ebbs and flows, sometimes the greedy take charge and sometime our better angels win out.
*****
Zach Braff and Donald Faison are starting a podcast.
*****
Abortion providers like Planned Parenthood as well as the ACLU have sued Iowa, Ohio, Oklahoma and Alabama to ensure access to abortion during the pandemic. The states have suspended elective surgeries. The question is if time sensitive abortion is an essential procedure.
*****
Game Stop and Hobby Lobby are forcing people to work. Hobby Lobby owner David Green sent a letter to his managers. He stressed that the Lord sent a message to his wife, The Prayer Warrior. The sign told them 3 words, Guide, Guard, Groom. He wrote that ‘God is in control’ and that they will stay open now and later tighten “our” belts. Employee health be damned!
*****
The Census is temporarily suspended. Also the RNC sent out some of their propaganda mailings that said census right on them. That is one way to confuse people into reading that garbage. ** The tax deadline has been moved to July 15.** The Olympics have been postponed.
*****
It seems that Jared Leto only learned of the coronavirus in mid- March because he was on an isolated meditation journey.
*****
500 billion bailout for corporations with little accountability? Money for cruise lines which are not even based in the U.S.? I don’t think so. Funny how it isn’t socialism when they want government $.  None for the USPS who may have to close by June if they don’t get help?? WHAT?? Our country is raw and exposed. People have no savings and the rich have their hand out. The Senate bill will have long term effects and they wanted nothing for state and local problems? What?** An article said that Trump tried to buy the firm that is working on the vaccine. Is that true?** It seems like they want the people who can afford it to hoard all the T.P. to get a nice check and not much for the bottom who really need it. The republicans put in a little gem to lift restrictions for 3 years on losses that were limited in the 2017 tax cut. The move could result in $170 billion in tax breaks for real estate investors. This of course includes Trump and Kushner.  You got to hand it to them, even with people falling all around them, they can keep a clear head to continue their greed. I suppose that is a skill.  Word is Kushner told his tenants that they must keep paying their rent as he asks for a little leniency from his creditors.  As a wise man recently said to me, ”Sounds like America!”** The bill has now been signed so we will see how it all plays out. **Did the government really send 170 broken ventilators to California yet send seven times the face shields requested to Oklahoma?? Stupidity, mistake or on purpose??
*****
Michael Cohen claims that Trump instructed him to pay tech firms to rig polls in his favor.
*****
The stories of generosity are there too. Angelina Jolie has donated a mil to charity along with many other celebs and civilians. We can do without human contact for a while but it will be needed for children, for faith and the frightened. ** Abbott, an Illinois based company claims they have a 5 minute portable test for the virus that they plan to roll out in April with 50,000 tests a day. The initial small amount of research is good but we have yet to see the accuracy on a large scale.
*****
Tax payer money should be used to bail out people, not corporations. –Robert Reich
*****
The word is that ventilators are not easy to mass produce. Sone companies won’t even be able to get to out orders for months because China put in orders first. **College gymnasiums are being converted to wards. Jerry Falwell Jr. wanted to keep his school open but they have decided to halt classes and just leave study areas open at Liberty U. **
*****
“Thank God Trump is managing this corona flu like you would expect from a successful CEO V a career politician.” –Jerry Falwell Jr. ** From Murdoch to Trump to Falwell, what is it with these greedy sons??
*****
Thank God we have a President who knows how to take charge.” –Franklin Graham** The good news on Graham is that he did ship a field hospital to Italy.  His Samaritans purse is also helping with those in Central Park.
*****
Thank God some of these pastors who insist on holding services are getting arrested.  They are not the only non -essentials staying open and endangering us though so I hope they soon shutter as well.
Intel chair Richard Barr, Diane Feinstein and others sold off major stocks a week before the stock market crash.  Sen Loeffler’s husband is the CEO of the NYSE. It’s funny that they had briefings on the virus and yet told us that all was well. ** Sean Spicer was at some WH briefings to ask questions.
*****
It only took a deadly virus to halt school shootings. – Romy Reiner
*****
Trump gave China 18 tons of respirators, gauze, gloves and other equipment.
*****
About 60% of these pathogens come from animals. Things that may be harmless to them could kill us.  As we tear down their habitats, they have to go somewhere and sometimes it is right in our own backyards. Are we killing ourselves with virus because of our own denial of climate change and the destruction of the homes of these wild animals?
*****
Is this true? The PINO (President in name only) and his campaign told tv stations that they could lose their licenses if they air a political ad that contains his own quotes.
*****
Joe Rogan had a hissy fit about people singing’ Imagine’. Why do people lose their minds every time this song rises to the surface again??
*****
DR. Rand Paul was having lunch with other Senators, swimming in the pool and working out while he awaited the results of his coronavirus test. ** So many are staying put, so many have to be out there caring for others or keeping us supplied and this moron can’t follow some simple steps.  Let us please get these bozos out of office. They can’t look out for themselves, let alone the rest of us. **  FU congressman Tom Markie.
*****
Some are speculating that Pence will be out and Nikki Haley will be in.** Will there be any debates if it comes down to Trump and Biden? I don’t think Trump will let go of all this crap about Joe and his son and it will get really ugly. Oh yea, too late! ** The furries, the young and the Latinos seem to love Tio Bernie.
*****
Genesis is reuniting.
*****
The Friends reunion has been postponed.
*****
How many times do we hear true crime shows say, “disposed of like trash” and “It don’t happen here.” Hey, law enforcement, horrible crime happens everywhere, get used to it and be ready !!
*****
Charges against Russian firms for interfering in the elections that were filed by Mueller have been quietly dropped. ** The DOJ has asked congress to give them emergency powers. It is like the patriot act all over again. Look out!
*****
Don’t forsake those duties which keep you out of the nuthouse. –Katherine Houghton Hepburn

Harvey Weinstein got 23 years and tested positive for the corona virus and it ain’t over yet.
*****

*****
Humanity Forward is Yang’s new non- profit starting with giving 3 mil to ordinary people.
*****
No Time to Die has been moved from an April release to a November release. I am sure it is the first of many as people are sheltered in place.** The GLAAD awards with no audience, No SXSW or NBA.  Many productions have been halted. ** Every American can get tested regardless of insurance if you can find a test, that is.** Dr. Zeek Emanual tells us this could go on for 2 years. Projections show we could lose 4 times as many people as we did in WWII.  We lost 1000 in a month and in 48 hours that was up to 2000. ** Which one of Trump’s donors will get the contract to make more test kits? Is that the hold up on supply? ** Alex Jones and Jim Baker were both trying to sell coronavirus cures. The government has asked them to stop.
*****
Bill Gates has stepped down from Microsoft’s Board of directors.
*****
HBG has cancelled Woody Allen’s book after a walk out.
*****
Meghan McCain is pregnant.
*****
Mulvaney is out and Mark Meadows has left congress to become the new Chief of staff.  Can we just let all the X presidents into the WH and let them take over before we are all dead??
*****
In the foreseeable future, I will be a dead person. I want to remind you that dead people are people too. There are good dead people and bad dead people. Some of my best friends are dead people. Dead people have fought in every war. –Tom Davis
