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.

The Daily Dread - Tracking the spread, 5/31/20

Limited info this morning, in the aftermath of a horrible national eruption yesterday where all these emotions that had been suppressed. Last week, through yesterday evening (as this is written anyway), all bets were off, and all the outrage over decades - even centuries - of injustice, demanded and got attention. The pot boiled over. MSNBC, my usual source, wasn't on it at all yesterday. But then again, something monumental came up and had to be covered.

All times Pacific, source: CNN - Johns Hopkins University
At 9:03am
Deaths US - 103,853

Welcome to DU, firstwife!

Glad you're here. You're right - WE have the numbers. There are more of US than there are of the bad guys (aka trump, GOP, trumpers, and the nogoodniks setting fire to our cities and looting our business districts). I hope we all remember that, and MAKE USE OF THAT ADVANTAGE in November.

Man, do we ever!

My son just said "with all that's going on, I'm just waiting for the announcement of an invasion from outer space."

Feels as though that's about the only crisis that HASN'T happened by now. I actually turned to my husband and confessed that I'm actually wondering if we're in the End Times. Seriously.

If I see any COVID-related numbers, I will report them here.

But the civil unrest in the wake of the highly-unnecessary death of George Floyd has overtaken all. Even the pandemic, where we left off, with more than 101-thousand deaths just here in the U.S.

The Daily Dread - Tracking the spread (of a different sort), 5/30/20

There is no COVID-19 data being provided on either source I look to, on this subject (MSNBC, and failing that, CNN). Not today and not yesterday either. So I can't report on any confirmed cases or deaths.

But I do have some numbers for you today.

Twenty-four. No, check that. Just added another so it's now 25.

I started a count of the cities where there's been widespread public reaction to the death of George Floyd at the hands of reckless and overzealous Minneapolis police. There are marches and citizen protests during the day. Unfortunately there have been riots and violence, vandalism and destruction once night comes, although some daylight actions have deteriorated like the one I'm watching on CNN, as I write this, on Third Street in L.A.'s Fairfax. I have now counted 25 of our major cities where one or another of the aforementioned occurrences have been noted, and covered.
