Opening daze

March 26, 2020. All baseball fans marked our calendars – Opening Day for MLB.  And for the first time ever, all teams after Opening day will be undefeated.

 

Saints coach, Sean Payton, who says he’s been “cleared,” ie still quarantineed but has almost recovered from coronavirus, is  now spreading the word about social distancing.  “We try asking nicely….and then you still see behavior that makes you upset. Just picture everyone’s got a hand grenade on ’em — how about that? So stay away from everybody.

 

A construction worker at the site of new Raiders Stadium in Las Vegas has tested positive for coronavirus.

Must. Not. Make. Joke. About, How. No. One. Connected. To Raiders. Could. Catch. Anything.

Some Republicans want to ban abortions during Coronavirus pandemic as non-essential surgeries. So surely they would agree that we should also ban filling non-essential prescriptions like Viagra.

 

So now that Trump has tweeted “Congratulations America,” over the stimulus bill, who in the White House is going to tell Donald this doesn’t mean he can golf this weekend?

Two cruise ships with 30 sick on board will dock in Miami tomorrow. Can they be quarantined at Mar-A-Lago?

 

So looking at the death toll in New York City Trump really is killing people in the middle of Fifth Avenue and getting away with it.

As Trump talks about withholding aid from states who aren’t “nice” to him, who knew that letting him get away with quid pro quo on the Ukraine would have consequences?

Trump claimed he wanted to see Romeo & Juliet tonight at Kennedy Center, how about he just reads opening paragraph. Especially these lines:

“From ancient grudge break to new mutiny Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean?”

I thought this was a joke. It’s not. German media reports G7 leaders can’t agree on coronavirus statement because Pompeo is pushing to call it the “Wuhan virus.” How about a compromise, let’s call it “Wuhan/Trump virus?”

Once again, if someone could convince Trump that ventilators were needed to blow air to keep the New York Stock Exchange open there would be 50,000 ventilators delivered to Wall Street tonight.

Rachel Maddow talking about why Trump won’t federalize the medical equipment supply chain. Sadly, I think we know why….it might prevent his donors, friends and maybe family from profiting off this pandemic. With Donald it’s ALWAYS follow the money.

Also per Maddow,  Mississippi’s governor issued executive order overriding local #StayAtHome orders, saying that all businesses can remain open. And not long ago we thought cities that kept Confederate statues were the biggest political embarrassment in today’s South.

It’s a lot easier on the soul to watch & comment on Joe Biden . He was talking about forgiving student debt for those in public service, about how “We talk about the kids who need opportunities as if they are somebody else’s children. They are ALL our children,” and “You’re seeing the soul of America right now. With ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”

. Anyone who thinks Joe is losing it needs to find a tape of Wednesday’s entire hour. No joke. #BidenHappyHour

Biden also reminded us that 40% of hospitalizations for coronavirus are people between ages of 20 and 54. It’s not just protecting seniors, it’s self-preservation. #StayAtHome.

    There are many companies running ads on television trying to re-insure us in one way or another during this crisis. But if I hear the phase: “In these uncertain times”, one more time, I think I am going to throw-up.
