As of yesterday, the number of Covid - 19 cases in Pennsylvania stood at 1687. That's a spike of 560 cases in 24 hours. Cumberland County is up to 15. Conservatives still don't get it. The believe this thing is going to end in a week or so... I am serious. The nod their heads every time the Idiot Jerk speaks. For him he is the truthsayer. Their inability to understand he's a lying sack of shit will be the death of them... well, some of them, not all of them, but probably enough of them to shake their little Conservative world. They look at Spain and Italy and shake their heads... "so heartbreaking," they say. In their heads it's 'over there,' it's 'not here.' The can not even conceive of how infectious this thing really is, or that a lack of social distancing is going to increase the rapidness of its spread.
Whereas the Idiot Bush had his Katrina, Covid - 19 is going to be the Idiot Jerk's Vietnam. The reality is we may lose over 58,000 Americans.
You have to look on the bright side, however, those taking the necessary precautions, who are avid about practicing Social Distancing are Democrats and Republican. We keep a distance of at least 6 feet between us, and the scratch their heads. We wash our hands and they scratch their ass. We'll be keeping ourselves safe and secure and they'll be crying at Granny's funeral... well, they're going to learn funerals are going to become passe. They'll find out that anyone touching Granny while she was alive is too sick to attend.
On a brighter note, "The Body in the Well" is heading into it's final edit. I talked to Cori yesterday and reminded her that April is fast approaching. Let's be honest here, reading a new mystery / thriller might be the best way to spend some of that self-quarantine time. Since I like to let readers know which songs have found their way into the manuscript, this is the last song from which I've sampled lyrics. Don't you just wonder how this could play into the story line.
