      I’ve been hoping to find light in the darkness at least once each day. Thank you for posting this. I had to watch it multiple times to let it sink into each stressed and hurting part of myself and replace the revulsion for Trump and his enablers with a better energy.

    Poignant Memorial Day. A grievous number of Americans needlessly dead from Covid-19 and growing. On a happier note, today is also the birthday of my husband’s youngest brother. Tim reached age 59 despite Down Syndrome.

      It’s not a beauty contest, it’s all about trying to stay safe. Biden is man enough not to care if the reporters take a picture of him with a mask on.

    John Cusack on vote for Bernie in the primaries. Something about still being able to gather enough votes for something to do with super delegates.
    Is he taking the same drugs as PP?

    If we’d acted one week earlier…meanwhile…Trump insisted nothing need be done.
    “Lockdown Delays Cost at Least 36,000 Lives, Data Show.”
    “If the United States had begun imposing social distancing measures one week earlier than it did, in March, about 36,000 fewer people would have died in the coronavirus outbreak”, according to new estimates from Columbia University disease modelers. “And if the country had begun locking down cities and limiting social contact on March 1st, two weeks earlier than most people started staying home, the vast majority of the nation’s deaths, about 83%, would have been avoided.”
    W/maps: (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/20/us/coronavirus-distancing-deaths.html)

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:18 am

      Total deaths reported March 3 2020: 65,307.
      What if this administration had acted when the virus was “two weeks younger”?
      Maddow explains that researchers took real world data and mapped it backwards in time.
      They looked at how transmission slowed down when social distancing took hold across much of the country. And by how much it would have slowed transmission if started on, or two, weeks earlier. We could have done that. By starting one week earlier, 54,000 fewer Americans would have died. Estimated deaths: 29,410. And if we’d started two weeks earlier: 11,253.

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:20 am

      Which leaves “haunting questions for the relatives of loved one who have died.”
      And a warning for the future = Don’t make the same mistake again.
      “The results show that as states reopen, outbreaks can easily get out of control unless officials closely monitor infections and immediately clamp down on new flareups. Just as we needed to stop this thing when it was small from the outset, we need to stop new outbreaks when they are small too.” (NYT)
      “Columbia University “epidemiologist Jeffrey Shaman’s team estimated the effect of relaxing all control measures across the country, the model finds that because of the lag between the time infections occur and symptoms begin emerging, without extensive testing and rapid action many more infections will occur, leading to many more deaths…” (Maddow)

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:22 am

      JEFFREY SHAMAN (Columbia University School of Public Health):
      “The important thing that we’re really trying to do here is not just look retrospectively and quantify what might have been, but to use that information to really inform how we go forward and how we have to be very vigilant with this virus. We’re not done with this pandemic by any stretch.
      Most of the country has not been exposed to it, has not been infected.
      And it’s really vital that we actively seek it out in our communities, that we monitor what is happening with the transmission of the virus in communities as we loosen restrictions and reopen the economy further and further, to make sure that we don’t have flareups. And if we identify identify growth in cases, we have to clamp down, we have to respond more quickly, because as you said if we get the virus when the outbreak is young, when it’s in the early stages, you’re going to limit the number of deaths that accrue over time.”

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:23 am

      MADDOW: “Can you explain in layman’s terms why the numbers are so dramatically affected by even a few days’ difference in response time…how does one week make such a difference?”
      SHAMAN: “Well it is very staggering…when you see how strong that response is.
      When you’re dealing with the growth of a virus in a fully susceptible population, it’s going through a doubling process, it’s growing exponentially And it’s very important to remember the doubling processes really can sneak up on you. They seem to start very small and insignificant and not be of much consequence. But they really can swell and overwhelm you, kind of like a tsunami wave.”

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:24 am

      “There are many examples that you’ll hear in Mathematics that will try to explain it very simply:
      One of my favorites is this idea that you have a pond.
      There’s this invasive lily flower that gets into it.
      And every day it doubles in size, or doubles the number that are there,
      And let’s say by day 30 the entire pond is covered with lilies.
      And the question is, well on what day was it half way covered with lilies?
      And the answer is day 29, just the day before, because it is a doubling process.”

    • May 26, 2020 at 10:27 am

      SHAMAN: “By jumping on this virus earlier, you are really going to circumvent that growth,
      you’re going to squash that growth down. And you’re going to prohibit the number of people who are going to subsequently be infected by taking early action. It’s a very strange and horrifying, compounding, process by which this goes through when it is spreading through a community. And as a consequence it’s really vital that we reach out and we monitor what’s going on in our communities actively. We can’t get complacent with this. There is a risk of that, particularly as we’re moving into summer, particularly because the virus may be seasonal and less transmissible during summer. Then we’re going to get complacent and feel like we have this thing under control. But we have to get in this for the long haul, and understand we want to keep this virus squashed. We want to really reduce the numbers to a low level of cases per day going forward, while we hold on until we can get a vaccine that’s effective or effective therapeutics.”
      MADDOW: “That key insight…that dynamic was true at the outset is also true with new outbreaks going forward. It’s a game changing understanding.”

    From the article…

    Because neither the news media nor the nation’s larger political culture has reckoned with the GOP’s authoritarian evolution, the habitual response is to mislabel GOP authoritarianism as hypocrisy. Calling out hypocrisy is a pointless shaming mechanism for a party that has broken free of shame. Worse, it camouflages a war on democracy as democratic politics as usual.

    “The very first rule of understanding an autocracy is to Believe the Autocrat.
    When someone promises that they will destroy whole peoples and intentionally wreck the environment—
    believe them. When Jair Bolsonaro was running for president of Brazil,
    he told people to call him “Captain Chainsaw.”

      Diabolical Calculations:
      GOP is gambling the re-election of Trump on ‘opening up the economy’ at any price.
      -They don’t care how many die or if they destroy the planet.
      -Suppressing the death toll data at all levels, media.
      -Suppressing voting.
      -Blame + bots.
      -imo Doom will feign a vaccine in desperation.
      Rove-ites could care less what happens after the election.
