  1. Perhaps "treatments" would have been a preferable term to "cure." And, yes, I'd be very interested...
  2. Warm weather will slow it... Abundance of tests will help us pinpoint pockets... People who have had the virus from mild to severe will develop immunity... Vaccines and treatments will be readily available sooner than we think... I'm not saying we're over the hump yet, but we're getting there...
  3. True... And Disco Demolition Night and White Sox uniforms with shorts...not to mention Eddie Gaedel...
  4. I remember that...he also wanted to cut the number of ball needed for a walk to 3, and the number of strikes needed for a strikeout to 2... He and Bill Veeck were 2 really innovative guys, but about half of their ideas bordered on crackpot...
  5. I think with the research that indicates a slowing of the spread of the virus in the summer months, and the vaccines(s) and cures getting "fast tracked" we'll be ok...
  6. Showtime has a free preview until 4/4 I think, and I just saw this... "Perfect in 76" I downloaded it On Demand to watch later...Anyone else seen this? Is it good?
  7. To be honest, I do think stopping all cars that have NY license plates and sending the National Guard door to door is a little extreme...
  8. I think everyone is taking it seriously, but between the disinformation (which is despicable by the way), the misinformation, and the idiotic "panic" that people are exhibiting through hoarding and the like, it's made this whole thing into a circus... Now is not the time to panic...it's time to act. Do what you can do to keep your family and yourself safe (and I'm confident you're already doing that). Try to be a good neighbor and friend. I understand in some of the things I've personally done (give blood) there's a risk, but life is filled with risks. I'll take a calculated risk for what I think is the greater good. I pray for your little boy and your family every day. I'm fortunate in the fact that beyond limiting our going out, this hasn't and probably won't affect my wife and me much, but I'm not blind to the fact that this is a total catastrophe for a lot of folks... And I pray for them, too...
  9. I did figure out pretty early that "Exotic Joe's" enterprise didn't have much of a dental plan...
  10. I don't watch much TV beyond sports and news, and 50% of my enjoyment of TV has been pared, so started looking for new things to watch... My wife heard on Today, or GMA, or one of those goofy shows she watches about a Netflix show called "Tiger King" which is about people who own big cats or run roadside zoos featuring them, so we gave it a go... I'll say this, if they ever fire up freak shows at the circus again, there must be an audience for them...These people were beyond belief... So, still looking...
  11. Doing some great looking swordfish steaks my wife got at HEB today...
  12. Little known fact, but IU has twice as many Helms Basketball championships as Purdue (1976 and 1981...of course both were backed up on the court with "real" championships...Helms stopped awarding them in 1982) even with IU getting cheated out of the 1940 Helm banner when we won the tournament, but Helms gave their award to USC.

  13. And that's it, isnt it? Not to sound macabre or insensitive, but we (our government) has to make decisions that either give the appearance of "letting the chips fall where they may" by keeping society running the way it always does, and sacrificing lives in the process, OR taking away freedoms while at the same time grossly affecting the financial well being and quality of life for a large number of people. I guess where most people stand is where they have the most skin in the game. I look @Billingsley99 and I would be petrified if I was in his shoes, having a son with a compromised immune system. He's also looking at a financial impact. But speaking as a father myself, the financial part would be insignificant if I were in his shoes, and I'm sure it is to him and his family...I'd want society locked up tighter than the nuts on a new bridge. On the other hand, there are people who are going to come out if this absolutely ruined financially...I feel for them as well...it really sucks to see a lifetime of work get crushed in this vise. So, I'm ok with shelling out the trillions it's going to take to strike that balance. To me, it's not political at all. Or it shouldn't be. We're Americans. We step up to the plate with courage and conviction. Let's just not worry about "blame" right now...
  14. Thanks for starting this thread, mile... Jay was always a favorite... I only wonder what might have been... Good read on Jay's saga...
