Excess Deaths Associated with COVID-19

The death rate in Georgia (which I was clearly referring to), has not increased. It's on the decline. Why you would post that article as any form of rebuttal to my statement is beyond me. And here is a direct quote from the article you posted: "These deaths could represent misclassified COVID-19 deaths, or potentially could be indirectly related to COVID-19 (e.g., deaths from other causes occurring in the context of health care shortages or overburdened health care systems)."

That article is also littered with the word "estimates". If you took a shot eveytime you read the word "estimates", you'd be dead from alcohol poisoning, but hey, the hosptial would just "estimate" it as a death from Covid and collect another $30,000!

Just stay inside, wear your mask in your own car while driving, keep the news on 24x7 so when the CDC admits they were wrong about something else (which is happening quite frequently), you can keep waiting for "new data" and you'll be perfectly safe, ....forever and ever.

This I agree with. I think much of the lockdown we did was necessary, but essentially putting a halt to any medical procedure that wasn't COVID-19 was ludicrous. Not to mention scaring people half to death at even the thought of visiting a doctor's office or emergency room. Yes, we want to control the spread of COVID-19, but people have to be able to deal with other health issues as well.
We will never know if the lockdown was necessary. Thankfully it’s behind us and hopefully is never repeated.

Not here it isn't. The lockdown very much continues.
Come on down to Georgia! Cheers from the bar of an open restaurant!

Please don't take that as any form of insult. Honestly wishing you the best as I raise my glass. I'm not sure where you're located but hopefully the lock down will soon end for you and you can (safely) get back out when you're ready!

Thanks. I guarantee you that I'm off to the bar once this is over!

OK we got our opening dates for WDW, that’s nice, but these opening phases will not be magical. It’s reported on Twitter there were 6 hour lines to get into the world of Disney in Disney Springs today.

When WDW opens there will be the regular swarm of local Disney vloggers to show us all what it’s like and I appreciate that.

We will see what it’s like, but my feeling the socially spaced queues will be long for everything. The “reduced capacity” will not help.

So folks can choose not to go to WDW because they fear getting COVID, or bringing COVID that’s fine and valid, but fear aside, during these initial phases, it’s just not going to be a good guest experience. That is also a valid reason.

For folks who want to go in the initial stages, excellent! I hope I am wrong and its a good experience. I am looking forward to seeing what it’s like watching YouTube from my air conditioned home.

I have been working on some home projects while in my quarantine status and I discovered today that I needed a few supplies from Lowe's. I made a trip down to my local Lowe's wearing my mask. I found my needed supplies and then stood in line to pay. All of the cash register lanes had social distancing squares spaced about 6 feet apart and I joined the line on my square three people back from the cash register.

As I was waiting in line, another customer also joined the line behind me. However, rather than occupying the square six feet back, he got right behind me with less than a foot of distance between us. I asked him to move back to the social distancing square, but he said to me, "Naw, you've got plenty of room". I then stepped out of line and looked for another register to pay for my items.

As I walked away, I noticed a rather big and burly Lowe's associate (wearing a mask) come swiftly within not more than six feet of me and he asked me to stop. He quickly moved past me and confronted the man who had been behind me in line. The Lowe's associate took the merchandise from the man and demanded he leave the store immediately. The man began to say something ("This is America and you've got no right...") but the Lowe's associate interrupted him and stated loudly, "You've got 30 seconds to get out that door before I throw you out."

The associate then invited me to return to the line as he then escorted the social distancing violator outside.

After I made my purchases and went outside to my car, I noticed the same man being interviewed by a county deputy in front of the store.

Makes me want to go shop at Lowes now. I doubt we'll see this type of enforcement at Disney.
