About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Depends on how many republi-CONS we can get rid of, on Capitol Hill.

the fewer of them to stand in the way, the more likely we can actually get something like this done.

VOTE, DAMMIT! And DON'T for get down-ballot!

We've not only got to take back the White House, we've gotta clean out the Senate, and fortify the House of Reps! And pick up as many governorships as possible.

BIGTIME housecleaning. We need as many of us to vote as possible!

VERY good point, sir.

Quite insightful.

Truly.

+ another 1,000,000,000.

Btw - We did pass the 9/11 death toll awhile ago, too.

If anybody's wondering:

I think they're all indicating the same statistical upward swings.

The same kinds of graphs, all indicating the same kinds of numbers, and rates of increase.

And yet ANOTHER update...

7:37am (all times Pacific)
Confirmed cases - 165,075
Deaths - 3,038.

10:06am
Confirmed cases - 173,466 - Look at that! Cases went up by approximately EIGHT THOUSAND, in roughly three hours. .
Deaths - 3,370

10:10am (just four minutes later)
Confirmed cases - 174,251
Deaths - 3,376

SHEESH - just as I'm writing this - watching the confirmed case numbers ticking upward.
10:11am
Confirmed cases - 174,265
Deaths - 3376

What a difference a few minutes makes:
10:29am
Confirmed cases - 174,278
Deaths - 3376 - well, that's good news. The death toll nationally hasn't risen. Yet, anyway.

12:04pm
Confirmed cases - 179,446 - SHEESH - rose more than FIVE HUNDRED in an hour-and-a-half!
Deaths - 3,539 - 163 more just in that same hour-and-a-half.

1:08pm
Confirmed cases - 179,792
Deaths - 3,559

AW SHIT - just jumped again...

1:13pm
Confirmed cases - 180,909
Deaths - 3,634

2:03pm
Confirmed cases - 184,057
Deaths - 3,717

Yep. We need to! And the numbers are OURS, in this!

There are MORE of us Democrats than there are GOPers.

Now the mission is - to get those majorities out to VOTE! Either in the polling places or in the mailbox!

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS GET OUT THERE AND FLEX OUR NUMBERS!

A Keeper! For absolute sure!

Every doggone one of 'em!

OUTSTANDING collection, JHB!

I went back and looked at each of them. The one of the surgeon jumping up, straining to catch one of the virus "baseballs" before it slammed into the stands, actually made me get teary-eyed.

I play this game in my mind - not just the "what would I do if I ran MSNBC?" but also, "what would I do if I was the next President?" I feel as though I might actually ask my staff to figure out how many first responders we had, struggling to cope with the coronavirus disaster, and have Presidential Medals of Freedom created for every last one of them, all across the country. Including those awarded posthumously.

And another update - and the update almost immediately had to be updated. Sheesh.

Shit. Missed it! Hopefully they and MSNBC will run a clip or two.
