If we have a brokered convention

How the hell is Sanders expecting he will be able to convince delegates to put him over the threshold when him, his surrogates and supporters have been bashing the democratic party "establishment " all along ?
That does not seem like a winning strategy...

Biden's surprise ray of hope in California.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Despite Joe Biden's weak polling in California, there’s a silver lining emerging for him in the biggest delegate prize on the board this week.

Biden’s weakness after a distant second finish in Nevada could have compelled Californians who have been voting since the Iowa caucuses to support a moderate alternative who was doing better at the time. But there's a big upside for Biden: A huge number of them haven't voted yet. The portion of returned ballots at this stage is much lower than in recent elections — and his campaign is counting on a late surge of support among those holdouts after his dominant performance on Saturday.

I'm worried about Bernie's health.

He is not my first choice but I don't want him to get another health scare. He is hunched on the podium, red faced and sweaty. He should really slow down a bit and take care of himself.

53 % to 14 % with the absentee votes.

For Biden vs Sanders. That was before his good debate performance and Clyburn endorsement. He is going to absolutely clean the tables tonight. It's now possible he wins every county.

COVID-19 in France. Its in the hospitals now

I am worried for my elderly mother still living there. The French authorities just announced that two medical professionals from a hospital in Paris tested positive.

They are now in quarantine and being treated in yet another hospital.
Another hospital had his ER department all quarantined and shut down because of suspected cases there.

A catholic priest was sick and tested positive after his return from Italy.

Hospitals and churches are where many elderly people congregate. That is not looking good.

I am fully expecting we will face the same thing here given how inept the Trump administration is.

I'm surprised Trump is still doing rallies.

He has one this evening. He is a known germaphobe. How come he is not worried about catching Covid-19 ? Does he actually believe his own hype ?

First snow of the winter.

Its snowing right now in southeastern Virginia. First time this winter. Its supposed to just be a few inches, should not be an issue.

This time I checked my emergency generator is good to go.
Last time we lost power, I found I had stale gas in there and had to take it apart and clean the carburator during the storm..
