So my favorite grocery store announced last night a worker tested positive for CV

They won't say who. I don't mean name of course, just that I'd feel safer if it was a truck unloader vs the butcher.

Anyway getting delivery today and thought I'd look up " should you wash your groceries".

Get a video of Sanjay Gupta. Said you can use any kind of spray cleaner you want. Doesn't have to have virus killing ingredients or be hot and sudsy water This makes zero sense to me. Why wouldn't be the same as your hands?

I don't know who is monitoring stimulus $, but my dinky little airport got $18 MILLION

https://www.wacotrib.com/news/local/waco-regional-airport-getting-18-million-in-federal-relief-money/article_7320737f-c6ed-5f32-a7ff-02e87ba50ac2.html

Waco. 6 flights a day on small AA jets, (down to two). Twenty five min flights back and forth to DFW. Two gates. In better times, they have poor delay % and high cancellation rates. Many times end up driving to Dallas or will miss connection.

Other airports:
Elsewhere in the region, Robert Gray Army Airfield in Killeen will receive $2.2 million, Skylark Field in Killeen will receive $30,000, Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional in Temple and McGregor Executive in Waco will each receive $69,000, and the Texas State Technical College Waco airport will receive $1,000.

The amount of the new relief grants was determined by an FAA formula factoring in operational costs, revenue and combined debt service, which the city-run airport does not have.


He said he is not sure what other projects the money will be used for at the moment, but he has a list of ideas he will review with FAA officials before deciding.

TrAbbott opening up Texas a little bit

AUSTIN (AP) — Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Friday began a slow reopening of Texas with orders that allow retail shops to sell items curbside, lets visitors return to state parks and puts doctors back in operating rooms after they were banned for weeks from performing nonessential surgeries.

This Republican tactic to act like they care about suicide and drug/alcohol abuse is such bullshit

If after reading, you still feel one way or another, cool.

The actual WHO report Jan 20 2019

Trump Didn't Like Azar's Warnings. So He Disappeared Him.

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-didn-t-azar-warnings-080620165.html


The more we learn about what went on behind the scenes during the critical early days of the coronavirus pandemic, the more Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar had emerged as a rare and unlikely hero pushing the White House for an early response.

Speaking truth to power has its price in the Trump administration. The former Eli Lilly executive was shouted down by White House aides as “alarmist” and sidelined by Jared Kushner, Mike Pence and others willing to give the president a more rosy view. And on Sunday night, Trump lashed out at Azar by name for the first time, following a New York Times report that Azar had “directly warned Mr. Trump of the possibility of a pandemic during a call on Jan. 30, the second warning he delivered to the president about the virus in two weeks.”

House, Azar's future is uncertain but his attempts to get top officials and President Trump to pay attention to the coming pandemic should not be lost in the fog of war as Trump recasts history in his favor.

Almost every Democrat voted against Azar’s confirmation as health secretary in January 2018. As the president of the U.S. division of Eli Lilly, he had approved the tripling of the price of insulin and spoken out against the Affordable Care Act, insisting the free market should handle health care.

A U.S. Supreme Court first: arguments by teleconference including major one involving Trump

https://news.trust.org/item/20200413153438-tyb3y
WASHINGTON, April 13 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that for the first time it will hear cases argued by teleconference rather than in the courtroom due to the coronavirus pandemic including a dispute over whether President Donald Trump's tax and financial records should be disclosed.

Trump's appeals in three separate cases to prevent his financial records from being handed over to Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives committees and a New York prosecutor were due to have been heard on March 31 but were postponed on March 16 when the court delayed a series of cases over coronavirus concerns.
